Hamburg, 09 August 2016. Launching their own business, Jan Rouven Künzel and Theja Geyer will jointly pursue what they have been successful at for 12 years: developing high-end real estate projects in prime locations. The well-known Hamburg entrepreneur Erck Rickmers was brought on board as shareholder and investor for the foundation of their new Hamburg-based company, Quest Investment Partners. Erck Rickmers is the founder and owner of the E.R.Group, which operates in the shipping, real estate and private equity sectors.
As a project developer and property manager in the German-speaking region, QUEST Investment Partners aims to continuously increase the property values of its shareholders. The company acts as an investment platform for private and institutional investors. Until the end of July, Künzel and Geyer were members of the management team and partners at Art-Invest Real Estate, heading up the Hamburg office. Their last major project was the conversion of Hamburg’s Alter Wall into a shopping and office complex featuring a new boulevard, an underground car park and a footbridge. In agreement with Art-Invest Real Estate, Künzel and Geyer are leaving this successful project in order to embark on their own path of self-employment.
