“We are very pleased about the trust that our customers place in us with these mandates,” says Christian Schröder, Managing Director (COO) of MEC. “We see this trust both as a mandate and as an incentive to professionally manage the centers in our common interest and to develop them further in a sustainable manner. The Chief Operating Officer of MEC sees common values for business success such as security, sustainability and growth as the basis of the cooperation.
