redos Group strengthens Hamburg based real estate team with three new hires

Hamburg-based redos Group, one of Germany’s leading retail property specialists, has announced three major new additions to its team: Jan Steinhauer (43) as Technical Head, Dr. Till Dunemann (38) as Director and Project Head – Rhein-Ruhr Zentrum, and Mathis K. Freundl (32) as Finance Manager.

Mr. Steinhauer and Dr. Dunemann will round out the project team carrying out the revitalisation of the Rhein-Ruhr Zentrum (RRZ), a shopping centre located in Mülheim an der Ruhr, in the heart of Germany’s densely populated Rhine-Ruhr region. With total leasable space of approx. 140,000 sq.m. and a total investment amount of roughly EUR 200 million, RRZ marks the largest revitalisation project which redos has undertaken to date. 

As the company’s new Technical Head, Steinhauer will play a key role in coordinating the project manager and general contractor. Before joining redos, his previous professional career included six and a half years as senior project partner and director at Drees & Sommer, as well as prior work at ECE Projektmanagement GmbH & Co. KG.

Dr. Dunemann, who now assumes overall project responsibility for RRZ, likewise worked previously at ECE Projektmanagement GmbH & Co. KG, where he served in various positions, most recently as asset manager.

In his new post, Mr. Freundl will manage financing needs within the redos Group, particularly in conjunction with the Rhein-Ruhr Zentrum project. Freundl joins from PricewaterhouseCoopers Germany, where he completed some two years as senior associate in Advisory. He previously worked as an investment analyst for Aquila Capital.

“With the additions of Jan Steinhauer, Dr. Till Dunemann and Mathis K. Freundl, we have added three experienced specialists to our team,” says Oliver Herrmann, Managing Director and Head of Business Development at redos. “They will add long-term strength to our Shopping Centres team, headed by Carola Obermöller and Christine Hager. Retail real estate in Germany, as an asset class, continues to offer very attractive investment potential.”
