As part of its expected growth, PATRIZIA is now expanding its Corporate Development segment. The company gained an internationally experienced manager in Wolfgang Speckhahn, who has been Head of Strategy and Business Development for PATRIZIA Immobilien AG since June 1, 2012.
Wolfgang Speckhahn has long-standing experience and relevant expertise in the area of fund development, structuring global investment vehicles and in portfolio management. Most recently, the 48-year old lawyer and tax law specialist was Real Estate Investment Director at Zurich Insurance Company Ltd. in Zürich.

As well as his legal training, Wolfgang Speckhahn also has a degree in real estate and is a Master of International & European Business Law (LL.M.) and a Chartered Surveyor (MRICS).
PATRIZIA Immobilien AG is developing into the leading fully integrated real estate investment house. Since the company’s establishment nearly 30 years ago, its real estate assets have steadily risen to reach €7 billion today. Assets under management are expected to grow to €10 billion by 2015.
