Berlin, 15 September 2020 – ACCENTRO Real Estate AG, Germany’s leading housing privatisation company, is enlarging its management board. Effective as of 16 November 2020, the supervisory board appointed Hans-Peter Kneip as CFO of ACCENTRO Real Estate AG.
Aged 41, the business economist is transferring from LEG Immobilien AG where he acts as division head of corporate finance, treasury and controlling while also being a member of the executive management. He has been with LEG Immobilien AG since 2014 and set up the corporate finance division after the company’s initial public offering.
Previously, Hans-Peter Kneip was in charge of the corporate finance division of the Berlin-based property company GSW Immobilien AG (now Deutsche Wohnen SE).
Before his transfer into the real estate industry, he spent almost seven years in corporate and investment banking at Société Générale in Paris, London and Frankfurt in various positions, most recently as Vice President Equity Capital Markets and Strategic Equity Transactions.
“With his long-term experience both in the real estate industry and in the capital market business, Hans-Peter Kneip brings the perfect qualifications for his future task in our company. We are very pleased that he will strengthen our management board,” said Axel Harloff, chairman of the supervisory board of ACCENTRO Real Estate AG.
Lars Schriewer, member of the management board and CEO of ACCENTRO Real Estate AG, added: “I very much look forward to working with Hans-Peter Kneip as fellow board member. His comprehensive experience in the area of corporate finance and his superb network in the capital market are an important basis for the further growth of our company.”
