Drees & Sommer has been assisting private and public builders as well as investors with all real estate-related questions for more than 45 years. This partner-managed company, whose headquarters are located in Stuttgart, is represented at 43 locations around the world, and sets the trend in the area of development management, infrastructure consulting, project management, real estate consulting and engineering.

The idea that the "garage company" consisting of a three member team, which was founded in 1970, would become an international company with about 3,200 employees 45 years later, was not something that founders Gerhard Drees and Hans Sommer considered at the time.

Innovation and "thinking differently" have remained the defining characteristics of the company until today. Its employees rely on entrepreneurial and customer-oriented action - while at the same time preserving as much decision-making freedom as possible.
