Deutsche Wohnen appoints an executive for construction


The supervisory board of Deutsche Wohnen has decided to appoint Henrik Thomsen (born in 1964) to the group’s executive board. His tasks: new construction, modernization and refurbishing projects, quarter development and smart living investments. Thomsen will be responsible for an annual investment volume of €500mn. He will assume the newly created position on 1 January of next year. Until then he will be Managing Director of Berlin-based housing developer Groth Development. Prior to that, he worked for CA Immo, where he was in charge of the Europacity project near Berlin’s main station. The new position permanently increases the Deutsche-Wohnen executive board from three to four members: CEO Michael Zahn and CFO Philip Grosse were recently joined by Lars Urbansky, who is taking over COO Lars Wittan’s responsibility for ongoing customer business. Wittan will be leaving the company no later than September.
