Stuttgart, Germany, November 19, 2021. Marc Schömbs will join Steffen Szeidl and Dierk Mutschler on the Executive Board of Drees & Sommer SE from 1 January 2022.

Drees & Sommer SE is growing continuously. Based in Stuttgart, the consulting, planning and project management company is continuing to train its focus on the future. This includes broadening its range of services through international mergers, startup programs and innovative projects for the future – all with the aim of creating a livable world.

Marc Schömbs (50) completed his architecture studies at the Technical University of Darmstadt. Before joining Drees & Sommer he was involved in design, planning and project management on high-rise building construction projects in Germany and internationally. He started at Drees & Sommer in 2000 as a qualified architect with high-rise building construction as a specialism. As a project manager, he was responsible for bringing to a successful conclusion prestigious projects such as Highlight Towers in Munich, the European Central Bank in Frankfurt am Main, and the sustainable renovation of the Deutsche Bank headquarters in Frankfurt. In 2008 he was appointed to the management team of Drees & Sommer’s office in Frankfurt am Main and became its Managing Director seven years later.

Since 2010, as a Partner of the Drees & Sommer Group, he has shared responsibility for the entire group. He believes in a sustainable and integrated approach to consulting.

In both his client projects and internally, he successfully implements projects and processes in which the staff develop their own optimum, integrated working conditions, which are then implemented exactly according to their needs, for instance in Frankfurt in the relocation to Hanauer Landstrasse.

‘On the basis of his more than 20 years of close, loyal work with the Executive Board, the Partners and the staff, we are confident that Marc Schömbs will be effective in heading the core operating business and responding to the needs of employees. We very much look forward to sharing continued success with him,’ said Professor Dr. Hans Sommer, Chairperson of the Supervisory Board of Drees & Sommer SE.

Dierk Mutschler continues to be responsible for client orientation and products in all relevant markets. Steffen Szeidl will be responsible for future strategy and direction; sustainable and digital corporate development; and international orientation of the company. He is also the Spokesperson of the Management Board.
