What sets us apart


Partnership is integral part of the Drees & Sommer Group corporate structure and is reflected in the relationship between senior managers and employees regardless of experience, and the way we operate in the marketplace.

As Managing Partners, the Partners run the Drees & Sommer Group. Our Project Managers tackle the nuts and bolts of business, working in teams to realize projects. Employees who take responsibility for an entire project become Project Partners. And those who develop expertise in a specialized field become Senior Project Partners. If they assume additional responsibilities, they can become Associate Partners. This means that every employee has the opportunity to advance within the partnership – through personal ability, commitment and appropriate experience.

Spirit for Success

Drees & Sommer has a passionate commitment to ensuring the success of client projects. We take a great deal of responsibility, show huge commitment, and all pull together.

Teams from many different departments, cities and countries with different cultural backgrounds, languages work together. Each individual’s personality and strengths are welcomed. But it is equally important that employees work constructively with one another to ensure the success of the project as a whole. Only in this way can small teams become regional, national and international networks – culminating in the global Drees & Sommer network.

We love our work, and enjoy both our clients’ success and our own – which is why Drees & Sommer employees are mutually supportive. Experienced team members pass on their knowledge – both in our in-house Academy and in everyday work situations. A positive working environment, fairness and openness – as well as celebrating joint successes and participating in sports together in our leisure time – are all part of the Drees & Sommer approach. It is the way we operate. We call it Spirit for Success.
