Why NEWPORT? Having worked with a competitor for 16 years, it was time for a new challenge at the beginning of this year. NEWPORT combines concentrated competence with personality. Everyone gets an insight into what is going on, can play an active part and participates in the success of the company. Flat hierarchies enable quick decisions. I appreciate the cooperation with different investor groups and international colleagues. I also find it fascinating that a small team can achieve so much. As a number’s person, I was immediately impressed by the track record driven by good investment strategies. In Germany, for example, the focus is on light industrial investments. The exciting aspect is that these industrial parks are not newly designated anymore. We are securing properties that are becoming increasingly rare and increasingly relevant. Many companies can no longer afford the high rents in midtown areas, and we offer them a well-connected alternative close to the center.
What is your scope of activities? My main focus is on liquidity planning. I calculate revenues and talk to banks. In addition, I take care of payment transactions, pay salaries, and settle invoices. I prepare regular reports for our investors and banks. Cash flow models indicate the profitability of a project. I like to call myself a number cruncher. At the same time, I am the link between tax consulting, investors, and NEWPORT – both in the US and in Germany. Outside of my actual field of activity, I fill in for colleagues, also take on administrative tasks and, occasionally, arrange flowers for our office.
Keyword team spirit: what makes the NEWPORT team special? We are a team at eye level. We help each other and all have the same goal: to grow together with NEWPORT. After just six months on the job, it already feels very familiar to work here. The working atmosphere is open, personal, creative, and productive. So every now and then I like to bring along something home-baked.
What motivates you? We are a small, owner-operated company. Everyone is granted responsibility and all tasks are relevant. The success of having mastered a project motivates me. It makes me proud to be involved in something that, when successfully completed, is visible to all, and contributes to NEWPORT’s growth. A current example is our new website.
For me, real estate investment means ... bringing a building to life. Most people only see the end result of a property, yet the journey from site acquisition to concept development and the construction process to letting is a long one and involves many people. Every property tells its own stories.
