The Real Estate division of the Eucon Group, digital service provider for the real estate, automotive and insurance industries, is continuing to expand its real estate data business. With this step, Eucon is building on the growth strategy that was adopted with the VHV Group in August 2021. Markus Linden, most recently Managing Director of Ampega Real Estate, is joining Eucon as Senior Advisor Real Estate. Heike Gündling, who has been Managing Director for Eucon since 2018, is taking over the management of a tech company in Berlin.

Sven Krüger, CEO of the Eucon Group, comments: “The relatively low degree of digitalization in the real estate industry holds considerable growth potential for us and our shareholder, the VHV Group. With the digitalization expert Philipp Schäfer and the well-connected real estate manager Markus Linden, we will continue to develop our Real Estate division. In this way, we will gradually establish real estate as an equal pillar in our business model alongside Automotive and Insurance.”
Philipp Schäfer, Managing Director of Eucon Real Estate, says: “In VHV, we have a strategic partner who has our back in building out the division. In addition to the further development of our invoice management solution, we are planning the development of new products for all aspects of building usage costs and ESG-relevant data.” Schäfer adds: “I would like to thank my colleague Heike Gündling for her dedication over the past three years. We can seamlessly build on her successes.” In this connection, a tripling of the real estate team is planned by the end of 2023.
Philipp Schäfer is an expert in cross-industry digital transformation. After working for several years at Roland Berger and the Boston Consulting Group, the business engineer joined Eucon in 2018, where he set up the Corporate Strategy division before taking on responsibility for the Real Estate division in February 2021. Since 2006, Markus Linden has been a member of the management team at Ampega Real Estate, the real estate arm of the asset manager Ampega Asset Management belonging to the Talanx insurance group.
In his new role as Senior Advisor, Markus Linden will bridge the gap between the digital service provider and the real estate companies in order to develop needs-based new products.
In the Real Estate division, Eucon offers SmartInvoice, an AI-based solution for invoice management that has been recognized by the ZIA, the German Central Real Estate Committee, among others. The central data platform creates added value in building management through full cost transparency at building level, and is consequently an important step towards the “digital twin” of commercial properties.
