Helaba at EXPO REAL 2017
EXPO REAL, one of Europe’s largest B2B trade fairs for property and investment, opens its doors from 4 to 6 October 2017 in Munich. As in previous years, the Helaba Group will be represented with an eye-catching stand. Herbert Hans Grüntker, the Chairman of Helaba’s Board of Managing Directors, marked the opening of the fair by welcoming guests at Helaba’s stand in a short address and wishing everyone present a successful exhibition.
Grüntker took the opportunity to introduce Christian Schmid, who has been an Executive Vice President at Helaba since 1 October 2017. Schmid is responsible for the business units of Real Estate Lending, Debt Capital Markets and Sales Management RE, Real Estate Management, Administration as well as the subsidiaries GWH and OFB.

I am delighted to be able to introduce myself in my position as Helaba’s Executive Vice President for real estate in a forum such as this.”
