In January 2019, Dr Jan Peter Annecke will take over as head of Helaba's business unit "Real Estate Lending Germany". In future, he will be responsible for real estate lending in Berlin and Munich as well as in the Northwest and Southwest regions. Annecke will also be in charge of Helaba's real estate financing activities in Switzerland and Austria. In addition, the division covers transaction management and digitalisation (real estate projects). In his capacity as division head, he will report directly to the respective member of the Board of Managing Directors, Christian Schmid, who is looking forward to working together with Dr Annecke: “In appointing Dr Jan Peter Annecke, we have been fortunate to acquire a proven expert for Helaba who has many years of experience in lending and acquisitions.”
Dr Annecke, who holds a PhD in economics, most recently worked for Münchener Hypothekenbank eG, where he headed up the market division of Commercial Real Estate Finance. Annecke started his almost 20-year career in financial services at Bayerische Hypo- und Vereinsbank AG as a credit analyst in the central credit risk management division, finally joining Münchener Hypothekenbank eG in 2005 via other senior positions at Hypo Real Estate (today: Deutsche Pfandbriefbank). Annecke succeeds Michael Berger, who retired at the end of November after almost 41 years with Helaba. Christian Schmid: “We would like to thank Michael Berger for his outstanding commitment and his extremely successful work for Helaba. We wish him all the best for this new phase of his life.”
