Meet Liesa

Supporter of frank communication & Associate Special Projects at Allianz Real Estate in Frankfurt, Germany.

She says: “No work week is like the other.”

  • What’s your mission at Allianz?

    I am involved in special projects covering a diverse field of responsibilities, e.g. promoting digitalization/innovation topics as well as the implementation of debt and equity strategies. 3P client service, the general support of Allianz Real Estate’s CEO office North & Central Europe and driving the rollout of our customer relationship management tool for the Acquisition & Sales team are some of my main tasks.

    What’s your career progression?

    Before joining Allianz, I worked as a tutor in Real Estate Investment at Florida International University in Miami and at the International Real Estate Business School in Regensburg, where I earned my doctorate. During this time, I also worked for a start-up investment manager - DW Real Estate in Munich - as an analyst for value-add investments. While studying, I always tried to add practical experience. This included internships at JLL Hong Kong and at Deloitte, as well as student jobs for diverse developers, all of which led to a comprehensive understanding of the real estate value chain.

    What's surprising about your job?

    It should not be surprising anymore, but real estate is still a conservative industry. I like the fact that I work for two female bosses and that the project teams of Allianz Real Estate are predominately heterogeneous.

    What’s your main career advice? What inspires you?

    Do not be afraid to take on a new project for which you might think that you do not have the necessary experience. Taking on challenges is fun and enables you to broaden your skills.

    I am always inspired by leaders who can both create value and strive to achieve a better sustainable future.
