Marion Rahn is CFO at PlanetHome Investment AG
Berlin, 20 October 2021 – Marion Rahn, MRICS, (44) is the new CFO at PlanetHome Investment AG. Rahn moves from Berlin Hyp AG, where she was head of department responsible for real estate valuation for the entire southwest of Germany. Further professional stations in the banking sector included Eurohypo Aktiengesellschaft and Westdeutsche ImmobilienBank AG. During the founding phase of NATIXIS Pfandbriefbank AG, she built up the real estate valuation division there.
Rahn successfully completed her BSc (Hons) in Real Estate Management at Oxford Brookes University and her Masters in Property Investment at the University of Reading. Due to her positions at JLL and JKT Immobilien, she already has 25 years of professional experience in the national and international real estate industry.
“With Marion Rahn, we have been able to inspire a real estate expert who is unique in Germany to join our still young company,” says Nikolai von Imhof, CEO of PlanetHome Investment AG. “From portfolio analysis to construction details, she has mastered all product-relevant issues. She is the best prerequisite for us to be able to present a default-free balance sheet in the future.”
