The international real estate organisation CBRE has been a partner of the Concertgebouworkest since 2016. It was completely by chance that Marco Hekman, Managing Director of CBRE, attended his very first Concertgebouworkest concert – in Tokyo. Within just five minutes, he knew it was the perfect sponsorship opportunity for his company. The rest, as they say, is history.
‘Few organisations in the Netherlands have the same kind of ambitions as CBRE does. Our goal is to be the global leader in real estate services. The Concertgebouworkest ranks among the top three orchestras in the world. That professional image, bolstered by passionate, talented people, fits perfectly with our own organisation.’
- Marco Hekman – Managing Director of Continental Europe, CBRE
CBRE’s ambition is to create property and housing solutions which add real value. In order to achieve this, the real estate services provider looks for the best possible ways to collaborate within and outside the organisation, and with its clients. The aim is to achieve exceptional results that CBRE’s clients and employees are proud of.
CBRE employs 70,000 people worldwide. ‘The size of our organisation is an advantage when it comes to attracting young talent. And that goes for the Concertgebouworkest as well, since it, too, attracts talent from all over the world,’ says Marco Hekman.
