Company development

Entrepreneurialism,
courage and milestones.

ABG was founded in Munich in 1967 with the objective of developing large commercial and residential properties across Germany. In a history stretching back over half a century the company has brought countless building projects to life. ABG has revitalised whole districts, inspired people and achieved milestones.

2020
Dr. Walter Wübben leaves the operational business but remains as shareholder. The former managing partner and co-shareholder Dr. Rainer Sticken retires from the company as planned. Ulrich Höller joins as shareholder and becomes the new chairman of the management board (CEO) of the group, now renamed the ABG Real Estate Group. And so, a new era begins.

After an almost 10-year absence, the company establishes a new office in Frankfurt am Main. In future, this office will play a pivotal role in the operational business.
