As of 1 December 2017, Christian Bauerschmidt (54) was appointed to the three-member management team of TÜV SÜD Industrie Service GmbH. The new Managing Director has taken over responsibility for the Real Estate and Infrastructure Division. TÜV SÜD Industrie Service, one of the leading suppliers of engineering, inspection and consulting services in Germany, attends to the safety, cost-effectiveness and sustainability of plants, buildings and infrastructure.
In addition to a degree in mechanical engineering, Christian Bauerschmidt brings over 25 years of experience from various stages in his career in the real-estate sector to the table in his new position. Holding a series of executive positions from 1991 to 2002, he was responsible for the technical design and project management of large construction projects. As an IT expert, he has explored digital business models in the real-estate industry since the beginnings of the Internet. Bauerschmidt headed his own IT and facility management consulting firm between 2002 and 2008. In 2008 he brought his know-how to Droege International Group AG, where he completed international management consulting projects that focused on growth and efficiency improvement and achieved a sustainable increase in enterprise value.
Christian Bauerschmidt joined TÜV SÜD Industrie Service GmbH in 2011. As Business Unit Manager Electrical Systems and Building Services Systems, he set new standards in business development. “The real-estate market is characterised by high demand and a lack of qualified workforce. We launched dedicated recruitment campaigns that succeeded in attracting qualified employees and high potentials to executive positions”, says Christian Bauerschmidt. “Dedicated recruitment, an efficient training programme for our highly qualified experts and our strong customer focus are among the key success factors that have fuelled the dynamic and profitable growth of our business unit over the past six years.” Parallel to everyday business, Bauerschmidt also founded the TÜV SÜD startup, “Objektbrief”, a CAFM platform for efficient technical building management, thereby setting a strong course for the further development of the business unit and its digital future.
As the new Managing Director, Christian Bauerschmidt is responsible for real-estate services, activities in the Baden-Wuerttemberg region and sales and marketing at TÜV SÜD Industrie Service. He thus succeeds Dr Ulrich Klotz, who left the company at his own request. Together with CEO Ferdinand Neuwieser and CFO Thomas Kainz, Bauerschmidt completes the management team. The team will build on the successful development of TÜV SÜD Industrie Service, and specifically drive the development of innovative services and industry-specific solution packages.
