TME Associates Expands its Presence in Switzerland and Broadens its Consultancy Offerings
R2 Partners and TME Associates have entered into a joint venture, enhancing the Swiss platform already established by TME Associates. Within the framework of TME Associates, institutional clients, investment managers, and corporations will now receive more extensive and profound expertise both on an international and local scale. In Switzerland, the management team will be expanded to include Reto Iseli, alongside the existing Managing Partner, Dr. Wolfgang Speckhahn, both of whom are part of TME Associates' Global Steering Board. Furthermore, TME's advisory team will be extended to include Radhia Rüttimann, Raymond Rüttimann, and Daniel Tochtermann.
TME Associates is complementing its team in Switzerland with several well-connected real estate specialists who, after departing from Credit Suisse and establishing R2 Partners, are now strengthening TME Associates' team. The expanded consulting services in real estate investment and management now provide Swiss clients with a comprehensive range of expertise, from strategy development, innovative business model creation, product and service design, organizational optimization, process management, to implementation support and interim management.
Dr. Wolfgang Speckhahn, LL.M. MRICS, has been a partner at TME Associates since 2019 and has been leading activities in Switzerland since then. The lawyer and real estate economist brings over 30 years of professional experience in senior positions at various internationally operating companies in the real estate industry, including SEB Investment Management, DIC, Zurich Financial Services, and Patrizia Immobilien. His international experience in investment and portfolio management, project development, and strategy in cross-border contexts contributes to his role as Competence Lead for Investment Advisory at TME Associates.
Reto Iseli is a partner at R2 Partners and brings extensive experience in the real estate, banking, and management consulting sectors. He held various global roles in asset management and international wealth management at Credit Suisse. His most recent role was leading the Real Estate Mandates, Solutions & Advisory department, where he was responsible for real estate mandates in Switzerland, Europe, and the USA. Before his tenure at Credit Suisse, he worked as a consultant for the consulting firm Oliver Wyman and UBS.
"We have built a strong presence in Switzerland over the past three years under the leadership of Dr. Wolfgang Speckhahn. With the joint venture and the expansion of our partner network to include Reto Iseli, we can underscore our commitment to the Swiss market and further expand our services," says Arnd Reifenrath, CEO of TME Associates.
