Meet Stefan Roost MRICS: member of the board

After the elections in September 2017, we introduce you to the new board, and their roles and responsibilities. Our third interview is with Stefan Roost MRICS, who is on the board for his second term of three years.

What is your role on the Swiss board?

As the person responsible for finance and sponsoring, I work closely with the RICS staff to ensure proper financial governance. In addition, I support all members (board and non-board) in the area of sponsorship. As a member with a facilities management background, I also bring the view of our industry into the board of RICS Switzerland.

Being part of RICS is like many things  the more you use it, and the more you contribute, the more you benefit personally and in your career.

What do you want to achieve in your time on the board?

My motivation to join the board was on one hand to go further than just being a member and try to contribute to the good governance and the growth of RICS Switzerland. And on the other hand, to be part of a diverse and interesting group with a lot of interesting discussions.

What is your professional role and career path?

I am responsible for the business development of CBRE GWS in Switzerland and the adjacent south-western part of Germany. CBRE GWS is a global facilities management provider with a wide range of clients from life sciences, to banking and technology. Our aspiration is to provide FM services to the customer with the high level of proficiency. And in doing so to prove that we can contribute to the customer’s efficiency.

What first interested you in RICS?

The people that are members and who are working for RICS, as well as the knowledge I can find at RICS. Being part of RICS is like many things  the more you use it, and the more you contribute, the more you benefit personally and in your career. 

What first got you interested in a career in real estate?

I always liked tangible things and what is more tangible than real estate? That said, I also like to develop and think about non-tangible things, eg. concepts, strategies, etc. In my opinion, real estate offers a great variety of those two worlds.
