International Career at Continental AG
Lasse Laging was one of the first graduates in Logistics Master at ISM Frankfurt/Main. He particularly liked the extensive practical experience of the lecturers during his studies: "We received valuable first-hand information from which I still profit in my job today”. After completing his studies, he first joined Schenker Deutschland AG as Manager Sales & Support in the Logistics & Strategy department. He had already got to know the company during an internship during his logistics studies. In search of an internationally oriented position, he moved to Continental AG, one of the world's largest automotive suppliers and market leader in tire production in Germany. Lasse Laging now works there as Corporate Real Estate Manager. He had already discovered his interest in the real estate sector during his previous work, where he accompanied various projects in this area.
His day-to-day work at Continental AG is very varied: "I work very project-oriented. In essence, I deal with the procurement of warehouse real estate, negotiations with owners and brokers as well as the drafting of contracts for the purchase and sale of real estate. My function as an interface between owners, developers, investors, cities and the users of real estate - in an international context - is particularly appealing". Within a global team, he manages and directs a wide range of real estate projects, most of which involve short-term requirements and therefore require a high degree of flexibility.
Lasse Laging's current position as Corporate Real Estate Manager shows that ISM prepares its students for professional life with a broad and comprehensive education and a broad spectrum of skills. "I would like to pass on my experience and knowledge to the ISM students and support them e.g. in their search for an internship as well as in questions concerning their logistics studies at ISM". ISM students who would like to contact Lasse Laging can reach him at XING or LinkedIn.
