Founders and


The 12.18. Group was founded in 2006 by Jörg Lindner and Kai Richter. Following Kai Richter’s sudden and unexpected death in 2020, Jörg Lindner took over the company as managing partner, supported by CEO Uwe Drangmeister.

Jörg Lindner has gained more than 40 years of experience in project development, financing and the management of residential properties, offices, retail properties and hotels. Chief Financial Officer Uwe Drangmeister is a finance expert with more than 25 years of experience under his belt. They’re a tandem team that embodies the strengths of the 12.18. Group in a competent and unique manner.

Our range of services

We leave nothing to chance.

We leave it to the experts.

What we do can be easily summed up: We create added value for investors. What we are capable of is more difficult to express. Because we unite the relevant aspects of a successful tourism investment under one roof. From purchase and concept to financing, revitalisation to sales.

In order to meet the high standards we set for ourselves and the expectations of hotel guests and investors alike, the 12.18. Group is made up of different departments that cover each one of these aspects with their specific expertise. Together, we are single-handedly able to cover a range of services, for which our competitors have to commission, monitor and coordinate external companies.
