Rotary Business Profile & Networking Event - Franz Gehriger, CEO, SwissReal

Rotary Vancouver Events is happy to announce that former club president, Franz Gehriger, CEO of Swiss Real Group, will be hosting our function.

Franz came to Canada from Switzerland and began his career in banking before moving into commercial real estate, where he was president of Polaris Realty. He subsequently founded SwissReal in 1984.

We look forward to hearing about Franz's immigration and business story, his affiliation and dedication to Rotary over the years, and his latest project with Credit Suisse to preserve and transform Vancouver's Old Stock Exchange building into a 31-floor LEED Platinum certified commercial office building.

    The Rotary Business Profile/Networking Event met my expectations and MORE! The hosts
    were exceptional, thank you Franz, Brian and John. From start to finish, complete with beverages and h'orderves, mingling/networking, the evening was very enjoyable and most informative.
    To hear Franz Gehriger tell his story of where and how he grew up, walking us along the trail which led him to where he is today, his success stories as well as his mistakes was inspirational to say the least. We heard his account of how he acquired the Old Stock Exchange building and the vision he and his architects have been working on to create a world class, green, sustainable office building in the heart of Vancouver. I am very glad I attended, my thanks to all who created this event.
