  • EVANGroup registers massive interest from the hospitality industry for serviced apartments for hotel employees as part of its livinit concept
  • Prof. Gerhard contributes in-depth hotel experience
  • First milestones reached for property in Frankfurt am Main


Valletta, 16 January 2019: EVANGroup plc ("EVAN") (ISIN DE000A19L426 / WKN A19L42) has gained the services of Prof. Stephan Gerhard, an internationally recognised specialist for the hotel and restaurant industry, as a member of its Advisory Board. Thanks to his many years of experience as a consultant, expert appraiser, manager and academic, Prof. Gerhard combines theory and practice at a high level. As part of its livinit concept, EVAN is developing apartments especially for employees of the hotel and catering sector that are attracting great interest in the tourism industry and among hotel chains.

As the first project of this kind, the property in the Lyoner Straße in Frankfurt am Main is being extensively renovated and expanded. The first milestone has been achieved with the gutting of the property. Parallel to this, EVAN has defined the procedures necessary for smooth operation hand-in-hand with selected hotels and their employees in around 12 months of preliminary work and transferred them into IT specifications. The result is an Internet-based portal for administrative purposes such as booking, rental contracts, etc. and an app handling the social issues and concerns of the employees. The first prototypes of both applications have already been completed.

"We are breaking new ground in the field of "serviced apartments" by designing them specifically for highly mobile middle-income hotel employees. The expertise provided by Prof. Gerhard is particularly valuable for us and our customers in this area", says Dr. Michael Nave, Director and CEO of EVANGroup. "We have conducted many discussions with hotel operators during recent weeks and months. The general shortage of skilled workers is not without repercussions for them either, especially since employees often change their place of work for purposes of further training during the first ten years of their career. By offering highly modern accommodation at reasonable prices, individual establishments can increase their attractiveness as employers. We see it as our calling to support the hotels in the best possible way."

Professor Stephan Gerhard, member of the Advisory Board of EVANGroup, points out: "Finding good employees is increasingly becoming one of the major challenges in the hotel industry. While it is frequently possible to maintain staff houses in holiday regions, employees in metropolitan areas are often faced with an almost insoluble problem when looking for suitable living space. And this is exactly where the livinit concept comes in: high-quality apartments, made available to employees by the hotels at an affordable price, are a good argument in choosing a particular employer!"
