Besides the three owners of the Glück Auf Group – Sven Fischer, Wolfgang Rübben and his own brother Rainer Gunz – Robert Gunz is employed as managing director and is chiefly responsible for the studios and coworking areas of the business amongst other things. He is also responsible for various real estate projects.
He can thank his father and his brother for awakening his interest in real estate as a competent of retirement investing at any early age. At the beginning of 2017, as the Glück Auf Group continued to expand, the opportunity came up to pursue his private interest professionally. Robert Gunz had previously worked in various specialist and management positions in human resources (inc. at thyssenkrupp, Peek & Cloppenburg Düsseldorf and RWE). Aside from his apprenticeship in business, the foundation of his professional carrier was laid by his graduate degree in business.
Despite a professional excurse to northern Germany, he has remained true to the Ruhr and was even able to convince his wife Barbara to move from Cologne to Essen. This is where they both live with their young daughter, Philippa. In private life, he is very much into Essen ice hockey (and takes part on the ice himself), overseas travel with a rucksack on his back, and cooking and eating together.
