Michael Pieper is the CEO of Artemis Real Estate Partners.
That might sound impressive, but be aware that it is not all. The Artemis Group controls the Franke Group, the Artemis Real Estate Group, the Artemis Asset Management Group and the Feintool Group.
Franke was founded in 1911 by Hermann Franke beginning with the production of oven tops, skylights and dormer windows.
Today, it is one of the most well-known makers of kitchen sinks and hoods, cooking appliances and other industrial-grade kitchen equipment.
It is worth knowing about the importance of this company because Will Pieper, Michael’s father bought it in 1975. And that’s how it ended up under the Artemis Group.
Michael took over his father legacy in 1989 and began an overseas expansion into Eastern Europe, Asia, North and South America, and Africa.
