“I entrusted Philippe Riboton with the recruitment of our key managers across Europe because I believe he has not only the ability to identify the skills that we needed, but also the capability to interact with me and execute my vision.

Simply said, Philippe has been almost like our outsourced Human Resources Director during both our years of international expansion and the critical years of restructuring.”

A graduate in Finance and Economics from the Political Sciences Institute in Grenoble, Mr. Ott founded Orco Property Group SA in 1991 and remained its Chairman and CEO for the next 23 years as Orco became one of the largest property companies in Central and Eastern Europe. In 2015 Mr Ott founded Ott Properties, a European development and asset management group with a current portfolio of properties in Prague, Paris and Berlin.
