Business philosophy
Jakob Mähren laid the foundation for a successful career in the real estate industry at a young age with business acumen, implementation strength and courage. Today, he is CEO of MÄHREN AG, a group of companies with more than 70 employees. In addition, Jakob is regularly active in the public arena for business issues.
“Turnover is based on execution”
The question about the formula for success comes up regularly for Jakob. Business partners, followers, journalists or acquaintances want to know how the entrepreneur achieved his business success. A formula? A statement: Just do it! In Jakob’s view, the profession should be a vocation, should ignite passion – and  you should deal honestly and respectfully with business partners and colleagues. That’s the attitude behind success. And then it’s all about one thing: implementing the goals you set and setting new ones every day. And never lose the fun in the process.
Reliable partner
As a reliable partner and through professionalism and continuity, Jakob has established itself in the real estate market over the long term. The entrepreneur invests mainly in residential real estate in promising locations – initially in Berlin, then in several locations in Germany, and now also in Austria, Italy and the USA. Jakob has a distinctive market expertise, comprehensive know-how for strategic investments and a first-class network.
Reliable and purposeful action
Jakob is characterized by reliable, strategic and goal-oriented action. A high degree of integrity also prompts him to encourage dialog and the exchange of ideas – whether with business partners or with employees. His motto: “If you want to move the world, you have to move yourself first”. He never stands still. “In my opinion, anyone who wants to be successful in business should not dwell too long in theory, but develop business acumen and apply it judiciously.” This focused approach and openness to dialogue and exchange prompted Deutsche Bank to appoint Jakob to the Advisory Board of Deutsche Bank AG in April 2016. With his expertise, he strengthens the real estate industry.

Personal contact
The Berlin native is passionate about his work. “Since I started working in the real estate industry, I have known that transparency and information are of utmost importance. That’s why personal business contact is my top priority.” His partners appreciate that.
The real estate entrepreneur is constantly on the lookout for new properties, is available to his customers as a personal contact in a spirit of trust, and enjoys taking on new challenges. Jakob is particularly appreciated by his business partners for his fairness and responsible actions.
Young professionals
Jakob knows the situation of being a young entrepreneur at the beginning of a long career – with all the uncertainties, questions and imponderables. With his success story behind him, he is therefore happy to regularly support the next generation, passing on tips, suggestions and motivation and investing in promising young companies.
“It’s all about the team.”
In 20 years, Jakob’s business activities have grown into a group of companies with more than 70 employees. During this period of growth, he has always relied on the strength and solidarity of the team.
Mähren AG Team

Without each individual in the MÄHREN AG team, the entire company and I would not be where we are. At the same time, I am proud to have helped build such a professional team and grateful to be part of it.

Remote work as a success concept
Jakob attaches great importance to being able to work from anywhere in the world. At MÄHREN AG, it has been standard practice since 2020 at the latest to carry out all meetings and make decisions remotely using digital communication tools if necessary. The entire company was set up early on, not least at the CEO’s request, to be able to act from anywhere if the situation required it. Nevertheless, all team members are happy to meet in person at the Berlin headquarters on a regular basis and as often as possible. “There’s nothing like the personal contact and then team spirit that comes from being together.”
Social commitment
Social commitment is a matter close to Jakob’s heart. The Jakob Mähren Foundation was established in 2015 through his impulse. The foundation supports local social and charitable initiatives for sick and disadvantaged children in the greater Berlin area. Through its own fundraising activities and cooperation projects, the Jakob Mähren Stiftung has succeeded in supporting charitable projects in the past.
