2018, A Transcendental Year for Amat Group
Posted by Verónica Martín — January 15, 2018
BARCELONA, SPAIN - Amat, founded in 1948 in Sant Just Desvern (Barcelona) by Joan Amat, father of Immaculada and Joana Amat, culminates the 3th generational change in 2018 by giving the executive direction to Guifré Homedes, son of Immaculada Amat.
Exactly 70 years ago, Joan Amat opened Finques Amat, a real estate office in Sant Just Desvern. Four years later, his sudden death precipitated that his wife, Concepción Amigó, decided to take control and move the business forward. It was in the 60-70's when the first generational change took place with the incorporation of the daughters, Immaculada and Joana Amat, to the company assuming the management.
Now, in 2018, Amat Group celebrates the 70th anniversary coinciding with another generational change that entails the change of Amat Immobiliaris management. Guifré Homedes, son of Immaculada Amat, will start running the family business as a CEO. Guifré, graduated as an industrial engineer, joined the family business in 2010 as a manager of the commercial office that was opening in Barcelona at that time.
To these facts is added the opening of a new office in Sant Cugat. The two that already existed have been unified in a new and larger premise with a better location in the center of the population to improve customer service, and another in Barcelona. The latter is located on Via Augusta with Diagonal, a strategic location of a 370 m2 site that will accommodate 22 people, whose opening is expected in the first quarter of 2018.
