BOARD

Luke Bruins MSc MRE

Executive board Red Concepts Group

'‘Many years of entrepreneurship have made me realising and understanding my own drive and passion; envisioning an idea with a great team and ''just doing it''! And that, is getting more fun every day!'‘

Luke Bruins graduated from Delft University of Technology with a Master’s in Civil Engineering.
He later added a Master’s in Real Estate from the University of Amsterdam and a Post-Master’s in Organisational Leadership from the MDA Business School. After five years of contracting and development in Europe, for the company nowdays named Sweco, he turned his entrepreneurial dream into reality by founding RED Concepts.

 

Luke’s vast experience of construction and development in Europe and in setting up and organising new businesses led him to his greatest passion: envisioning an idea with a great and committed team.

Throughout years, he diversified its portfolio with two additional platforms. A residential development platform (WeBuildHomes - 2012) and a Prefabricated Volumatic contracting platform (FRAME – 2017); both platforms challenge the traditional construction industry in Europe and are active in Sweden and the Netherlands.

With Valo he has now made its entry in the hotel&leisure development and exploitation. Valo will realize it’s first luxury retreat in northern Labland in 2019.
