Christian Landes

Founder and Managing Director

“With ECEMENT we pursue the goal of a customised international trading platform for the cement industry. From our point of view, the development of the platform is a logical step on the way to the digital trade of building materials. We are thus filling an existing gap”.


Christian Landes has extensive experience in the building materials industry and is involved as a serial entrepreneur in the establishment of several companies.

After completing his studies in civil and industrial engineering, he worked for several years as a manager at a globally active construction materials group. 

In the last 10 years, he has been involved in various software and digitisation projects – most recently with the development of a block chain platform for the real estate industry.

Today, he is the creative visionary behind the N1 Trading idea and is responsible for the management.
