The company was founded under the name of Lexzau, Scharbau in Hamburg in 1879 by Wilhelm Lexzau and Julius Scharbau. In 1992, Jörg Conrad became the owner and active managing director of the international Leschaco Group.

Since August 2021, his children Constantin Conrad (Chief Digital Officer and Member of the Executive Board in the Leschaco Group) and Charlotte Palermo (HR Projects Manager in the Leschaco Group) have been part owners. At the same time, Constantin Conrad was appointed Managing Director with sole power of representation. Following the death of Jörg Conrad in October 2022, Constantin Conrad took over the role as CEO.

Today the owner-managed medium-sized Company with 92 own offices and more than 3,300 employees in more than 24 countries is there for its customers worldwide. The own network is further strengthened by selected agents all over the world. We are where the industry and the trade need us.
