Group Structure

Founded in 1991 by CEO Franz Gmeiner, the Orion Group’s property assets have grown from an initial eleven-story office tower in downtown Johannesburg to a diversified group with assets in excess of R1 Billion. The Group’s vision has been formulated as One T 50 which will eventually result in an Orion experience presence in fifty countries.

The Group’s purpose is to create a lasting positive experience for our primary customers. The Brand promise “it’s happening” says it all.

The Orion Group consists of Orion Real Estate Ltd, Orion Hotels and Orion Services Division.

With a staff complement of around 550 people, the group is well placed to take advantage of business opportunities both locally and internationally.

Orion Group Teamwork makes the dream work

Orion Real Estate LTD currently owns a portfolio of commercial properties valued at around R628 million.

The Orion Services division (spread over a number of entities) is involved in Facility & Hotel Management, Security services, Cleaning services, Maintenance services, Project management, Asset Management, Fleet solutions, and Marketing & Reservations services.

At the cornerstone of the company’s success, is our people management philosophy, which is to accomplish ‘extraordinary results with ordinary people‘.  This philosophy is underpinned by a coaching system whereby all executives are or will be qualified coaches and all line managers and supervisors will have undergone a coaching training course.
