Founder and CEO, Honorary Consul of Sweden
Agence Immobilier Cannes - Johan Wretman
What is your role in the real estate agency Wretman Estate?

I am the founder and managing director together with my brother Filip. My role is of course to develop the company as much as we can, especially when it comes to strategy and marketing. But I am not only the president, I also work as a real estate agent on the French Riviera as much as I can.

Tell us something people don’t know about you!

I am actually a certified airplane pilot, I think very few people know that. I am also the Honorary Consul of Sweden in Nice, an honorary assignment which means that I represent Sweden in the region.

For how long have you been living in the south of France?

My parents moved here when I was two years old, so I grew up in Mougins and have basically lived here all my life. But I have studied abroad for several years, for example when I took my degree in finance and economics at Handelshögskolan in Stockholm or when I studied in the US to become a pilot.

What do you enjoy doing on a day off ?

I love to play paddle with my wife or my friends and to spend time with my two children, preferably outdoors. If I have a longer period off I enjoy travelling, but I have a hard time to relax since my company is such as big part of my life…

Your favourite restaurant on the French Riviera ?

I have many but the two that come to my mind now are La Cave for traditional french cuisine, and Chez Astoux for seafood. Both of these are in Cannes.

The best ski resort in the Alpes-du-Sud?

I like Auron! I think the slopes are better than in Isola 2000 and the town is cosy and charming.
