In 2007, he started working for Wiesbaden-based Commerz Grundbesitz Gruppe (now Commerz Real), where he set up and managed the real estate research department until 2019.
Dr Klaus Wolf, chief investment officer at KGAL said: 'Axel Drwenski is a highly qualified specialist who is well known for his lectures and professional articles, and we are very pleased that he is joining our company.
'He will use fundamental analyses to derive independent strategic recommendations that will make a significant contribution to further developing our portfolio strategy.'
Drwenski holds additional qualifications in real estate management (EBS) and projection modelling. As a lecturer at the European Business School in Oestrich Winkel and RheinMain University of Applied Sciences in Wiesbaden, he contributes to education and training in the real estate sector.
