Zurich, 24 May 2018 - The present CEO of homegate.ch, Axel Konjack, is handing over the management of the leading Swiss property platform in October and will be moving to Ringier as COO International Marketplaces.
Axel Konjack joined homegate.ch in 2015. Previously, he was the Managing Director of the city portal hamburg.de, in which Axel Springer has a majority holding.
