Georg Funke

CEO
Hypo Real Estate Bank International (Dublin) and of Hypo Real Estate Holding AG (Germany)

Georg has worked his way steadily through the real estate business over the past 30 years. He began his career in 1972 with Westdeutsche Wohnhauser AG, Essen (now, Thyssen Wohnstatten AG) after which, in 1984, he moved to the former Bayerische Hypotheken- und Wechsel Bank. There he was made general manager for the real estate business in the state of Nordrhein Westfalia. In 1989 he became general manager for the real estate business in Great Britain. Since January 2000 he has been on the divisional board of HypoVereinsbank AG (HVB) responsible for the international real estate business. Additionally, in 2001 he joined the board of HVB Real Estate Bank AG, Germany - now, Hypo Real Estate Bank AG - and was made Chairman of the Board. Following the decision by the HVB Group to undertake a spin-off of their commercial real estate finance activities into a separate, independent company, Georg took over responsibility for the spin-off and became CEO of the spin-off entity, Hypo Real Estate Holding AG. At the same time he resigned his position with Hypo Real Estate Bank AG, Germany and took over as CEO of Hypo Real Estate Bank International in Dublin. On October 6th 2003 the new Hypo Real Estate Group was successfully listed on the Frankfurt and Vienna stock exchanges and is one of Europe's leading providers of commercial real estate finance.
