Tell us a little bit about yourself and your professional background.
I started my career in 2008 as an auditor in a Chartered Accountant firm back in Lahore and eight years ago when I came to Dubai, I worked for a business advisory firm. Later on, I moved to the real estate sector. Apart from that, a nice wristwatch will always attract me! I love watches from the time I was a kid and still have my father's watches from his younger days.
What made you decide on joining the Real Estate industry?
I belong to a family who has their investments in Real Estate and I am no different. I helped to set up a real estate brokerage while I was working in a consulting firm in Dubai and later on joined a famous real estate brokerage where my family background and interest synergized each other.
Why Engel & Völkers?
While working in the real estate brokerage, I found it more interesting than auditing and decided to progress in this line of business. E&V is a platform where you really get a chance to work closely with the board and your inputs are acknowledged when it comes to strategy formulation and designing standard operational procedures. To me, it is one of the most important factors when it comes to job satisfaction.
What is your favorite moment in Engel & Völkers?
The board entrusted me as the acting authorised person while we had a transition of the senior management position last year. Once again it proved to me that good employers always value their loyal employees who give a helping hand in difficult times.
What is that one piece of advice you would give to your colleagues during the current times?
Ups and downs are part of our life and change is the only constant. Difficult times not only bring challenges but also hidden opportunities that can change our lives, go find those opportunities and you will be a star.
