He will have complete oversight of the Firm's brokerage operations across the Middle East & North African countries.
ANAROCK Property Consultants has announced that sales & marketing veteran Shajai Jacob, previously Executive Director & Head - Marketing (West Asia) at international property consultancy JLL India, has been appointed as Chief Executive Officer - GCC (Middle East). He will be based out of ANAROCK's Dubai office and will have complete oversight of the Firm's brokerage operations across the Middle East & North African countries.
Anuj Puri, Chairman, ANAROCK Property Consultants, said, "We are excited to have Shajai on board to spearhead our rapidly growing Middle Eastern business. Shajai is perfectly aligned with our vision of becoming the most preferred, one-stop, technology-powered residential real estate services firm in the GCC region. He will expand our presence beyond our existing Dubai operations with 4 new offices in Oman, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait over the next 3 quarters. Having worked closely with him for nearly a decade, I have complete confidence in Shajai's ability to implement our ambitious plans for the Middle East."
Shajai Jacob stated, "I am delighted to join Indian real estate's dream team under Anuj Puri and other leading industry stalwarts. Growing ANAROCK's operations in the Middle East for both Indian and international properties is an exciting opportunity. While Dubai itself contributes 60% of the overall sales of Indian properties across the GCC region, this is only the tip of the iceberg. The GCC region will be a major focus area for the Firm in terms of business growth going forward. We are adopting a 50:50 approach of business focus aligned to India as well as the key Middle Eastern countries."
