Asian proptech giant, Juwai IQI, has announced a successful onboarding program where it was able to recruit top talent, including appointing senior executives from other fields and hiring some 4,000 real estate agents since January 2021. This new hiring spree brings the total number of global agents under the Juwai IQI brand to 18,500.
Juwai IQI Group Co-Founder and CEO Kashif Ansari said:
“Because of our rapid growth and good property market conditions in many countries, potential agents are flooding our recruiting events to find out more. The real estate industry offers an attractive opportunity to both young and experienced professionals from almost any field. Most people who join us like to feel a direct connection between effort and results, which can be difficult to find in other industries.
“With our rapid recruiting and expansion this year, our global agent force now numbers 18,500, up from 15,000 in 2020.”
One of the bigger names hired during this period was Syed Ahmed. Ahmed joins Juwai IQI as the new Vice President of Investment Management. Ahmed has deep experience in corporate multinational marketing and strategy. He has garnered relationships with many high-net-worth individuals in the Middle East and Asia and brings with him over 20 years of senior leadership experience from brands like Nissan Motor Corporation and Mitsubishi.
Syed Ahmed said:
"There is common ground between real estate and the automotive world. Both fields enable people to realize their dreams via one of the most important investments they will make in their lifetimes. Real estate goes one step further by also offering the opportunity to create new wealth through wise investment.
"In the real estate industry, I see a certain amount of entrepreneurial freedom that isn't available in the large corporate sector. I look forward to contributing my small part to Juwai IQI’s growth in the years to come.”
