CEO, MAG PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT

Talal Al Gaddah is CEO of MAG Property Development, responsible for overseeing the company’s overall direction and its organisational strategy. Heading the organisation’s six departments – finance, project management, sales, marketing, administration and legal – Talal’s leadership and management skills are driving MAG Property Development to new heights.

Talal’s aim is to cement MAG Property Development’s position as one of the top five real estate developers in the UAE, with the ultimate goal of expanding the company’s already considerable footprint to the Far East, Europe and further afield the USA.

Talal’s drive and enthusiasm is underpinned by his extensive background of industry success, much of it attained within the MAG Group. Prior to being appointed to his current role, he was Director of Sales and Marketing at Invest Group Overseas, the property development arm of MAG Group and the sister company for MAG Property Development. During his tenure, Talal achieved sales of AED 1.5 billion in 12 months through the company’s Polo Townhouses and The Polo Residences in Dubai, UAE. He was also instrumental in opening up new markets including successfully launching The Gate in Frisco City, Texas, USA. The entire Texas development was initiated by Talal and he was responsible for overseeing its every aspect from conception to completion. Talal’s dynamism in his role was enhanced by a year spent learning Leadership in Communication Strategy skills at the renowned UCLA in California, USA, where he was a student from 2011 to 2012. His studies enhanced the Bachelors’ degree in Business he was awarded in the Netherlands in 2007.
