POLAND Barbara Topolska – nominee for the Real Estate Personality of the Year

Eurobuild Awards
This year Barbara Topolska, the Poland country manager of CPI Property Group, has also been nominated for the award. We’ve nominated her for developing and implementing the growth strategy of CPI Property Group in Poland, one of the most active investors in the office market, with its own innovative approach to managing its property portfolio.

In October last year, the company announced it would invest EUR 800 mln in Poland at around the turn of the year, but many reacted to this news with disbelief. Soon afterwards we all looked on with admiration as several acquisitions went through and, as a result, the company is now the owner of the largest Warsaw office property portfolio in terms of gross leasable space.

This wide-ranging activity has gone in tandem with her approach to her work.

It's about seeing the market as a process while at the same time assessing the consequences of our actions, and being prepared for quick reversals in policy in response to ever changing circumstances, Of course, this requires an open mind, as well as flexibility and above all a willingness to face challenges.
Barbara Topolska

As usual, the audience will decide who will become the Personality of the Year. However, before that, the full jury will select three finalists – and their work will start this Monday, November 16th.
