POLAND Maciej Dyjas – nominee for the Real Estate Personality of the Year

Eurobuild Awards
Each year Eurobuild has the privilege to pick out a select few who have stood out from other players on the real estate market and nominate them for the Personality of the Year in Commercial Real Estate Award. So who are this year’s candidates, what’s their recipe for success and what has paved their way on the road to the summit?

For the first of this year’s nominees we take a look at a man who has for many years both intrigued us and commanded our respect. Few people have done as much on the investment market as Maciej Dyjas, a managing partner of both Griffin Real Estate and Cornerstone Partners. We’ve nominated him for the unprecedented rapid growth of Griffin Real Estate, which has turned itself into a major player by taking over and strengthening a whole series of companies and real estate platforms. The strength of Griffin’s results are well known to everyone, but few may have an insight into any of the characteristics our nominee believes has helped him in business. In answer to this question, he insists that for sure it is his ability to concentrate on what is important but also to set long-term goals and realise them despite changing conditions.

As a reminder, the winner in this category will be chosen by those present at the Eurobuild Gala. Prior to that the entire Eurobuild jury will select three of the seven nominees to go into the final vote.
