CPI Property Group is to benefit from a major reinforcement following the appointment of Barbara Topolska, previously of Multi Corporation. Barbara has spent more than 20 years serving in various managerial positions with several international developers and asset management companies. At CPI Property Group, Barbara will assume the position of Country Manager and with it the responsibility for managing the retail, office and hotel portfolio in Poland.
“We are reminded time and time again that investing in human capital translates into a decisive competitive advantage. I am therefore extremely delighted that it is Barbara who is joining our Polish team,” said Tomáš Salajka, Director of Acquisitions, Asset Management and Sales at CPI Property Group. “I have no doubt that Barbara's managerial experience accumulated in several international companies over more than two decades will prove a great boost not only to our business activities in Poland but to the whole of CPIPG,” added Tomáš Salajka.
“I have kept an eye on the remarkable story of the CPI Property Group for some time already. I can hardly wait for the day when I become a part of things and begin writing a new chapter with the Group's team,” said Barbara Topolska.
Prior to joining CPI Property Group, Barbara worked as Multi Corporation's Managing Director for Central and Eastern Europe, bearing responsibility for no less than seven different markets. Before joining Multi Corporation, Barbara spent more than 13 years developing and managing a 580,000 m² real estate portfolio worth €2 billion for Neinver. Her professional efforts have been recognised with several prestigious titles including “Professional of the Year” bestowed at the CEE Retail Awards.
