LMRE is expanding to the Middle East


LMRE Expands to Middle East and Opens Office in Dubai, Appoints Vishal Bhatia as Regional Director. 

[London, 17 July 2023] – LMRE, the leading Global Recruitment and Search Consultancy in the Built Environment, is thrilled to announce its expansion into the Middle East region with the opening of a new office in Dubai. The company’s move to establish a local presence comes in response to the growing demand and numerous opportunities in the Middle East’s dynamic PropTech community. 

The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region has emerged as one of the most promising markets for PropTech, ConTech, ClimateTech, and Smart Tech worldwide. With significant investments and ongoing developments in the region, we eagerly anticipate the transformative technologies that will drive growth in its real estate and construction sectors. While we have been providing remote support to several key clients, we believe that now is the ideal moment to establish our local presence and further cultivate our strategic partnerships with leading Real Estate Technology and Innovators in the MENA region. 

Leading the Middle East expansion, as Regional Director, will be Vishal Bhatia, a seasoned professional with over 15 years of experience in the property industry. He has held senior-level positions at several housing developers in the UK and over the past few years has consulted many global real estate businesses by helping them embrace innovation and digitalisation. Vishal’s appointment reflects LMRE’s commitment to appointing top talent to spearhead its expansion into new markets.  

“The Middle East market presents great opportunity for LMRE and I am honoured to bring our global expertise to the region,” explained Vishal Bhatia, Regional Director, LMRE. “With the PropTech industry set to grow by over $60 billion over the next 10 years, momentum in the Middle East has grown from strength to strength and there has never been a better time to enter the market. Our leading team brings a depth of knowledge and understanding that will enable us to provide the best talent into the rapidly expanding Real Estate Technology space.” 

“We are delighted to announce the launch of Dubai office and very much looking forward to delivering world class search and talent management solutions in the region. This exciting next step has been driven by the needs and requirement of our existing clients looking to scale teams and by the sheer scale and pace of growth in the region. We are also delighted to welcome Vishal to the business as Regional Director, who we have known on a personal and professional level for a long time and have actually placed in the past”, said Richard Lloyd, Co-founder of LMRE. 

LMRE’s expansion into the Middle East represents a significant milestone in the company’s quest to become the premier global specialist Talent Management brand. With its established expertise and commitment to delivering unparalleled service, LMRE is poised to make a profound impact on the Middle East’s built environment ecosystem.
