Talal Moafaq Al Gaddah

Company: MAG Lifestyle Development

Designation: CEO

The success of Talal Moafaq Al Gaddah, CEO of MAG Lifestyle Development (MAG LD) – the property development arm of MAG Group Holding – is based on his intuitive understanding of the strategic elements that underlie Dubai’s ongoing renaissance. These include the ambition of Dubai’s leadership in employing the latest technology, applications and smart solutions to encourage the rise of world renowned brands such as Emirates Airline, DP World and Dubai International Airport, and the growth of sectors such as hospitality, medical tourism and urban movement, to name just a few.

With a continuous focus on quality and excellence, Al Gaddah has helped MAG LD to take a leading position among its competitors and contribute to transforming the UAE’s real estate landscape by introducing innovative real estate concepts and identifying market needs.

To put it very simply, I call myself a developer when I hand over the keys”

As CEO, Al Gaddah drives the company’s direction and strategy while also guiding six departments: finance, project management, sales, marketing, real estate development and legal. Under his stewardship, MAG LD became one of the first companies to address the need for contemporary housing by forming its MAG 5 PD division. The company also established a “MAG of Life” division for wellness homes and set a new precedent in the sector by launching the first wellness-inspired project in the region.

Prior to his role as CEO, Al Gaddah served as the partner and director of sales and marketing at Invest Group Overseas – another property development arm of MAG Group Holding. There, he played an instrumental role in growing the company’s portfolio and profits, and opening up new markets including the successful launch of The Gate in Frisco City, Texas, US – a project that was managed by Al Gaddah in its entirety.

Al Gaddah’s ambitious aspirations for MAG LD are underpinned by his wider endeavour to fuel the UAE’s real estate market and economy with a new wave of investors from both inside and outside of the country – a feat he has achieved by attracting customers with developments that carefully meet their needs and convert their dreams into reality.

Al Gaddah is highly regarded for his leadership skills and sound judgement, which have supported MAG LD’s upward trajectory and positioned it as a developer of choice in the UAE. As a leader in the real estate sector, Al Gaddah has also firmly cemented MAG LD’s position as one of the most respected and awarded real estate developers in the region.

Al Gaddah holds a bachelor’s degree in business and also gained leadership in communication strategy skills at UCLA in California. Al Gaddah also cites the influence of his father, Moafaq Ahmad Al Gaddah, who paved the way for him to enter the professional world with confidence.
