"It is better to lead from behind and put others in the front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership"

Nelson Mandela

Management Team

Porush Jhunjhunwala – Director, Banke International

Drawn by its excellent lifestyle, life/work balance, and proximity to his native India, Porush moved to Dubai in 2006. Almost a decade later, Porush, his wife and their two children still thoroughly enjoy living in the emirate, referring to it fondly as ‘home’.

Prior to leaving India, Porush worked as a branch manager for an electronics retailer, and moved to the UAE to take up a regional management role within the company. He soon branched out into real estate and spent the next six years as Head of Commercial at one of the UAE’s biggest real estate companies.

In his spare time Porush likes run and already has a marathon under his belt. However, once an entrepreneur, always an entrepreneur, and Porush admits to spending a degree of his spare time exploring personal investment opportunities and reading motivational books such as the best-selling ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’ by Robert Kiyosaki.

An outgoing individual who loves to meet new people, Porush has a natural aptitude for real estate courtesy of his passion for sales and closing transactions. He also excels in team management and positive leadership – traits which serve him very well as one of the founders of Banke International.
