Founder Kaung Thu Win remains a vital part of the leadership team as co-director.

Goos was headhunted from Century 21 in Cambodia, where he was CEO, and oversaw the establishment of the country’s most respected residential and commercial real estate business, securing property-related contracts worth more than $120 million U.S. along the way.

Goos has a masters in management from Bangkok University, and a bachelor’s degree in business administration and management from the University of Montana.

ShweProperty also announced that it will launch a new Real Estate University, in a bid to infuse professionalism in Myanmar’s emerging, real estate market.
