Leading Kenyan real estate firm, Optiven Group is now expanding its trophies’ cabinet after winning two outstanding awards in the latest Top 100 Mid-Sized Companies Survey by KPMG and Nation Media Group – One,on its Outstanding Innovation and a second,on its exceptional Human Resource Practices. The firm whose flagship product is value added plots specially designed for immediate residential settlement, commercial purposes and futuristic capital gain, is surely on the roll.
“We are extremely happy to have our innovation and human resource practices recognized as preeminent across the industries. This is indeed an affirmation that we are the indomitable pacesetters on the pillars that matter most in any organization, the personnel and novelty,” said Mr. George Wachiuri, Optiven Group CEO.
Mr. Wachiuri notes that all Optiven products have a differentiated mark of distinctiveness, which is a plus to Kenyans looking into the best place to settle for their homes. “On the other hand, we believe that a great vision without a great people is futile. We have been consistently seeking to not only recruit but grow talents. We are already envisioning becoming one of the leading job creators in Kenya and Africa. We project to have over 30, 000 employees by the year 2030,” said Mr. Wachiuri.

“The first time to emerge number one on Top 100 was one of the most inspiring moments for Optiven Group. Being at the helm of some of the most respected brands in the region further fired our company’s zeal to offer the best services and solutions that anyone can ever offer both regionally and beyond Africa,” saidMr. Wachiuri.
Nonetheless it is the year 2017 that has been especially remarkable for this real estate firm that also banged SuperBrands recognition by emerged Number One Real Estate Firm in Land Selling and Number Four in the general (inclusive of homes) real estate industries in the SuperBrand East Africa 2017/2018.
