Roman Piotrowski Founder and Head of Development After hanging on for as long as he could to the dream of a career in professional Rugby, the birth of his first daughter in 2008 gave him the kickstart he needed to begin his journey into the world of property. With commitment, passion and most of all tenacity at the heart of his success on the Rugby Pitch he turned these attributes to his new path into the world of property. After having early successes on a few small developments in the midlands during his Rugby career it was actually property maintenance where the journey started and where Empire was born. Maintenance turned to construction, construction turned to Design and Build and then on to development. The rest is history.
