Company: Aldar Properties
Designation: Chief development officer
Gurjit Singh, Aldar Properties’ former chief development officer, announced his departure from the company during the first quarter of 2015. He certainly left some large shoes to fill, but fortunately, it seems that his successor, Talal Al Dhiyebi, is the right fit.
Under Al Dhiyebi’s leadership, Aldar’s flagship asset, Yas Mall, has been fully leased, and now offers Abu Dhabi shoppers more than 370 international brands and 60 indoor and outdoor food-and-beverage outlets.
Speaking to Construction Week about Aldar’s future business, Al Dhiyebi said: “We have an exciting pipeline of real estate developments that are testament to our ability to deliver on our strategy of monetising our land bank, growing our recurring revenues, and delivering value for all of our shareholders. We recently announced the launch of three new developments at Cityscape Abu Dhabi 2015, bringing around 2,000 residential units to the Abu Dhabi market.”
