Designation: Managing director
As managing director of MVL, Abie Musa has made significant waves during recent years. Based in the UAE, the defence contractor conducts most of its work in Afghanistan on behalf of clients such as the US Department of Defense and the Afghan Ministry of Interior Affairs. While it’s not the largest player in the market, MVL succeeded in making the jump from materials and logistics provider to prime contractor by scooping two major awards – a set of brigade garrisons and the National Police Command Center in Afghanistan – within the space of a fortnight. Earlier in 2015, the firm also won the contract for phase three of the Afghan Defense University.
