Mohammed Jameel Al Ramahi has been appointed chief executive of Abu Dhabi renewable energy firm Masdar.
Al Ramahi replaces Ahmad Belhoul, who was appointed Minister of State for Higher Education in the recent UAE government reshuffle.
The new CEO joined Masdar in 2008 as head of internal audit compliance, before being promoted to chief financial officer and then chief operating officer.
“Investing in human capital and developing young leadership has always been a priority for Masdar,” Masdar chairman Sultan Al Jaber said, in a press statement.
“Assuming the role of CEO, Mohamed Al Ramahi has Masdar firmly embedded in his DNA. His deep personal attachment to the values and objectives of Masdar, together with his experience and technical abilities as a business leader, will be an immense asset to the company as it charts its future expansion, at home, in the region and overseas.”For all the latest energy and oil news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
