The unit, which is 70 percent owned by Dubai Investments, is engaged in investments and development of real estate projects across the UAE.

Al Haji, a UAE national and former Deyaar executive, will be responsible for overseeing the management of all high-value assets of the unit as well as sales, leasing, acquisition, facilities management, property management and valuation functions, a statement said.
