Abu Dhabi’s National Central Cooling Company, known as Tabreed, has Bader Saeed Al Lamki as its new CEO.

Taking up the role on Sunday next (April 21), Al Lamki joins from Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company, better known as Masdar, where he was the executive director of the Clean Energy Directorate.

At Masdar, Al Lamki helped build the company’s renewable energy portfolio across 25 countries, leading on a number of its most iconic projects. He was also responsible for maximising value from Masdar’s utility-scale renewable energy portfolio globally.

Khaled Al Qubaisi, chairman of Tabreed, said, ”His vast expertise makes him the ideal successor to steer the company during the next stage of its growth strategy and further drive its operating and financial performance. His considerable industry knowledge will be invaluable to us as we continue our expansion and seek to further efficiency gains and achieve our full growth potential.”

Al Lamki succeeds Jasim Husain Thabet, who joined as the first Emirati CEO of Tabreed in August 2012. During his six-year tenure, the company’s annual net income grew from approximately AED 202.3 million to AED 427.6 million.
