Sheikh Ahmed will replace Abdulla Al Habbai

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has appointed Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum to temporarily manage the operations of Dubai Holding and Meraas.

Sheikh Ahmed – currently the chairman and CEO of Emirates Group and chairman of Dubai World – will replace Abdulla Al Habbai, a statement said.

The move is to explore expansion prospects for both groups, maximise growth by leveraging their asset and investment profiles, and further consolidate their brand profiles regionally and globally.

Dubai Holding has been pivotal in Dubai’s diversification agenda, with its operations and investments stretching across 10 countries.

Jumeirah Group, TECOM Group, Dubai Properties, Dubai Asset Management, Arab Media Group, and Dubai Retail are a few of its subsidiary companies, the statement said.
