Former Emaar group chief executive will take over following Abdullatif AlMulla’s resignation
Dubai Properties Group has appointed Abdulla Lahej, the former Emaar Properties executive, as CEO of the group, following Abdullatif AlMulla’s resignation in late June 2016.
In a statement to Reuters, Dubai Properties Group said that it “can confirm that Abullatif AlMulla will be leaving to pursue new ventures.”
The statement added that the former group chief executive at Emaar has been appointed to replace AlMulla.
Lahej left Emaar in April 2015, according to a statement from the developer at the time.
AlMulla joined the Dubai Properties Group in August 2015. He was previously the chief executive of the TECOM Group, another unit of Dubai Holding, which also owns Dubai Properties Group. Dubai Holding itself is the investment vehicle owned by Dubai’s ruler, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
Earlier this year, Dubai Properties launched the sale of its Bellevue Towers development, which is situated close to the Burj Khalifa. The project, due for completion in 2019, will comprise two towers, each with 23 floors, and a total of 300 units.
