Al Mutawa was previously director of operations at the authority

The Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) has elevated Yousef Al Mutawa to chief executive of its $544m mixed-use Sharjah Sustainable City project.

Commenting on the appointment, executive chairman Marwan bin Jassim Al Sarkal said the move reflected the authority’s vision of investing in young leaders, and enables them to play a role in driving the development of the emirate and the UAE.

He pointed out that as per Shurooq’s expansion strategy to develop more tourism, real estate and commercial projects, there was a need to nurture employee skills, create more jobs and offer the younger generation opportunities to thrive in leadership roles.

Al Sarkal remarked that Al Mutawa’s expertise would be a valuable asset to the authority in developing Sharjah Sustainability City, and providing the best services to investors and potential buyers.

“Taking a leading role in Shurooq, one of the key drivers of economic and investment growth in Sharjah, is an exceptional opportunity to take part in the development of the economic sector in the emirate, as well as enrich my career,” said Al Mutawa.

Sharjah Sustainable City was launched in March 2019 by HH Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah. Once complete, the project will occupy 7.2m sqft and is expected to be the emirate’s first net zero energy community.
