Acuma names new UAE head
Dubai, December 10, 2013
Acuma, a Dubai-based wealth management company, has appointed Noel O’Leary as the head of its UAE business.
O’Leary will be based in Acuma’s head office in Dubai to head-up the firm’s regional presence and will report to Nigel Green, deVere Group’s founder and chief executive.
DeVere Group is a leading independent financial advisory organisation, which acquired Acuma from IP Global, a real estate investment firm, in July. The two brands operate as separate entitites.
On the appointment, Green said: “Noel was deVere’s top performing manager in Switzerland and he has joined Acuma to take advantage of the new opportunities that the acquisition has presented.
“I am confident that with his energy, vision and leadership pedigree he will become one of the chief architects of Acuma’s next stage of development, growth and impact."
Before joining deVere Group in 2008, Noel O’Leary was associate director at KBC Bank Ireland. - TradeArabia News Service
