Manama, January 22, 2012
Bahrain’s leading waterfront real estate development, Bahrain Bay, has appointed a new CEO to lead the management and development team through the next phase of the project’s progress.
Robert Lee joins Bahrain Bay with 25 years of real estate investment experience including development, investment, sales and marketing, asset management, and advisory, said a statement.
His portfolio of past projects includes green-field city planning, large-scale mixed-use development, institutional/infrastructure, leisure and hospitality, and retail and entertainment, the statement said.
Lee has held senior executive positions at leading real estate companies in the Middle East including Emaar, Al Futtaim, and Nakheel, where he was instrumental in some of the most iconic projects including Dubai Marina and Palm Jumeirah.
Abdulla Al Doseri, deputy CEO, Bahrain Bay, said: “With four third party developers already on site, and more due in 2012, Lee’s expertise will be invaluable to the ongoing success of the development.”
Lee replaces former CEO Bob Vincent, who will continue to work closely with the development in his new role with Four Seasons Hotel Bahrain Bay, the statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
