AlFahim names general manager for property unit

ABU DHABI, November 20, 2017

Emirates Property Investment Company (Epico), a unit of UAE-based industrial group AlFahim, has appointed Jason Gibb, an industry veteran in the region, as its new general manager.

With more than 13 years of real estate experience in Canada and the UAE, Gibb will oversee all operations for business development, leasing and facilities management across an extensive portfolio of residential, commercial, industrial and retail properties as well as land for development, said the company in a statement.

He joins Epico at a time when AlFahim is taking a different direction that involves entering new markets and communities in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and the Western Region.

Founded in 1979, Epico manages a spectrum of residential projects, shopping malls, world-class hotels and impressive office towers. Its scope of operation includes property investment and development, design and construction, management, leasing and associated activities.

Welcoming Gibb into the fold, Chairman Ahmed AJ Al Fahim said: "He brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the role and, more importantly, understands the dynamic landscape of this region."

"We are confident that he will add great value to the group at this critical time of change and reinforce our leadership strength in the property business at AlFahim," he added.

One of the UAE’s most successful family businesses, AlFahim has played an intrinsic role in the development of the country’s progressive economy.

Epico owns and manages some of the most prestigious residential, commercial and hospitality venues in the UAE and is strongly committed to constant innovation and growth.

The property investment company’s aims are in line with the new strategy of AlFahim with four primary divisions: facility management, leasing, business development and customer relationship management.

The newest developments taken on by Epico include the leasing of the AlFahim’s Airport Road showroom extension in Abu Dhabi and an entire residential building consisting of fifty-four units in Dubai.

On his new role, Gibb said he was delighted at joining AlFahim at such an exciting time within the UAE’s real estate sector.

"As a market leader, it is essential that we embrace change to overcome challenges while delivering value added service to tenants and value creation for stakeholders," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
