Nakheel names MD for infrastructure project unit

DUBAI, December 15, 2019

Dubai-based master developer Nakheel said it has appointed Shatha Saif Al Suwaidi as the new managing director for its infrastructure project construction unit.

Al Suwaidi is leading the delivery of all infrastructure work at Nakheel’s master communities across Dubai, which currently span 15,000 hectares and provide homes for 300,000 people.

Armed with a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Sharjah and a master’s degree in Urban Planning from the American University of Sharjah, Al Suwaidi started her career at the Directorate of Public Works in Sharjah before joining Nakheel in 2007.

Since then, she has successfully completed infrastructure projects covering roads, bridges, power substations and utilities at Palm Jumeirah, Deira Islands, International City and Jumeirah Village.

Al Suwaidi's current focus is the delivery of key projects at Deira Islands, including the main access bridge, as well as the access bridge to Al Khail Avenue mall at Jumeirah Village Triangle and other projects at Al Furjan, Warsan Village, Palm Jumeirah, International City and Madinat Al Arab.

Nakheel said her appointment comes as part of its commitment to the development of young, talented UAE nationals into senior positions within the organisation. The developer employs a growing team of Emirati men and women who continue to prove their ability to deliver, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
