Oxford Business Group names Gulf director
Dubai, March 25, 2013
Oxford Business Group (OBG), the global publishing, research and consultancy firm, has appointed Jana Treeck as its regional director for the Gulf.
In a move which marks a promotion, Treeck takes up her new post from Malaysia where she worked as OBG’s country director. Since joining the Group, she has been instrumental in helping OBG expand its operations across the Mena region and Asia, a statement said.
During her time in the Gulf, Treeck secured contributions from some of the region’s most prominent figures; including the Deputy Ruler of Dubai Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Sultan of Oman Qaboos bin Said Al Said and the Ruler of Ras al-Khaimah Sheikh Saud bin Saqr al Qasimi, the statement said.
She also played a pivotal role in facilitating interviews with international representatives, such as the Sultan of Brunei Hassanal Bolkiah, the Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-Moon and the Chairperson of the Commission of the African Union Jean Ping.
Treeck, who has a Masters Degree in English Literature and Information Science from Dusseldorf University, said: “Our publications have earned a reputation among investors as a valuable source of business intelligence on the developments taking place across the sectors of the Gulf economies.”
“I am delighted to be playing a part in steering the Group’s coverage of the GCC at a time when up to date and accurate information has become more important than ever for investors.”
OBG’s CEO Elizabeth Boissevain said: “Jana brings with her a wealth of knowledge about how business is done across a broad range of countries, including Oman, Dubai, Libya, Malaysia and Brunei.
“I am confident that her expertise and enthusiasm will give our coverage of the Gulf states a major boost as we shine the spotlight on their diversification efforts.”
OBG’s reports are produced following more than six months of on-the-ground research by a team of the Group’s analysts. The publications, which Treeck and the OBG teams will be preparing over the coming months, will include interviews with leading economic and business figures from both the local scene and international community. – TradeArabia News Service
