Summertown Interiors names Abu Dhabi GM
Dubai, November 9, 2008
Summertown Interiors, a corporate turnkey design and fit-out solution specialist, has appointed Mohammed Al Kailani as general manager for its Abu Dhabi division, Summertown International.
Abu Dhabi has recently come into play as a viable alternative to the bustle of neighbouring emirates. With its robust plan for expansion in the pipeline over the next decade, the thriving capital is fast emerging as a hub for corporations looking for more space, and long-term objectives to establish regional roots.
“Large businesses are looking to invest in the space they already occupy with 30-40 per cent turning to refurbishment and 60-65 per cent turning to a completely new fit-out. Space remains a major concern. The key is space optimisation, to emerge with an end solution that is both aesthetically pleasing and also fully-functional on a long-term basis,” Kailani added.
Kailani, who has more than 12 years experience living and working in the capital city, joined Summertown International in 2001 as a business development manager, and later became Abu Dhabi branch manager, prior to his recent new appointment as general manager.
He earned a Bachelor’s degree in Applied Arts-Interior Design from the College of Arts at Yarmouk University in Jordan. Kailani later continued his education, earning a Master’s degree in business administration from Lincoln University in the United Kingdom.
In his new role as general manager of Summertown International, Kailani will utilise his knowledge of interior design together with his sales and marketing experience to provide clients with comprehensive interior fit-out solutions.
“Mohammed is a great asset to the Summertown family, his expert knowledge in the Abu Dhabi corporate fit-out market is unparalleled, and we are confident of his new role,” said Marcos Bish, general director, Summertown Interiors.-TradeArabia News Service
