Arabtec in the UAE wants to turn the tide of turbulence that was off late part of its boardroom scenario with the appointment of a new chairman. The appointment will pave way for a new image and new focus for the company. And who better to realise this plan than Mohammad Thani Murshed Ghannam Al Rumaithi. With the new appointment comes the news of the exit of two key positions - Khadem Abdullah Al Qubaisi, ex-Chairman and Riad Kamal, a doyen of the region´s construction industry and founder of Arabtec. In an attempt to get Arabtec out of the boardroom struggles that were being witnessed since the past 15 months or more, Al Rumaithi´s appointment comes as a breath of fresh air. Al Rumaithi, who currently heads the Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce and Industry, is also extremely well-connected within the industry.
