UAE Etisalat under goes management shake-up
UAE’s telecom flagship Etisalat is undergoing a major shake-up for its senior management team, including the departure of the company’s chairman Mohamed Omran.
If confirmed, the departure of Mohammed Omran will be a significant change for Etisalat. Omran, who joined Etisalat in 1977, became chairman in 2005 and successfully oversaw the company's transformation from UAE incumbent to an international operator with a footprint in 18 countries in the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
The company also plans to create a new group CEO role, and Etisalat’s current group Chief Operating Officer, Ahmed Julfar is tipped to be the main contender for the position.
