1.45: What do you love most about your job?


I like being involved in the wider business management and strategy of Emrill. Part of that means I get to meet a wide variety of our stakeholders including our employees on site, our customers, suppliers and bankers. We hold an array of events across the company for our 6,000 employees including our reward and recognition schemes.


2.05: What is the most challenging aspect of your job?

The FM industry is a challenging sector with constant economic and market changes, evolving client requirements and aggressive competitors pushing on a cost leadership model. At Emrill, we are always striving to enhance and deliver service excellence through innovation and high quality service that are value for money to maintain our position as market leader.


3.00: What has been your most memorable project and why?

I have recently secured funding for Emrill’s newly acquired energy clients. We facilitated the financing and provision of innovative energy saving services to increase efficiencies and lower operating costs for our clients. We are in a strong position at Emrill to significantly contribute to the UAE’s sustainability objectives and pass on valued savings to our clients.

I see the FM industry as much more technology driven and advanced in the future with more efficient operational solutions and enhanced quality services for clients and end users. In addition, a more mature FM market would mean advanced asset management leading to more innovative custom solutions to meet the needs of the market. Expo 2020 will also have a positive effect in pushing this maturity along.

I enjoy a healthy social life and like to unwind from work and experience the wonderful beaches, spas and restaurants, which Dubai has to offer.
