Emirates announces key management changes across the Middle East

Posted 1 June 2017 · Add Comment

Emirates has made three key management movements within its commercial and cargo operations team in the Middle East.

Thierry Antinori, executive vice president and chief commercial officer said: “The Middle East’s market dynamics continually present us with unique challenges and opportunities. All three UAE Nationals who will be taking on new roles have a deep understanding of the business and operations at Emirates, from both the passenger and cargo side. We believe that this will strengthen our leadership team and will deliver significant benefits to maximise our commercial performance in the region.”

In the UAE, Emirates has appointed Abbas A Haji as vice president hub operations for SkyCargo. In his new role, Haji will be managing Emirates SkyCargo’s hub operations in Dubai at both Al Maktoum International Airport and Dubai International Airport. Abbas joined the Emirates Group in 1977, working for dnata Cargo. He has held several positions across the group since then and previously held the role of Vice President Iran, Iraq and Central Asia, running the airline’s commercial operations activities in multiple markets.

Mohamed Khoory will be taking on the role as Manager Iran. Mohamed joined Emirates in 2011 as part of the UAE National Management Programme for Commercial Operations. He held commercial support roles in India and the United States before taking on the role as District Manager in Dammam, KSA. More recently, he held the role of Manager Jordan and West Bank, heading the market’s commercial and business development activities.

In Jordan, Emirates has appointed Sultan Alriyami to drive its commercial priorities in the market as well as build on the airline’s business performance as Manager Jordan and West Bank. Sultan joined Emirates in 2014 as part of the UAE National Trainee Management Programme for Commercial Operations. Since then, he has held commercial support roles in Singapore, and more recently in Iran.
