Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company (Du) has appointed Fahad Al Hassawi as its new CEO after he has been serving in an acting capacity since last September.
With a career spanning over two decades, Al Hassawi has held several leadership positions in Dubai’s Emirates Airlines and Du. Al Hassawi was the acting CEO following the departure of Johan Dennelind last year.
Speaking about the appointment, Mohammad Hadi Al Hussaini, Chairman, Emirates Integrated Telecommunication Company said: “The EITC board has envisaged an ambitious transformational mandate from the inside-out, directed at driving a purpose and performance-driven culture, a faster go-to-market approach, and a deeper and more personalized customer experience. To realize these ambitions, Al Hassawi has been appointed to lead EITC into the next phase of growth and expansion. I’m confident that he will build on the momentum that EITC has embarked on and usher in a new accelerated phase of transformation.”
