Prior to joining ENBD Asset Management, Melanie managed the property portfolio of Emirates NBD Properties that comprised units in iconic buildings such as Index Tower (DIFC), Limestone House (DIFC) as well as residential, commercial and retail units in Dubai Motor City.

Ben Coombe will hand over the position to Fernandes after nearly ten years with the team, commenting: “It was a hard decision to leave ENBD REIT after nearly ten years with the team, however, I wish the business all the success in the years ahead and look forward to watching as it continues to grow from strength to strength.”

Anthony Taylor, head of real estate at Emirates NBD Asset Management, added: “Ben has been an immensely valuable member of the ENBD REIT team, and we are sorry to see him leave.

“However, we wish him and his family the very best as he relocates to his home country of New Zealand and thank him for his exceptional contribution to our business over the years.

“ENBD REIT will continue business as usual, having effectively planned for succession well in advance of Ben’s departure. On this note, we congratulate Melanie on her promotion and wish her success as she continues to build on the strong foundation laid down by Ben.”
