Yahya Jan

VP, NORR International
Steven Miller
Issa Al Mohannadi

Yahya Jan, Vice President of NORR International, is a graduate of the Princeton University and started his career in the Middle East by working at the design division of this company 17 years ago.

His promotion to director of the company followed many projects including the Emirate Towers and the Shangri-La Hotel, both prominent structures in the ever developing Dubai skyline.

Although Jan is now primarily involved in the business development of the company, he continues to remain active in the design process of NORR’s projects given his deep passion for design. He is also a regular speaker at universities in the region and makes time to share his experiences and offer advice to young architects.

His outlook for the future of Middle East architecture and construction development in the UAE remains positive, as he feels that the region has ample room for architects to exercise creativity in designing buildings.

“Societies in the Middle East, especially the Gulf States, are changing. People here are recognising that with success comes the opportunity to change some of the traditional ways things are done,” he said.
