Azizi Developments has named new directors.

UAE real estate developer Azizi Developments assigned two non-executive directors, Dr Bettina Eisenaecher and Jurgen Fischer – the latter of whom has work experience with Hilton, Walt Disney Resorts, Dubai Properties, and Orascom  to “drive corporate governance standards and create long-term value" at the company, with chief executive officer, Farhad Azizi, stating he was hopeful that their engineering inputs would drive growth at the firm.

Eisenaecher is currently managing director and owner of German consulting Be Reporting, and holds a PhD in asset-backed securities. 

Fischer’s experience includes serving as non-executive chairman of Mövenpick Hotels and Resorts, president at Hilton International, and vice president at Walt Disney Resorts, in addition to senior positions in Dubai Properties and Tatweer.

A graduate of Ecole Hôtelière Lausanne in Switzerland, Fischer has an MBA with honors from IMD Imede, and sits on the board of Egyptian giant Orascom Development Holding as well. 

Commenting on the appointments, Azizi said: “Appointing two industry experts of the highest calibre in corporate governance reporting and supervision, as well as global investment and financial management, adds substantial value to our organisation.”
