Abu Dhabi Airports has appointed H.E. Jamal Salem Al Dhaheri as Chief Executive Officer. A seasoned business leader, Al Dhaheri’s appointment will continue the journey of success achieved by Shareef Hashim Al Hashmi for Abu Dhabi Airports, taking the organisation to the next phase of transformation to become a regional leader in airport management and operations

Al Dhaheri brings more than 27 years of experience in leadership positions across several prominent companies in Abu Dhabi. For five years, Al Dhaheri was the Chief Executive Officer of General Holding Corporation (Senaat), before ending his tenure in 2020 to lead ADQ’s newly formed food and agri-tech company Silal, also as Chief Executive Officer.

In support of its vision to deliver world-class transport, logistics and freezone services through cutting-edge infrastructure, Al Dhaheri will oversee Abu Dhabi Airports’ ambitious air cargo masterplan to invest in the facilities and infrastructure at Abu Dhabi International Airport to ensure enhanced safety and efficiency of all airport and aircraft operations and processes.

The next-generation Midfield Terminal will increase capacity for passenger traffic and air cargo shipments that are vital to the airport’s future growth, and this will be one of the major elements in Al Dhaheri’s mandate.

Abu Dhabi Airports extends their utmost appreciation to Shareef Hashim Al Hashmi, for the fundamental role he played in reinforcing Abu Dhabi’s position as a leading aviation and logistics hub in the region, as well as promoting it as one of the world’s great destinations.
