ALDAR Properties PJSC has announced the appointment of John Bullough as Chief Operating Officer (COO). Bullough is currently Retail Director of Grosvenor Britain & Ireland, one of the United Kingdom's largest property companies.
The role of COO will focus on aligning the strategic objectives of ALDAR's rapidly developing portfolio with the internal operations of the company to deliver efficient returns for investors and home owners. This will ensure seamless communication amongst the management team and drive capacity for further expansion.
"The appointment of John Bullough is an important step in the strategic development of ALDAR as a publicly listed company in the UAE. His expertise in developing prestigious real estate properties and driving a proactive and ambitious team will provide our management team with an invaluable resource in taking the next steps to deliver world-class projects to our shareholders and customers in the Middle East and further a field," commented Ronald Barrott, CEO of ALDAR.
John Bullough joined Grosvenor in 1989, and during this time held a number of senior roles within the business in Britain & Ireland. He has made a significant contribution to Grosvenor's retail development business and has been responsible for winning several important projects in recent years. With its pipeline of future projects now secured, John Bullough has decided that now is the time to take up a new challenge.
