Appointed as Chairman of Nakheel in January 2020, His Excellency Mohammed Ibrahim Al Shaibani coordinated and led the redesign and realignment of the organisation along with the Board of Directors. Under His Excellency’s leadership Nakheel has undergone a complete transformation, with the organisation now being aligned to the Dubai 2040 Urban Master Plan and complementing the Dubai Economic Agenda D33, in line with the ultimate shareholder’s vision.
His Excellency has extensive experience in spear-heading world-leading, large scale real estate and hospitality projects, being Chairman of the Board of Directors of Kerzner International, the home of Atlantis, One & Only, SIRO and Rare Finds brands, as well as Chairman of Meydan City Corporation. This has in turn shaped the vision and future positioning of the Nakheel brand as a leader in its sector.
A graduate of the US, His Excellency has served the Government of Dubai for 25 years in various capacities across Singapore, London and Dubai, including as Deputy Chairman of Expo 2020 and Deputy Chairman of Dubai World.
In addition to his role at Nakheel, he also has several positions of strategic and economic importance to the Emirate, including as the Director General of His Highness the Ruler’s Court and Managing Director of the Investment Corporation of Dubai, the principal investment arm of the Government.
