Etisalat braced for management shake-up Etisalat is believed to be changing senior management.
By  Roger Field Published  August 7, 2011

UAE telco Etisalat's senior management team is set for a major shake-up, including the departure of the company's chairman, Mohammed Omran, sources close to the matter told CommsMEA.

One of the sources added that Etisalat is considering promoting one of its existing directors to the role of chairman.

The company also plans to create a new group CEO role, and Etisalat's current group chief operating officer, Ahmed Julfar, is tipped to be the main contender for the position, the source said.

Etisalat was not immediately available for comment when contacted by CommsMEA.

If confirmed, the departure of Mohammed Omran will be a significant change for Etisalat. Omran, who joined Etisalat in 1977, became chairman in 2005 and successfully oversaw the company's transformation from UAE incumbent to an international operator with a footprint in 18 countries in the Middle East, Africa and Asia
