Members of the Union of Arab Securities Authorities (UASA) have endorsed UAE's candidate, Salah Al Helyan, for the post of UASA Secretary General. The endorsement is in appreciation of the UAE's significant role in the founding of the UASA.
Al Helyan, succeeds Abdullah Al Turifi, CEO of the Emirates Securities and Commodities Authority (SCA), who served in that capacity for four years, during which he contributed immensely in strengthening UASA's basic foundation and in building its organisational structure.
With the organisation now entering a new era of acceleration, the situation demands a full time secretary general to steer its affairs.
This demand was highlighted earlier by Al Turifi, whose growing responsibilities as CEO of the SCA also demand his full attention.
Al Turifi has expressed profound gratitude to all UASA members for endorsing the UAE candidate to succeed him as the new UASA Secretary General.
UASA members congratulated Al Helyan, who was nominated for the post by the SCA. They described him as highly experienced and qualified for the new post.
Before assuming his new post, Al Helyan has served in various capacities in many organisations, including being a board member and deputy chairman of UAE Insurance Authority and as director general of Gulf Insurance Consulting.
He has also served as insurance and aviation expert at the Dubai Courts and the Ministry of Justice, to name just a few.
