Dubai developer Nakheel has named Aqil Kazim as chief commercial officer of the firm. Kazim, who joins from Jumeirah Golf Estates, where he was director, replaces Manal Shaheen, a company spokeswoman said yesterday.
Shaheen, who joined Nakheel in 2005 as assistant sales manager, had largely played a sales and marketing role at the firm, but has stepped back.
Manal Shaheen has left the company, a company spokesperson said yesterday. She gave no details.
In January, Nakheel said it made a $10.3 million (Dh37.8m) coupon payment on its $750m bond due 2011. Shaheen's departure follows the resignation in January of David Jackson, the former chief executive of Istithmar World, Dubai World's investment arm.
