BFH Holding appoints new chief executive

MANAMA, March 16, 2015

Bahrain Financial Harbour Holding Company (BFHHC) has appointed Angus Campbell as its new chief executive.

Campbell will also be the chief executive of BFHHC subsidiary, the Financial Centre Development Company (FCDC), a fully-integrated waterfront financial city developer, said a report in the Gulf Daily News (GDN), our sister publication.

Campbell has taken over from Ahmed Ebrahim Al Moataz, who will continue as a board member of BFHHC and FCDC.

The new chief executive assumed the roles from the first of the month.

He is a veteran real estate professional with extensive real estate asset management experience of the UK, GCC and Sub-Saharan African property markets.

Campbell has been a professional member of the UK's Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) since 1987 having graduated with a BSc in Estate Management from Heriot-Watt University and completed an RICS Post Graduate Diploma in Property Investment from the College of Estate Management.

The board of directors of BFHHC and FCDC said they were confident that Mr Campbell's industry knowledge and market insight would enable BFH to meet its full potential as the kingdom's premier business hub and reinforce Bahrain's position as the leading international financial centre of the Middle East.

Campbell said BFH would continue to improve service levels offered to existing tenants and to attract new high quality office and retail occupiers looking for prestige space.

The financial centre comprises the Harbour Towers and Harbour Mall.

The Harbour Towers comprise in excess of 100,000 sqm in total of grade A office space in two towers over 53 floors.

The Harbour Mall comprises in excess of 22,000 sqm of retail space over six floors which links both of the Harbour Towers office buildings on the second floor.

The financial centre currently has in excess of 3,100 car spaces within various multi-storey and surface car parks on-site with another multi-storey car park for 1,250 car spaces currently under construction due for completion this year.

As many as 3,200 staffers are believed to be currently working in the offices within the financial centre. - TradeArabia News Service
