Visa plans new office in Abu Dhabi
Abu Dhabi, October 22, 2012
Visa, one of the world’s leading global payments solution providers, has announced plans to open its new office in Abu Dhabi.
The office will accommodate the company’s growing business and reflect its commitment to continue investing in and expanding its operations across the UAE.
The decision to increase Visa’s footprint in the UAE beyond its base in Dubai is a response to a market place that has developed in both competitiveness and sophistication, a statement from the company said. By having a permanent presence in the capital, Visa will be able to interact more closely with its client base as well as the regulatory community.
Marcello Baricordi, Visa’s UAE general manager, said: “The Middle East is one of the fastest growing regions for Visa worldwide, and Abu Dhabi is a fast growing emirate, where we must continue to invest and build our presence to be as close as possible to our valued partners.”
“This decision is another tangible initiative toward our ongoing commitment to provide our partners and cardholders with best in class products and services designed to make payments faster, more convenient, more reliable and secure, and more appropriate for local needs.”
“We strongly value our relationships with the regulatory authorities, partner banks, and strategic merchant partnerships, so we look forward to being situated alongside them, when we open our office in Abu Dhabi,” he added.
Aninda Roy, Visa’s business development manager for the UAE, will be the office’s representative in Abu Dhabi.
Kamran Siddiqi, general manager, Visa Mena, said: “In recent years, we have seen considerable growth in our business across the region and particularly with our partners in Abu Dhabi. As a result, it has become vital for us to open an office in Abu Dhabi to help facilitate these relationships moving forward and to accommodate our ever-growing workforce in the region.” – TradeArabia News Service
