OBG names new Dubai Editorial Manager
Dubai, January 18, 2009
Oxford Business Group (OBG), the highly acclaimed global publishing, research and consultancy firm, has appointed Chase J Thompson as its Dubai Editorial Manager.
Thompson, who previously held positions with the United Nations and in the media industry in the Middle East, the Caribbean, Asia and Europe, will direct OBG’s team of international analysts based in Dubai for six month preparing OBG’s next annual guide to the emirate.
“This is a very exciting time to start my posting in Dubai, which is in the midst of a remarkable transformation,” he said.
“So many sectors of the emirate, notably financial services, are helping to build a diversified economy, which will be certain to give Dubai the required strengths in the years ahead.”
Thompson, who graduated with honours in International Affairs and Economics from the University of Colorado at Boulder, has conducted interviews with a host of the world’s most important political and business leaders, which have recently included former prime minister of France Dominique de Villepin, chief executive of Hong Kong Donald Tsang, former prime minister of the Bahamas Perry Christie and Shaikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum.
“Chase is eminently prepared for his new role, with his work in the Middle East and other parts of the world, wide knowledge of the media, information gathering, and in-depth interviewing which will contribute greatly to the quality of The Report: Dubai 2009,” said OBG’s director of field operations Elizabeth Boissevain.
OBG’s experienced Dubai based team are currently working on The Report: Dubai 2009, which will feature a series of exclusive interviews with leading political and economic figures.
Rated as the premier guide for foreign direct investment into the emirate’s dynamic economy, The Report: Dubai 2009 will offer a comprehensive and detailed assessment of Dubai’s opportunities for growth, the economic challenges and the overall attractiveness of the emirate for investors.
Available in print form and online, it will be part of the range of OBG's publications, renowned as leading sources of information on developing and emerging economies around the world.- TradeArabia News Service
