Recognised as a Visionary CEO at the CEO Middle East Awards, Mohamed Abdalla Al Zaabi manages Miral’s growing portfolio of leisure and entertainment assets on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.
These include Ferrari World, Yas Waterworld, Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi and the CLYMB indoor adventure sports hub.
These attractions and the infrastructure around them form a key part of the Emirate’s mission to create a sustainable, diversified and globally integrated economy. That means delivering world-class experiences that attract visitors from far beyond the UAE’s borders. Next to open will be SeaWorld Abu Dhabi in 2022. The new park will feature attractions never before seen at a SeaWorld site. Al Zaabi has said he does not rule out further theme parks at Yas Island, which is now 55 percent complete.
Miral CEO since 2015, Al Zaabi has over a decade’s experience of project management and leadership roles, previously with real estate developer Aldar Properties. He also holds board positions at Farah Experiences (operator of Yas Island’s attractions) and Experience Hub, Yas’s trade and promotion arm.
