He oversaw the merger with Abu Dhabi Power, a transaction that elevated TAQA to become one of the largest companies listed on ADX, positioning it among the top 10 integrated utilities companies in the EMEA region.

Prior to TAQA, Al Dhaheri who completed a Bachelor’s Degree in International Business from Eckerd College in Florida, also served at companies including the Abu Dhabi Media Company, Etihad Rail and Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA).
