Mahmood currently serves on the boards of Al Yah Satellite Communications Company (Yahsat), the UAE Space Agency, and Etihad Aviation Group.

The Group also announced in October that Obaid Bokisha will transition into the role of Group Chief Operations Officer (GCOO) from his previous position of Group Chief Transformation Officer and acting Group Chief Procurement Officer, as he will continue to lead transformation, procurement and administration. Additionally, Obaid will oversee business continuity and crisis management.

In a major development for the telco, Etisalat Group and G42 announced last month the signing of a binding agreement to merge their data centre (DC) offering in the UAE. A total of twelve data centres will be combined in a new joint venture business operating under Khazna Data Centres, creating the UAE’s largest data centre provider.

G42 and Etisalat Group will each own 60 per cent and 40 per cent of Khazna Data Centres, respectively. Khazna Data Centres will continue to develop the existing business and explore new business opportunities, both in the UAE and abroad.
