The Links Group has announced the appointment of Stuart Curtis as its first group Managing Director for all of the UAE and Qatar.
Links Group, which specialises in the formation of companies, has brought the Qatar and UAE operations of its company together under one group MD for the first time, as part of a strategic review to offer a wider choice to companies looking to relocate in the Middle East – and to make the process more flexible and efficient.
Until recently Stuart was working as the General Manager for Links Group in the UAE. He will continue to be based in Dubai but will head up the entire operational and support functions across Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Qatar. He will also be instrumental in the company’s plans to develop further across the GCC and Mena regions.
Commenting on his new appointment Stuart said:” This move comes as part of our desire to ensure that our business offers an entirely flexible and supportive procedure for any company that wishes to set up a legal or commercial presence in the Middle East. It is a natural progression of our growth and we feel that it will benefit customers by introducing one senior management team for all areas.’
In addition to heading up the entire current day to day operations for the Links Group, Stuart will also be looking to further develop the range of added value partners and service providers for companies who are members of the Links Group – for example on initiatives like full compliance to ISO/Six Sigma standards or even through the provision of corporate services like the recently launched LINKS Marketing.
Julie Irving, Chief Operating Officer for the Links Group, welcomed Stuart’s appointment adding: “Part of our success has been the ability to spot opportunities in new or growing market places and adapt our business accordingly.
‘However the appointment of a Group Managing Director like Stuart is an indicator that we are now moving to the next strategic level and looking to shape and determine our own development through a focused and dedicated senior management team.’
