Source: 4/17/2012, Location: Middle East

The Dow Chemical Company recently appointed Moosa AL-Moosa as General Manager for the United Arab Emirates, reiterating its commitment to the United Arab Emirates and the Middle East region. The appointment of Al-Moosa as general manager is in parallel with Dow's growth strategy and commitment to the region.

AL-Moosa will focus on enhancing Dow's presence in the UAE through supporting commercial success in the country by building and sustaining relationships with key industry, government and community members to help enable growth for Dow businesses in the UAE. He will assume these responsibilities in addition to his existing role of finance director for Dow Middle East & Africa.

"Dow has been in the UAE for more than 30 years, but our presence here has never been more important to Dow's strategy than it is today," said Geoffery Merszei, executive vice president and president of Dow Europe, Middle East & Africa.

"To further Dow's transformation and capitalize on opportunities in this emerging market, Moosa will be dedicated to managing our presence across the UAE."

Dow in the UAE currently employs approximately 150 employees, and was one of the first investors in the Jebel Ali Free Zone. Through its regional hub office in Dubai, Dow plans to continue to cater to different market segments by forging new partnerships, strengthening its customer support and expanding its presence.

"Dubai serves as our Middle East hub, which makes our presence in the UAE critical to our success," said Markus Wildi, president Middle East.

"Moosa's combination of regional knowledge and global experiences will enable him to maximize on opportunities for Dow across the UAE. Under his leadership, I know we will make great strides in accelerating growth and positioning Dow as an innovative, solutions provider in the country."

AL-Moosa joined Dow in Michigan in 2005 where he worked across several departments including financial and statutory accounting, cost accounting, tax, auditing, business finance and treasury.

He was also part of Dow's Mergers and Acquisitions group with responsibility for leading transaction teams on acquisitions, divestitures and joint venture projects.

Al-Moosa has a Masters of Business Administration from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania and a Bachelor of Arts in economics from Georgetown University in Washington D.C.
