Investment company Amanat Holdings appoints two new senior figures to its board
The GCC’s largest healthcare and education investment company, Amanat Holdings, has appointed new chairman, Hamad Abdulla Alshamsi and Dr Vayalil as its new Vice Chairman and Managing Director.
Selected by the board, both will work to further the companies ambitions to drive the UAE’s healthcare sector and cater to international markets in order to not only remain competitive, but become a centre of excellence in both healthcare and education.
“With increased demand for quality healthcare and education services in the GCC, the time is very opportune for the private sector to play a growing role in its contribution to these sectors,” explained chairman Faisal Belhoul. “With our long term and collaborative investment approach we are well positioned to capitalise on these opportunities.”
