Faris Juma Ibrahim is a natural entrepreneur with an impressive record of initiating and leading turnaround growth strategies in complex and challenging environments.

With  sharp talent for strategic and critical thinking Faris had already honed his skills as an investor consultant for Essham Securities and as Global Business Development Manager for the Ahmed Ramadhan Juma Group when he graduated with a UOWD Bachelor of Commerce in Marketing in 2008. As a new graduate, he served as General Manager of Emaar Retail, where he managed entertainment, leisure and retail operations for leading global brands.

Less than three years from completion of his degree, Faris was appointed as Chief Executive Officer of Zone Parking Solutions, and saw the company through a challenging point, when it was suffering the effects of the economic crisis and a poor market position. Through his innovative approach in streamlining the company’s operations, he managed to turn the company’s finances around and achieve record revenues.

Faris’s expertise in all aspects of business management enables him to break new ground in strategy, processes and drives cutting-edge research and development to deliver new products to the market.

Key to Faris’ success is an unwavering focus on effective management of the company’s workforce and his faith in human innovation as a crucial tenet of business growth. He empowers people to achieve individual and collective goals and has designed employee engagement and reward schemes and improved organisational structure to better align staff roles with the company’s objectives.

He is dedicated to serving the UAE economy , and uses his leadership position to encourage the hiring of UAE nationals in order to strengthen the nation’s future and Faris himself was one of just a few young Emiratis selected by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum for an intensive leadership program in recognition of his leadership potential.

With maturity beyond his years and undoubtedly a long and successful career ahead of him, he also inspires others to use their talents to the best of their capacity, and embodies the spirit and qualities that UOWD strives to embed in its graduates.
