du today announced the induction of Hana Al Rostamani to its Board of Directors as per a nomination by shareholder Emirates Investment Authority as a representative to replace Younis Al Khoori. The Board will convene for a meeting on Monday, 3 June 2013, to ratify Hana’s appointment.

As a senior leader and a UAE national with a wealth of experience across key business sectors, Hana will apply her experience in providing strategic leadership and guidance as du continues its growth story in telecom.

Ahmad Bin Byat, Chairman of du, said: “On behalf of du and the Board, I would also like to thank Younis for his invaluable contribution as a Vice Chairman of du, and wish him continued success. We are pleased to welcome Hana onto the Board of Directors. I am confident that she will prove to be a strong board member capable of making significant contributions to du, with her strong business expertise and experience. Her knowledge of organizational transformation and change will prove vital as du enters its next phase of growth and further cement du’s reputation in implementing corporate governance best practices.”

Hana Al Rostamani has more than 15 years of experience in the field of core business sectors, especially banking and financial services.

Hana’s appointment is in-line with the UAE leadership’s encouragement to appoint more women to Boards, as an empowering move that allows them to have a strong presence in decision-making positions. du fully supports this and has a dedicated strategy to empower women.
