As ILEA ME 2018 term comes to an end, it is with great pleasure that we can officially announce our new incoming president Paul Berger, CEO of Arena Middle East & Asia. On behalf of ILEA ME, we would like to thank Dan Bolton and his board for all the hard work, time and effort put into building and growing our Chapter. Over the past 18 months, the Chapter has seen a growth in membership, close relationships with government entities, working groups that are trying to tackle the issues but also create opportunities for our members and to receive the official recognition by Dubai Government by winning the Business excellence awards. Paul Berger has made the decision to select his board of strongly seasoned industry professionals whom he trusts to be able to support him, our members and the wider industry.
