Dubai appointed Saeb Eigner as the chairman of the Dubai Financial Services Authority, the regulator of the Dubai International Financial Center tax-free business park, to replace Abdullah Mohamed Saleh.
Eigner was appointed deputy chairman of DFSA’s board after Saleh was named governor of the DIFC in July, according to a statement on DFSA’s website. Eigner is the founder and chairman of Lonworld, a private finance, property and investment group, as well as a governor of the London Business School and was previously a senior manager at ANZ Grindlays Bank Plc in London.
Dubai also extended the term of DFSA’s current board members for three years, according to an e-mailed statement.
