Will provide technological and sustainable leadership, says company

Dubai-based Farnek Avireal, property and facilities management outsource company, has announced the appointment of Markus Oberlin as its new CEO.

According to Farnek, Oberlin, a facilities management (FM) professional with over 20 years’ international experience, including seven years in the Middle East, he was previously Farnek’s General Manager. In his expanded role, he will take on broader strategic responsibilities with a mandate to take the company forward through both its FM and sustainability programme capabilities, the announcement added.

“In my new role, I’m keen to continue our corporate focus on the development and implementation of practical and cost-effective sustainability solutions, in conjunction with our partners, Green Globe and myclimate, as well as utilising our own Internet-based energy benchmarking tools,” said Oberlin. “As utility costs rise and the environmental lobby becomes ever more vocal, water and energy saving will be critical to reducing not only the operating costs of buildings but also improving the image of its owners and management.”

Commenting on Oberlin’s appointment to play a new role in the organisation, Remo Stoffel, Chairman Avireal Switzerland, said, “Markus has been the driving force behind the company’s successful growth in the UAE, as well as championing carbon reduction and management initiatives to Farnek’s growing portfolio of high-profile clients and the local community.”
