Emaar partners with Elie Saab for beachfront property

Luxury has a new destination: The Elie Saab at Emaar Beachfront project. The gated island destination in Dubai was unveiled Sunday at Dubai Opera by Mohamed Alabbar, chairman of Emaar, and Elie Saab, founder and chairman of Elie Saab Group.
Global developer Emaar is partnering for the first time with the renowned fashion designer for the new residential development.
“Elie Saab is the pride of the Arab world and a fascinating international success story,” said Alabbar. “Through our first association with Elie Saab, admired by the world’s leading celebrities, we are offering discerning customers a new lifestyle address. Every aspect of these glamorous residences is personally designed by Elie Saab, who brings his rare genius and aesthetics to create a new architectural and lifestyle expression. It is our honor to be associated with him.”
Saab said: “We are delighted to collaborate with Emaar and Mohamed Alabbar on this new project. Over the years, Elie Saab has evolved into a lifestyle brand, through the development of diversified product categories that deliver a unique experience of the brand’s universe. Through this new collaboration, brought by Emaar, leaders and experts in real estate, Elie Saab is confident that its aim at extending the brand experience into home and interiors will be a granted success.”
In addition to one to three-bedroom apartments, the tower will have an exquisite collection of Elie Saab four-bedroom penthouses — overlooking the Arabian Sea, The Palm and Dubai Marina.
Designed to celebrate the 1930s Art Deco era, the tower sets itself apart in height, profile and its inherent link to fashion and style. Ground-level boutique fashion stores, galleries and cafes, as well as lobbies designed by Saab, promote the feeling of luxury.
Inspired by chic Miami lifestyle, an amenity pool deck located at the eighth level ensures superb views and privacy from the promenade.
Owners of these select units will also have the chance to get a private consultation from the Elie Saab design team on purchasing furniture for their premium units.

SABB becomes ICAEW authorized training employer

The Saudi British Bank (SABB) has joined forces with Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales (ICAEW) to become the first bank in the Kingdom to be an ICAEW authorized training employer. The partnership will help SABB attract and retain talented individuals by offering ICAEW’s ACA qualification.

The new partnership is part of the SABB’s strategy to become a best-in-class international finance organization, but most importantly by supporting the Saudi Vision 2030. By providing Saudi nationals access to internationally recognized qualifications and training, supporting development of their skills and abilities, SABB aims to help them achieve a better future that matches their qualifications and ambitions.

Matthew Pearce, chief financial officer at SABB, said: “By partnering with a world-leading accountancy and finance organization that maintains the highest professional standards, SABB is very proud to become the first bank in the Kingdom to be an authorized training employer with ICAEW. This partnership aligns with SABB’s vision and strategy to be internationally connected while developing Saudi nationals and supporting Vision 2030.”

Completing the ACA qualification enables professionals to use the title “ICAEW Chartered Accountant.” 

Michael Armstrong FCA, ICAEW regional director, Middle East, Africa and South Asia, said: “ICAEW works with employers to support the professional development of their teams. In Saudi Arabia, ICAEW works alongside the national profession to complement the important national accountancy qualification and equip finance talent with the broad range of technical knowledge and professional skills they need to make a great contribution to their organizations. 

“As an authorized training employer, SABB will be able to prepare employees for the internationally recognized ACA qualification. Throughout the world, our training partners benefit from being able to attract the best talent and develop the next generation of business leaders. Our partnership with SABB underscores its commitment to remain at the forefront of the fast-paced banking industry and contribute to the growth of Saudi Arabia’s financial services industry.”
