Abu Dhabi: Chief executive officer Badr Al Olama told Gulf News that working for Strata manufacturing has been the most inspiring of his past twelve years.
“It’s the most inspiring one because you are contributing towards a product that is being used by people around the world. Every aircraft that is manufactured has parts made in the UAE. It is very inspiring to see my peers, my colleagues and myself working together to make these parts, and putting those on aircraft that are carrying millions of passengers around the world.”
Al Olama became the CEO of the company in 2012. Prior to this, he was an advocate and legal consultant at Habib Al Mulla & Company, now operating as Baker & McKenzie Habib Al Mulla, a well-known law firm in the UAE.
He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Sharia and Law from the United Arab Emirates University and an LLM degree from Harvard Law School.
He said his experience at Harvard University has helped him in setting up big targets that contribute to global good.
“It was more about critical thinking, more about research, more about aspiring to do good things for the world. That experience is what I brought into this organisation.”
“Encourage others to do good things for the world, have high objectives, high targets or high ambitions. My job as chief executive at Strata is to help everyone achieve those dreams.”
In addition to his role at Strata, Al Olama serves as president of the Harvard Club of the UAE and is the chairman of Bidayaat, a childcare company.
