Stuart Bowie, GAC Dubai Managing Director

Dubai, 19 September 2011 – The GAC Group has announced two key management appointments in Dubai, United Arab Emirates for its group and local operations.

Until recently GAC’s Group Sales Director, Stuart Bowie has taken over as the Managing Director for GAC Dubai where he will be responsible for the profitable management of GAC’s single largest operation.

With three decades of experience in the logistics and shipping business, including key managerial roles in the United Kingdom, Hong Kong and Saudi Arabia before being appointed Group Sales Director in 2010, Bowie brings in-depth experience across the Middle East, Europe and Asia to his new role. His international perspective combined with local knowledge gained from eleven years in Dubai previously give him a strong grounding in driving GAC Dubai’s business forward.

Gurumurthi Shankar replaces him as the GAC Group Sales Director. Based in the Corporate Headquarters in Jebel Ali, he will work closely with all regions to ensure that everything from strategy, account management, manpower, training and resources are in place for the Group to achieve its sales goals.

With more than twenty years of logistics experience in Asia and the Middle East, Shankar’s solid finance background and sales and management expertise made him the ideal choice for this post. Prior to this appointment, he served as Regional Business Development Manager for Asia Pacific where he was instrumental in setting up GAC’s 3PL operations across Asia.

“The appointment of Shankar and Bowie marks GAC’s commitment to placing people with strong international management expertise in key posts at Group, regional or local level. With their experience and expertise, I am confident they will bring the business to new heights,” says Jan Farnelid, Group Vice President, Human Resources.
