MICHAEL GARIN JOINS TWOFOUR54 AS CEO
Garin leaves Image Nation Abu Dhabi where he served as its CEO from 2011
TwoFour54 Abu Dhabi appointed Michael Garin as the firm’s CEO, who served as Image Nation’s CEO from 2011. Garin, who has more than 50 years’ experience as a media executive, will oversee the firm’s strategy and operations as well as managing and forging key international partnerships.
Following the formation of a board of directors for TwoFour54 in July 2019, and the appointment of HE Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak as chairman and the then CEO HE Maryam Eid AlMheiri as vice chair, the CEO position became vacant.
Al Mubarak said: “Michael has been a key contributor to the development of the media industry in Abu Dhabi for more than a decade, playing a key role in its success through his work with Image Nation and Abu Dhabi Media, among other roles.
Al Mubarak also thanked AlMheiri for her “dedication and leadership as CEO of TwoFour54”.
“Under her guidance, the media zone has achieved multiple milestones, and is today home to more than 500 media firms,” he added. TwoFour54 and Image Nation already work closely on numerous projects, including Inheritance, the world’s first Arabic soap opera.
