After six years at Taqa, Carl Sheldon has decided to step down as Chief Executive Officer and Member of the Board of Directors, effective at the Annual General Meeting in April. Sheldon will remain as Chairman of Jorf Lasfar Energy Company.

Hamad Al Hurr Al Suwaidi, Chairman of the Board of Directors, said, “Carl has significantly strengthened the business across all our geographies and I am pleased that he will remain involved with Taqa. I would like to thank him for his great contribution and look forward to continuing to work with him in the future.”

Sheldon said, “I have been honoured to serve Taqa and Abu Dhabi for the past six years and I would like to thank the Board of Directors and all my colleagues for such a rewarding experience. I look forward to contributing to Taqa’s journey in the future.”

The leadership model at Taqa will change, with Abdulla Saif Al Nuaimi, Vice Chairman, taking up a part-time executive role assuming responsibility for Taqa’s government and strategic relations and external affairs.
