Najeeba Al JabriVice President, Technical, Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA)
A Chemical Engineer with 20years+ experience and completed high class Executive MBA from Hult International Business School in 2018. Started her career with Dubal Aluminium as Graduate Trainee in 2001. Her enthusiasm, commitment and focus driven goals elevated her role to Operations Manager (the first National Lady) in DUBAL. Najeeba was involved on the Start Up of 79B Expansion Project in 2006, with annual production of 450,000 tones. In 2007 she was awarded by the International Aluminum Institute for Best Environment Friendly Producer award. In 2008 she was awarded on leading the restoration of the production lines after long power outage. In April 2010, she joined Dragon Oil as Assistant Planning Manager and promoted to Senior Manager Planning. Working in Dragon Oil is totally different experience for Najeeba. But she has proven that nothing is impossible if you are passionate about your work, and you are interested in learning new things. After a brief break from the Aluminium Industry, in 2013 she joined Emirates Aluminium (“EMAL”, now known as EGA Al Taweelah), and was given the task of leading the start-up of the world’s longest potline utilizing the most advance smelting technology within EGA. Despite the intense pace and the volume of activity required, the energization of the entire potline was achieved with zero lost time injury and the project was delivered to Operations ahead of scheduled time. Since 2016 Najeeba is leading the EGA technical department as Vice President - Technical Midstream. In this role she drives many strategic initiatives for the company.
