Posted 11 October 2016 · Add Comment

Al Yah Satellite Communications Company (Yahsat), the UAE-based satellite operator, has appointed Mona Al Muhairi as chief human capital officer.

Al Muhairi has more than 20 years of human capital experience and she has been promoted to the role having previously held the position of executive director – human capital at Yahsat since 2007. Currently Al Muhairi is in charge of performance management, career growth, team development and Emiratisation, and is responsible for ensuring that the human capital initiatives support Yahsat’s overall strategic objectives.

Yahsat chief executive officer, Masood M Sharif Mahmood said: “Mona has played a key role in developing what is Yahsat’s strongest asset – our human capital. Under her guidance and direction Yahsat has achieved an impressive workforce nationalisation with over 62% UAE Nationals.” 

Currently Al Yah 3, Yahsat’s third satellite, is in the final production stage at the satellite manufacture Orbital ATK in the United States. As part of its building process, Yahsat has introduced a global program for the development of its engineers. The program allows a select group of Emirati engineers to participate in the end-to-end satellite manufacturing process to launch Al Yah 3. Furthermore, Yahsat, Masdar Institute and Orbital ATK have initiated a Master’s programme in Space Systems and Engineering. 

Mahmood added: “I wish Mona my congratulations on her new role that has been earned through dedication and hard work. We have confidence that her efforts will go from strength to strength in building our organisation by overseeing Yahsat’s human capital assets”
