The success of any organization depends on the strategies laid out by its business minds. Marya Group’s business has been at the forefront, thanks to Abdelrahman Ismeik’s efforts. He is the CEO and a key member of Marya Group, a business venture based out of Abu Dhabi. Abdelrahman has been overlooking the company’s operations, and since 2012, he is closely involved in its investment into the German football team ‘Munich 1860’. Being an investor, he has brought Marya Group to a new level in the last few years.
With a complete focus on the German football team, the journey has been one of its kind. The football league regulations in Germany are not similar to that of the European countries. However, Mr Abdelrahman understood the regulations as it is crucial for the Sports Verein to maintain the right direction over the club management. During this time, Ismeik took a complete charge over the investments, and after knowing about the restrictive regulations, he managed to save the business which would have had become insolvent then.
As far as the German football teams are concerned, ‘Munich 1860’ is the only team with having a foreign investor. Being a third-party investor, Abdelrahman Ismeik’s leadership has shown how he brought the business on top despite having many challenges. One thing to note is that there has been a significant restructuring and development of important controls while maintaining league regulations. Understanding different league regulations in a very different culture was a challenge, but Ismeik overcame this challenge by encouraging the other areas of the business to grow.
Even in the COVID-19 pandemic, his investments did not incur major losses for Marya Group. The businessman led other investment and development opportunities in bio-technologies to encourage COVID-19 testing through First Capital Group Holding, a company regulated by the Dubai International Financial Centre. Apart from this, the entrepreneur and his team are keen to make use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions to help the businesses which suffered a major loss amidst the coronavirus crisis.
