Introducing a General Manager to your company is a significant milestone in any organisation’s journey. Whether you are undergoing a strategic change, succession planning, or simply seeking fresh leadership, the process involves several crucial steps and legal considerations. According to the Federal Decree-Law No. 32 of 2021 on Commercial Companies, all UAE firms, both onshore and freezones, need to employ a General Manager (GM). The General Manager will be in charge of monitoring the day-to-day operations of the company and ensuring that it complies with the UAE rules and regulations.
The qualifications for a General Manager in a UAE firm may differ depending on the company’s legal structure and the industry in which it operates. Companies in some areas, for example, may require a General Manager with specific skills or expertise.
A General Manager who understands the legal and regulatory framework in which the organisation operates and who can effectively manage the business operations, workers, and money is essential for a UAE business. The General Manager is critical to the company’s development and maintaining compliance with the UAE rules and regulations.
