Announcing several organizational changes and new appointments
ArabiaWeather Inc. - the leading provider of weather products, services and solutions to consumers and businesses in the Middle East - has announced the formation of a standalone meteorology department within the company, allowing for closer integration between its hyperlocal end-to-end weather technology and its growing team of meteorologists, operational staff and customer support specialists.
The department will house ArabiaWeather's new and existing weather, technology, operations, customer care, and quality control functions and teams. It will be supported by an accreditation team that ensures the company's operations are compliant with global standards, including those of the World Meteorological Organization and the International Civil Aviation Organization.
Meanwhile, the company has announced the appointment of Darren Eulenstein as its Chief Meteorology Officer and head of its newly-formed meteorology department. Eulenstein brings 30 years of experience in meteorology to the company, having previously held posts within the Australian government's Bureau of Meteorology and at Serco Group PLC, contracted by the Abu Dhabi Airports Company, the Dubai Airports Company, and Dubai Air Navigation Services.
"I am very excited to be joining ArabiaWeather," Eulenstein said, following his appointment.
"The level and quality of service that the company provides to its customers is exemplary, and the company has a strong understanding of the role of technology in providing meteorology services. The company's culture is also built around a passion for weather, which you can see across its staff."
On his part, Mohammed Al-Shaker, CEO of ArabiaWeather, said, "We are very excited that Darren has joined our team. There is no doubt that his experience will help us continue to improve the quality of our services. He has significant experience in meteorology, including in aviation and marine, as well as in general services. Having lived in the region for more than 15 years, Darren's extensive knowledge of weather conditions in the Middle East has helped him develop a comprehensive understanding of the region's meteorology sector, which will directly reflect on the quality of services provided by ArabiaWeather."
