Chairman Profile

Mr. Saeed Khalifa Mohammed Al Fuqaei is a UAE National who has established a reputation as a prominent business figure in the region. Mr. Khalifa is a dynamic and driven individual whose career has developed by identifying opportunities others have missed and utilizing them for commercial success. In 2001 he founded “Shuraa Management &Consultancy LLC” along with his business partner, Ms. Yasmeen Siddiqui and it has since blossomed in to a premier Business Setup Service Provider in the United Arab Emirates.

“Since a young age I have always had a keen interest in the global and local business environment and when exploring the difficulties companies face in establishing themselves in Dubai, I was shocked both by the obstacles firms must overcome and also by the lack of professional support.” Rather than seeing this as is a problem, Mr. Khalifa saw the opportunity; “For me it was an obvious move to offer a more thorough and professional service to companies wishing to do business in the UAE than was previously available. This not only eases the transition of international enterprises but also creates jobs and boosts the local economy which is beneficial for all concerned. Our priority has always been to assist our clients to save their time, money and effort by providing expert advice gained through years of experience.”

Since its inception in 2001, Shuraa has become the leading business set up service provider in the region and has enjoyed continuous growth under Mr. Khalifa and Ms. Siddiqui’s stewardship. Both partners maintain a hands on approach to all matters pertaining to the business and take pride in Shuraa’s ability to offer a complete service tailored to needs of each individual client.

As the leading business setup service provider in UAE, Shuraa offers a wide range of services and complete business set-up packages, right from establishment all the way through to the necessary post formation activities. Services include business trade licensing ®istration all over UAE, business centers, sourcing office space, PRO services, all types of visas and opening of corporate bank accounts. Establishing a business is a challenging process but by assisting firms to make the right decision at the right time, Shuraa has flourished and has successfully established more than 20,000 companies to date.

Mr. Khalifa’s success did not come as a surprise considering his background as a member of the esteemed Al Fuqaei family in Dubai. His father, Mr. Khalifa Mohammed Al Fuqaei, was often referred to “King of the Sea” and was a highly respected business leader in UAE. Mr. Khalifa Mohammed Al Fuqaei started his career decades ago and had the foresight and resourcefulness to develop shipping trade with numerous countries long before the UAE was the recognized economy as it is today.

This drive and determination was passed down to his son who is successful self-made entrepreneur in his own right. Apart from the enormous success of Shuraa Business Setup, Mr. Saeed Khalifa also owns several other businesses and properties in Dubai and across UAE.
