Paris – February 1st, 2022 - Qadran, the Franco-Qatari economic circle, is pleased to announce the appointment of Omer Acar as its new President.
Omer succeeds Frédéric Gossot, who left his position as Regional Manager Europe West of Qatar Airways, and subsequently resigned from the presidency of Qadran. During his tenure, Frédéric has fully contributed to Qadran’s growth and success, and the association wishes to thank him for his commitment as President since 2020.
Qadran Founding members gathered on December 13th, 2021 to elect the new President. Omer Acar, Managing Director Europe and Americas of Katara Hospitality was unanimously appointed and accepted the mandate.
Omer, boasting 20 years’ worth of experience in the international luxury hospitality sector, participated in the creation of Qadran in 2015 and previously held the presidency of the association for several years. Omer was also the very first President of the Circle, contributing to building the foundations of Qadran. Today, he has accepted to serve Qadran once again, bringing the economic cooperation to another level.
“I am very honored to have been offered the presidency of Qadran once again, proof of a strong trust-based relationship with the Founding Members. I have fulfilled this role in the past, at the creation of the Circle and I have kept a close relationship with the association ever since. I strongly believe Qadran benefits from a great cooperation model, committed members and talented teams that uniquely position the association at the crossroads of solid economic cooperation between French and Qatari business leaders. Now, more than ever, I am along with our Founding Members committed to advancing Qadran’s ambitious projects, promoting friendship and dialogue, and further reinforcing the Franco-Qatari bilateral relationship, as we face a crucial year, full of opportunities with the upcoming FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022TM.”
