Executive Director, Free Zone
With a thoroughly international background, Krysta has lived and completed work assignments in a variety of countries ranging from Spain to South Africa, as well as a significant period working in her native Australia where she headed up a number of major projects, including BP’s IFRS implementation.
Qualified as a fellow certified practicing accountant and a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors, Krysta also holds Master degrees in Professional Accounting and Business Administration and prior to taking up her position at the DMCC, was working in Dubai with Al Futtaim.
Acknowledging the challenging aspects of her current role, Krysta is required to continually develop the Free Zone’s approach, highlighting its suitability for both large corporates that are relocating to the region, through to SME’s that are looking to flourish.
Commenting on the DMCC’s appeal Krysta summarised; “It’s no one thing that makes us stand out, but a combination of the ideal location, with the right governing authority that understands how to conduct business in a friendly way. We are constantly looking to partner or work with industries and sectors in order to create opportunities for our members.”
