Mariam Almheiri, who also serves as the UAE Minister of State for Food and Water Security and is Director General of Abu Dhabi Government Media Office, recently relinquished the role of twofour54 CEO to Michael Garin (see separate profile). While in charge, she co-produced the world’s first Arabic-language soap opera INHERITANCE and oversaw the transition of the campus to an ever larger facility on Yas Island with state-of-the-art TV studios and office space for media as it builds a Studio City complex in the Mina Zayed waterfront area, with a 74-acre backlot and water tanks.
