Indianapolis, IN, December 23, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- HDG Mansur Dubai Limited is delighted to announce that Dr Rachna Upadhya, Managing Director of the HDG Mansur office in Dubai (regulated by the Dubai Financial Services Authority), has been named one of the Financial News 100 Rising Stars at an event that took place in London on Monday 7 December 2009. She was also included in the Top 5 Rising Stars working in the Gulf, published in the Gulf Financial News “The Ones to Watch” on 23 November 2009.
The Financial News 100 Rising Stars is the publication’s pick of the brightest and most rapidly ascending talent under the age of 40. In its fifth edition, this year’s list has been chosen from over 400 nominees and has been expanded to take into account candidates from the Middle-East and Africa, thus reflecting the growing importance of those regions in the financial world.
Rachna has an impressive resumé and her nomination comes as little surprise given her academic and professional credentials. As the only female chief executive in Dubai International Financial Centre (the DIFC), she started her career as one of the UK’s youngest General Medical Practitioners before moving to the financial sector in 2000 and subsequently holding senior positions at Merrill Lynch and Collins Stewart. She joined HDG Mansur in 2009 and heads the Group’s Middle East operations.
Harold D. Garrison, Chairman HDG Mansur, commented: “HDG Mansur prides itself on the high-caliber talent in our company and we are grateful to Financial News for recognizing Dr. Upadhya as a “Rising Star.” She has displayed exceptional achievement in her career. We are pleased to have her on our team.”
