Saudi-based Dar Al Arkan Real Estate Development Company has roped in Ziad El Chaar, the former managing director of top UAE developer Damac, as its new chief executive.

Based in Riyadh, Dar Al-Arkan is a specialist in the development of master-planned lifestyle residential communities offering developed land parcels, apartments and villas.
