The former Executive Chairman of Sharjah Investment and Development Authority has joined Octanium Experiences, the brand behind the recent 1000 Miglia Experience Prologue UAE.

CEO Martin Halder said “I warmly welcome HE Marwan Bin Jassim Al Sarkal as our new Management Advisor for Strategy. For Octanium, this appointment creates rich opportunities and immense dividends both to our rapidly expanding footprint in the classic car arena and most importantly in the local arena.”

Octanium Experiences are working on several exciting projects, such as WERK, an innovative real-estate concept, a sort of all-in-one posh auto mall that will encompass a complete range of services. These will include storage facilities, event spaces, and premium retail sections. The PADDOCK, is another project that aims to serve the gentleman racer, a sort of ultimate turnkey solution providing dedicated garages, villa hospitality, and access to an FIA-grade Formula 1 circuit for epic track-day thrills.

This is where the new Management Advisor for Strategy, Marwan Al Sarkal, who is widely credited as the man who transformed the fortunes of Sharjah in tourism, investment, and as a cultural hub, will come in. With his passion for cars and an impressive collection, Marwan Al Sarkal will be supporting the senior management of Octanium as a strategic advisor in its mission to create and manage the rapidly expanding ecosystem for classic automobiles in the UAE and the wider GCC.

H.E. Marwan Al Sarkal said: “I am proud to be part of Octanium. For myself, joining Octanium means a lot as we are planning to take the automotive industry to another level with the type of services, races, and transformation that will have a huge impact on the positioning of the UAE in the automotive sector. As a person passionate about cars, I feel I am in my sweet spot, and it is the right time.”

Octanium Experiences are actively involved in further developing a series of customer immersive experiences such as the Octanium Tours – bespoke drives for a chosen few – and the 1000 Miglia Experience UAE, Octanium’s flagship event and the Most Beautiful Race In The World.
