Del-York Group Appoints Stella Fubara MD for Its Subsidiary

Del-York Development Company, a subsidiary of the Del-York Group has announced the appointment of Stella Fubara as its new Managing Director, effective May 2024.

With her background and pivotal role as the Regional Director of International Operations at the Dubai Department of Economy & Tourism, Fubara, a statement from the company said, is set to usher in a transformative era of economic and infrastructure development in Nigeria, drawing parallels to Dubai’s meteoric rise as a global city of the future.

Before her role at the Dubai Department of Economy & Tourism, Fubara  had an impactful tenure at Walt Disney, where she was instrumental in expanding the brand’s international presence.

At Disney, she managed major projects across various continents, focusing on integrating local cultural elements with Disney’s universally appealing storytelling.

“This experience honed her skills in managing large-scale projects and navigating complex global markets, which proved invaluable in her subsequent role in Dubai.

“Stella’s ability to blend creative vision with strategic business objectives was initially shaped during her time at Disney, setting the stage for her later successes in transforming Dubai’s economic and tourism landscapes,” the statement added.

Del-York Development Company said it is at the forefront of pioneering projects in Nigeria, including Kebulania, Lagos Film City and the 042 Arena and Entertainment City in Enugu State.

These projects, it said, are more than just infrastructural developments but are vibrant ecosystems designed to spur innovation, opportunity, and growth.

“ Stella Fubara’s comprehensive experience in dynamic markets positions her uniquely to advance these initiatives, ensuring they serve as catalysts for economic development not just in Nigeria, but across Africa.

“We are delighted to welcome Stella Fubara to Del-York Group, where her vast experience and strategic insight align seamlessly with our vision of being innovators and architects of the future. Stella’s expertise will be instrumental in developing first-of-their-kind infrastructure projects that not only bridge the creative industry, sports, and entertainment—the ultimate forms of soft diplomacy—but also provide the essential supporting infrastructure to ensure these initiatives thrive.

“ Her joining us marks a pivotal step in our commitment to transforming Nigeria and Africa’s landscape,” said Linus Idahosa, Chief Executive and Chairman of Del-York Group.

“With Stella Fubara’s extensive background in tourism development and international partnerships, we are poised to elevate tourism to a primary focus across all industries and sectors.

“Her leadership is key to our strategic vision of bringing the world to Nigeria, showcasing our rich cultural heritage and vibrant economic potential on a global stage,” Idahosa stressed.

 It stated that Fubara herself was enthusiastic about her new role, recognising the potential for transformative impact.

“I am thrilled to join Del-York Group at this pivotal time. The opportunity to apply the strategies and insights gained from Dubai’s evolution to the vibrant landscapes of Nigeria is truly exciting.

We aim to not only accelerate economic development but also to establish a sustainable model of growth that can be emulated throughout Africa,”  she noted.
