Antia's lengthy career is marked by more than 15 years in the hospitality industry, 8 years in the banking profession, and about 4 years in the infrastructure business. She started her career in Dubai from 1993 to 1995, when Dubai was slowly starting its development plan for the United Arab Emirates. Antia worked as an Executive Assistant with Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club, a leisure organization under HHE Properties. She had the opportunity to work alongside an array of visionary colleagues and bosses, where she learned how to work in multicultural environments and be mentored and hone her leadership skills. She was involved in maintaining senior payroll and preparing budgets and business forecasts, being under the Chief Financial Officer of the company at that time.
In 2007, Antia was appointed Senior HR Administrator at Dubai Golf, where she was tasked with the Human Resources strategic function of hiring & firing, budgeting, employee benefits, employee relations & development. She continuously improved her craft to master the Human Resources cycle under the tutelage of the late Ms. Ramani Gurusinghe, the former Director of Human Resources at Dubai Golf.
Antia continues to work and serve with Dubai Golf with its recent expansion, now managing 6 golf clubs, Topgolf, and a sausage factory. Her tasks and scope of responsibilities have widened as well. She currently covers and liaises with Abu Dhabi Golf Clubs as part of her function.
