Many Patents Under His Belt

The top international businessman, Markus Giebel, holds the patent rights for over 20 innovations.

It is considered as a privilege by many to hold the patent rights for any innovation. Markus Geibel, the top international businessman based in Dubai, UAE, along with other team members, holds the patent rights for over 25 products, a no mean feat indeed!

Most of these patents are for products they had designed in relation to fibre optic cables. Some of these novel technologies for which Giebel was honoured with patents are fibre optic cable assembly for securing a fibre optic cable within an input port of a splice closure, monolithic ferrule for receiving and positioning multiple optical fibres and an optical fibre connector incorporating the same, low skew optical fibre ribbons, fibre optic cable assembly for interconnecting optical fibres within a receptacle mounted within the wall of an enclosure, pulling grip for pre-connectorised fibre optic cable, optical fibre breakaway apparatus and method and field-installable fibre optic ribbon connector and installation tool.

These innovations had led to vast improvements in industries related to fibre optic cables, which in turn had resulted in growth in all associated industries.

The CEO, Co-owner and Board Member of Eternity Medicine Institute, Dubai, Markus Alexander Giebel is one of the prime contributors to these patents. The German-born Giebel is a founder of Eternity Medicine Institute, which owns and franchises clinics practising preventive and predictive healthcare, known as age management.

He is also Managing Partner, and Board Member of Soliton Holding, a Dubai-based company operating in the areas of energy efficiency, real estate, healthcare, distribution and private equity with offices in Hong Kong and Germany too and Chairman of Aesthetics.

​Giebel has also performed as CEO of Deyaar Development PJSC (a leading, publicly traded, local and regional real estate developer and real estate services company based in Dubai and listed on the Dubai Financial Market) and senior executive and the youngest Vice President of Corning (a Fortune 500 firm in the US). He has also foundered several companies such as Vedera Capital, the leading investment boutique based in Dubai with global operations.

The 49-year-old has two Master's degrees, one in Business from Switzerland Business School and the other in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Munich.

Some of the accolades he has been presented with in recognition of his achievements are Middle East Emerging CEO Award and Middle East Leadership Award, from Deyaar Development PJSC in 2010, Business Award 2003 from the German Ministry of Economic Affairs and Corning Inventor of the Year awards in 2002 and 2001 and Corning Marketing Excellence Award in 2000, all from Corning Inc.
