Your story -career summary to date

Graduated with B.Sc in Chemical Engineering in May 2001, shortly in the same year I was joining the Fosroc family as a Specification Engineer based in Jeddah – Saudi Arabia where I’ve been responsible to work closely with key consultants and customers to drive the planned business strategies. Two years later, I was promoted to Regional Specification Manager where the area of responsibilities was expanded to a regional level and with more challenging objectives that include developing and managing Fosroc product specifications.

In January 2007, beside the current duties, I’ve been giving the opportunity to manage a key business area that is Fosroc Corrosion Solutions where I’ve exercised great focus in developing the business and creating a sustainable growth. Upon successful commissioning of the said assignments, I was assigned as a Business Development Manager in January 2010 where my main objectives were to develop key Business Segments beyond its current context and to pave the way for new product developments.

In February 2013, I was promoted to Marketing Manager – Saudi Fosroc.
