Dubai-based logistics company, Aramex, has appointed Bashar Obeid as Chief Executive Officer, succeeding Hussein Hachem.
Obeid joined the accounting and finance team at Aramex in 1993, and has since grown into several leadership positions including the company's Financial Controller, Group Financial Controller, and finally Aramex’s Chief Financial Officer. He was a member of the team that oversaw Aramex’s public offering on the NASDAQ stock exchange and later on the Dubai Financial Market (DFM).
“I am extremely honoured with this appointment,” said Obeid.
“We remain focused on growing the business further and moving forward with our strategy to transform Aramex into a technology-based enterprise.”
