Identify new business/market opportunities. Proven leader with excellent skills and a team player. CORE SKILLS

NOTABLE ACCOMPLISHMENTS

During my tenure in ‘Thomson Reuters’; I was given the sole responsibility of handling the, ‘My Account’ project. Effectively worked with our Research & Development, Marketing and Information Technology department to make sure there were absolutely minimum setbacks and maximum breakthrough in the implementation of our new platform. Which would make it easier for clients; especially huge corporates to move online. Had to educate and train a team of 30 members during the whole process and making sure our goal was achieved at the end of the year. Regions covered during this course were (AMERS, EMEA, Australia & New Zealand)

While my time in ‘Al Jassim’; they gave me the opportunity to implement the SOA for the credit controlling department and introduce matrix system, which were missing before. Since certain things align with the policies and procedures I had to closely work with the legal department. Also this required to put in place the delegation of authority. Had to manage & train a team during this course of time.

Latest accomplishment has been with ‘Exova’. Here since we were a testing lab, we had to deal with a lot of physical reports. But since most of our clients have been dealing with us for many years, moving onto electronic reporting meant challenging. This had to be revised in our policies as it’s also important to convince the existing clients and have them resign the contracts. Had to closely work with the Sales heads, Information Technology & Legal. Also another notable thing was introducing to file legal against our debtors; as this required a lot of management convincing and setting up the process. Managed and handled teams across Middle East.
