Othman the new man at the top
Aramex has named Othman Aljeda as its new CEO, replacing Bashar Obeid who submitted his resignation to the board on 29 April, saying that it had been his "pleasure and privilege to be part of the Aramex family for the past 28 years". Obeid will work closely with Aljeda to support a smooth transition of responsibilities.
Aljeda joined Aramex in 1994, and since then stepped up in several leadership roles to strengthen the company’s business in the GCC, Asia, and North America & Europe.
Eleven months ago, in addition to his responsibilities as Regional CEO in Europe, North America and Asia, he also served as Interim COO for six months, "ensuring stability and continuity through a challenging, unprecedented pandemic," as the Dubai-based logistics services provider said. (ah)
