Why recruitment? 

I love dealing with people and in recruitment it’s all about people, making sure that you find the perfect match for client and candidate alike. 


Industry Insights: 

As of the latest available information, the Venture Capital landscape in the GCC region is experiencing significant growth. Fueled by government initiatives, a burgeoning startup ecosystem, and increased investor interest, the GCC countries are witnessing a transformation in their approach to innovation and entrepreneurship. 


What is your approach to recruitment / executive search? 

I like to dive deep to find out about what both parties really want to get out of this project. Whether from the candidate side to get more coverage and a larger deal flow investing a certain industry or from the clients perspective to have a candidate that is going to fit in with their culture and the make up of thir work environment as well as being someone who likes to be hands on and focuses on the longterm. In my eyes it’s important to find what makes each party tick.
