Welcome on board, Adel!

We are pleased to announce some exciting news in finalizing our JV company setup in Saudi Arabia: Adel El Said has been hired as Operations Director and started with us on 1 January 2021.

Adel joins us from ATCO Group, where he most recently held the position of Managing Director of East & West Express, a Dammam-based subsidiary of ATCO Group, and oversaw ATCO’s major industrial projects both commercially and operationally.

Before that, Adel lived in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain and established and ran Panalpina’s Saudi Arabian office and built up their local project portfolio and client network. Adel’s hands-on work approach and high operational and commercial skill-set helped him to secure major logistics contracts and to fully familiarize with the Saudi Arabian business habits.

Adel holds the German and Egyptian citizenship and speaks English, German, Arabic and French fluently.

In his new role at Bertling, Adel will play an important role in introducing our JV’s competencies and service offerings to the market in close collaboration with our local partner Al-Khaldi. In the beginning, his main focus will be to explore the many business opportunities we have identified already in KSA.

We have sincere trust in Adel expertise and capabilities and think he will fit nicely to our local JV team in Saudi Arabia and are sure that he will be able to add great value to our local service offerings.
