The Dubai-based remanufacturer has hired more team members than it set out to.
The company’s CEO, Sassan Dieter Khatib-Shahidi, commented on LinkedIn on his company’s announcement earlier this summer that it was “hiring” and looking for “a total of nine sales representatives to join our offices in Dubai, Sharjah, Jebel Ali, and Abu Dhabi, as well as our international sales team”. In more detail, the company added that it was looking for “one sales team leader” for Jebel Ali, “one call centre manager” for Dubai, and “one sales manager” for Abu Dhabi.
Khatib-Shahidi had noted in his original post that he would be “happy to receive any CVs, referrals [or] ideas” from his network, and in his latest update noted that “within 27 days, we appointed 15 new team members in our sales organisation”, adding that this was a “huge run, great success, and thank you to all who made it happen”.
The Recycler interviewed Khatib-Shahidi earlier this year about the company’s plans to grow, the company’s history and its perceptions of the challenges ahead, goals it wants to achieve and how its newly-formed East African subsidiary would do business in the African markets.
In our interview, he stated that he had “three main goals” for GIT in 2016, including solidifying “our relationship with existing customers, and keep growing our market share in our domestic market, while opening new markets abroad”. Khatib-Shahidi also noted that the remanufacturer was aiming to operate in “at least one more market in addition to Kenya”, and “penetrate more markets with our exclusive trade brand within our designated territory, the Middle East and Africa”.
