CAREER-PRIVATE

"As I reflect on my experience of over 30 years in business and public service I can sum it up as follows: success comes from passion! Passion brings out the best in us! I can attribute our success to our people being passionate about everything we do. Equally important is sustainability; we build and acquire businesses with a long term view for sustainability. Finally, the volatile global markets we live in have taught us to be mindful of risk management; yet recognize the opportunities volatility brings." Hussain Al Nowais
