Yogesh Mehta

Yogesh Mehta

Company:

Petrochem Middle East

Designation:

CEO

Petrochem is the largest chemical distributor in the Middle East and Africa and 11th in the world, with offices worldwide and state-of-the-art chemical storage terminals in the UAE, Egypt and Saudi Arabia. The company grew from strength to strength, and it’s now a billion-dollar firm that exports over 1,000,000 metric tonnes (MT) of products worldwide, with revenues in excess of $1.4bn in 2018.

No mean achievement for a person who came to Dubai in 1990 on “hope and a prayer” as Mehta likes to share with all those who ask him about this journey and the success he enjoys.

“Hard work always pays but that is never enough, one needs total dedication and an evolving strategy to stay ahead in the everchanging landscape,” he says.

A Harvard Business School alumnus, he’s also popular on the speaker circuit, both in the UAE and internationally.
