Logistics Middle East’s 25 most powerful CEOs-Hamdi Osman
As the senior vice president of FedEx in the Middle East, Africa and Indian subcontinent, the career growth of Hamdi Osman is well-known across the logistics sector.
Starting his occupation in 1978, Osman was first hired as a truck cleaner for FedEx, but made such an impression on management that a string of promotions were soon to follow, including positions as a courier (1979), operations manager in New Jersey (1982), senior operations manager (1985) and managing director for the US Northeast District (1990).
In September 1991, Hamdi moved to Dubai, taking on the role of managing director for the Middle East and Indian subcontinent, which was upgraded to vice president of operations for the Middle East, Indian subcontinent and Africa in 1997, and later to his current position.
With such a multitude of positions, it’s little wonder that Osman’s knowledge of the industry is considered second to none.
