Who holds the power in Middle East logistics?

 

To celebrate the start of 2010, we’ve published the inaugural Logistics Middle East Power 25 List, which ranks the most influential CEOs of logistics companies in the region. Taking pole position this year is Fadi Ghandour, the chief executive officer and founder of Aramex , who has transformed his company into one of the industry’s biggest success stories, with increasing profits being reported even during the global recession. Ghandour, who graces the print edition's cover this month, celebrated this achievement by providing Logistics Middle East with an exclusive insight into the various facets of his leadership style, including a guarantee to employees that zero redundancies would occur during the current economic crisis.

A variety of figureheads have followed Ghandour in the power list, from high-profile individuals such as Elias Monem from Agility , to inspirational figures such as Hamdi Osman from FedEx, to the heads of relative newcomers to the industry, such as Brain McHale from Wared Logistics.

 

Congratulations to each of the 25 executives that were featured in the power list. Unfortunately, with such a limited number to work with, you may notice a few surprising omissions this year. In fact, our editorial team had to make some truly difficult decisions and we look forward to re-evaluating the rankings in 2011, based on activities in the forthcoming year.

 

Of course, we know that controversy is often associated with such lists and I’m sure our readers will have their own points-of-view on each position. This is natural and we would love to hear your opinions. A dedicated channel has been opened on our sister website, www.ArabianSupplyChain.com , where you are invited to agree or disagree with the list. Who do you think is the Middle East’s most influential CEO of a logistics company and why? The best comments will be published in next month's print edition of Logistics Middle East, so please get in touch.
