With the onboarding of AIMS Gulf earlier in 2020, AIMS International has officially established its presence in the region, further expanding its reach in the Middle East & Africa (MEA) region.
We are therefore pleased to announce our newest addition to the global AIMS community, Managing Partner, Kyriakos Kofinas who will be heading up our Dubai based office covering UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman, Qatar, and Jordan.
Kyriakos has 30 years of Executive Career experience in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. He held executive positions as Regional CEO, Business Director and Board Member in Consumer, Medical, Food, Retail, Sportswear, Luxury, Education, Energy/E-Mobility for companies like P&G, Adidas, Safilo, and local leading Retail and Energy groups. He is also a certified Executive Coach for CEOs, C-Suite, teams and business owners.
When asking Kyriakos about his approach and the value he can add to search assignments, he had the following to share: “I seek to understand the business and organisational needs before engaging candidates. I view the situation through both the eyes of the candidate and the client, thereby making sure the perfect match can be obtained. In AIMS we source candidates from across the region and the world, thanks to the AIMS Gulf team, AIMS Global Practice experts and to our Partners connected to more than 50 countries globally.”
Bernardo Entschev, President AIMS International says: “Firms doing business in the Gulf region can confront a number of challenges and an experienced partner that can help them overcome any difficulty is critical. Let’s take the U.A.E., as an example. The country offers a sophisticated, diverse market in many industries but you still have some peculiarities when doing business there. Dubai, is today, well positioned as the regional commercial hub supporting world-class trade exhibitions and conferences, presenting venues for multinational firms to reach buyers from throughout the Middle East, Africa and South and East Asia, so many companies from different industries are interested to establish there or expand in the region. AIMS International is thrilled to have a partner that can be the trusted partner and support these companies in the region.”
Karim Ahniche, Vice President EMEA and Managing Partner AIMS Morocco says: “I am very pleased to partner with AIMS Gulf and extend our MEA coverage in the Gulf region from our new base in Dubai, meeting the growing demand from global and regional clients for our Executive Search and Talent Management services.”
