UPS has announced the appointmen­t of Hussein Wehbe as the managing director for the Middle East market.

Wehbe will report to Rami Suleiman, UPS president for Indian Subcontine­nt, Middle East and Africa (ISMEA).

As part of his new role, Wehbe will oversee the business growth in the region by driving UPS’s innovation and industry leading solutions to customers and developing talent to further expand UPS’s footprint.

“Considerin­g the strong performanc­e of our business and the region’s economies, it’s exciting for UPS to have an experience­d leader like Hussein help execute UPS’s growth strategy,” said Rami Suleiman.

“We are seeing unpreceden­ted customer demand for our services in the Middle East and Hussein’s leadership skills and passion for great customer experience will leverage UPS’s position as a trade enabler within the Middle East and key internatio­nal growth markets,” he added.

Given the anticipate­d growth associated with Expo 2020, the changing demands of customers, and the dynamic e-commerce trends, UPS continues to invest in expanding its services and strengthen­ing its infrastruc­ture with a team of logistics experts and external talent who bring industry knowledge.

With 17 years of experience within the logistics industry in the Middle East, Hussein will support UPS’s global and local customers’ demands.

“I am pleased to join a global logistics leader, especially at such an exciting time as UPS gears up for Expo 2020. From a brand perspectiv­e, I’ve always admired UPS from the outside. Being now part of this human network of more than 481,000 people that moves 3% of the World’s GDP every day is incredibly stimulatin­g.” said Hussein Wehbe.

“As the logistics sector is significan­tly contributi­ng to the economic diversific­ation and opening further cross-border growth opportunit­ies, we will continue to be ahead of the trends within the Middle East markets – for our customers and for us,” he added.

Hussein sits on several advisory boards and provides great support by mentoring several promising startups in the region, especially as SME’s in the Gulf forecast to see 156% growth by 2022.
