Silah Gulf names new commercial officer
Manama, November 18, 2013
Bahrain-headquartered Silah Gulf has announced the appointment of Rami Sweis as its new chief commercial officer.
A contact centre and business process outsourcing (BPO) company, Silah was launched in 2009 as a joint venture in the Middle East region between UK-based Merchants and Bahrain's eGovernment Authority.
Sweis will be responsible for commercial activities including sales, marketing and business development across the Middle East region.
By managing strategic sales channels, he will focus on expanding the Silah portfolio of services to clients within the GCC region and other international markets, reported the Gulf Daily News, our sister publication.
Sweis' experience includes working in Saudi Arabia, Oman and the UAE across verticals including financial services, telecoms and BPO firms. He has also worked for global organisations such as General Electric, Morgan Stanley, Virgin Mobile and Accenture.
"With his vast experience, energetic approach and pursuit of excellence I am confident that Rami will be instrumental in achieving Silah's vision for international growth and leadership position in the region," remarked Silah chief executive Ricardo Langwieder-Goerner.
"Being a key driver for the growth of the BPO industry in Jordan, Rami brings with him a wealth of knowledge that will be invaluable for positioning Silah and Bahrain as the BPO hotspot for the GCC region," he noted.
Sweis said he hoped to "positively contribute to the expansion of the company into newer markets and territories as well as help in the growth of the industry as a whole."
"The BPO industry is still in its maturing phase in the region and Silah with its leadership position in Bahrain will definitely influence the development in this region," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
