Leviton has announced the appointment of Shady Youssef to Managing Director, Leviton Middle East.
Shady started the new position at the beginning of October, replacing Aldo Strawbridge, who will be retiring effective December 31 2018 but will remain until the end of the year to support Shady to ensure a smooth transition. Following this, Aldo will be returning to his home in the UK.
Leviton Middle East was established in 2008, with a focus on networking and energy management solutions. With the acquisition of LED lighting company JCC, based in the UK, the Middle East team quickly established presence in the lighting market. With this appointment, Shady is expected to continue to build and expand the business, driving the best solutions and service to its customers.
“We are excited to have Shady’s leadership to further build and develop the Leviton Middle East team,” said Bruno Filio, Leviton Vice President of International Sales. “With over 12 years of professional experience in the Middle East in network solutions and data centres for major industrial and commercial projects, we look forward to having Shady’s expertise and leadership to continue to drive overall growth and success for Leviton Middle East.”
Shady’s previous role as LME’s Regional Business Development Manager has been instrumental in growing and developing the Leviton brand, creating awareness and delivering strategic transformation across the regions of Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt in the Middle East.
