PROVEN, an outsourcing organisation in the Middle East, announced that Omer Saleem has been elevated to the role of Chief Executive Officer, following a seven year run as Chief Financial Officer and Deputy CEO. As CEO, he is tasked with continuing PROVEN’s journey into the consulting and advisory space, while increasing its footprint across the GCC region.
In his previous role as CFO, Omer was initially tasked with addressing the company’s various growing pains, while streamlining the financial side of the business. As part of the latter process, he became involved in other areas of the business. Through his efforts, four business lines have been spun off into standalone businesses, and the company, has undergone significant horizontal and vertical expansion.
Over the last seven years, Omer has contributed to improving the company’s core business by a factor of three, while taking the staff count from 40 in 2016 to over 120 team members adding value from eight different global locations today.
As CEO, Omer will also be responsible for expanding the company’s service offerings higher up in the corporate services value chain by leveraging the powerful base it has built in recent years. This will enable PROVEN’s clients to operate in a more efficient and compliant manner, considering the dynamic GCC business landscape. Another major goal for Omer is to infuse technology into PROVEN’s service delivery model to enable a more interactive client journey for customers and transparency for partners.
PROVEN provides corporate services helping businesses kick-off operations in Saudi Arabia, find efficiencies, and stay compliant with an evolving regulatory climate. The company has enabled its clients to operate more fluidly in the booming Saudi market, and garner maximum value from their operations for the past nine years.Click below to share this article
