Oman’s largest cement manufacturer, Raysut Cement Company on Sunday announced a significant corporate revamp bringing on board young leaders from within the organisation to new roles at key positions of the top management.
In a statement, the Muscat Securities Market-listed company said bringing new leaders to steer the company has been done at a time of crucial regional and global expansion of Raysut Cement into new and diverse markets of Eastern Europe, East Africa and Asia, which necessitates strong and competent young managers who can complement the company’s vision to be one of the leading global cement players.
“We are confident that the new young leaders will bring in fresh perspectives to Raysut Cement’s growth and help catalyse the company’s target to raise output to 10mn tonnes by 2022 and to eventually scale it up to 20mn tonnes in the near future,” Joey Ghose, chief executive officer of Raysut Cement said.
As part of the management restructuring, Salim Ahmed Alawi al Ibrahim has been promoted as acting deputy group CEO, who will now support and complement the leadership of Raysut Cement’s group CEO. Ibrahim has been with Raysut Cement since 2014 and has been contributing significantly to the company in his earlier role in the sales department.
Additionally, Mohammed Ahmed Aideed has been promoted as the acting general manager of Raysut Cement. Aideed has been working with Raysut Cement since 2009, starting his career as a sales representative and moving up to managerial positions subsequently.
“The two young professionals are taking on the new mantles at a time when Raysut Cement has already expanded its footprints into new markets and they will have a robust role to play in this dynamic business scenario,” Ghose added.
