“Khaldoun’s valuable contribution towards DSI’s remarkable growth continues to inspire us and have laid the foundation of our future growth path. We are pleased to have him continue to lend his expertise and wisdom as the Vice-Chairman in guiding the company during and after the transition to the new management structure. 

I am confident that Wael Allan’s vision and commitment will help DSI emerge stronger, leaner and more efficient through these challenging times, drawing on his considerable 26 years of global engineering and management experience.” said Majid Al Ghurair, Chairman of DSI PJSC.

I believe that our fundamentals remain robust and our clients and partners continue to value our experience and pioneering innovations in our key markets. I would like to wish Wael and our employees well for the exciting period ahead, and thank our board, our investors and stakeholders and our employees for their support and dedication which inspired and empowered our growth and success.”
