FedEx senior vice president Hamdi Osman retires
Hamdi Osman has retired from his position as senior vice president of FedEx, according to a colleague close to the express professional.
Osman, who oversaw the Middle East, Indian subcontinent and Africa regions, was with the company for thirty years.
No further details are currently available on the former SVP's plans or possible replacement.
Osman was first hired as a truck cleaner for FedEx in the United States, but made such an impression on management that a string of promotions were soon to follow, including positions as a courier (1979), operations manager in New Jersey (1982), senior operations manager (1985) and managing director for the US Northeast District (1990).
In September 1991, Hamdi moved to Dubai, taking on the role of managing director for the Middle East and Indian subcontinent, which was upgraded to vice president of operations for the Middle East, Indian subcontinent and Africa in 1997 and later to his current position.
During his time at FedEx, the company was surveyed and ranked second in the UAE as one of the great places to work.
Osman was also ranked second in this year's Logistics Middle East Power 25 list, a ranking of the most influential figures in the Middle East logistics industry.
