Swisslog has appointed a new regional sales manager for its solutions in robot and data-based automation in the Middle East.
The appointment comes in response to the steady increase in demand for software and robotics solutions, designed to address the challenges of tomorrow, the company said in a release.
Anis El Shaar joins Swisslog as regional sales manager for the Middle East to oversee its regional business operations with a focus on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
El Shaar is responsible for supporting new clients through the complete sales cycle as well as maintaining the relationships with existing accounts.
Bringing decades of experience in identifying and penetrating new markets, El Shaar’s core responsibilities also include the development and implementation of innovative automated warehouses with all related processes.
“Both the UAE and Saudi Arabia are important markets for Swisslog, with plenty of opportunity for growth,” said Alain Kaddoum, general manager for Swisslog Middle East. “With Anis’ appointment, we can now focus completely on our customers here.”
“Anis brings to the table a proven track record of successfully implemented large-scale automation projects for customers, ideally positioning us to meet the evolving demands of the marketplace. We welcome him to the Swisslog family,” he added.
In addition to the appointment of Anis, Swisslog has also made rapid advances in the software-driven integration of advanced warehouse technologies, with a number of innovations aimed at embedding efficiency, intelligence and competitive advantages into warehouse logistics operations.
