We believe in organic growth and promoting talent from within, motivating dedicated, hard-working employees to climb the corporate ladder and to in turn inspire others around them.

Speaking on his new role, Ali Aryan said: “It goes without saying that this is a significant milestone in my career, and a very proud moment for me as the first Bahraini to occupy this position. I have been working with DHL for over three decades, and proof that perseverance, loyalty and dedication can lead to excellent results”, he stated.
