Under his leadership, he will also continue the company’s relentless efforts to achieve higher levels of customer satisfaction and service. Additionally, Kawam will lead in steadily building and expanding GES’ business to create new opportunities and establish a positive work environment for all employees.

Commenting on this, Kawam said: “I wish to express my gratitude to the board of directors and Globe Express Services family for entrusting me with this tremendously challenging and exciting opportunity assuring that I will take the responsibilities of being the president and CEO of Globe Express Services very seriously. It’s been a privilege to work for the Group for over 20 years and I am confident that we can together achieve success and take the company to the next level.”
