Exova’s CEO, Ian El-Mokadem, commented on Hicham’s appointment. He said: “This appointment is an important part of ensuring that the growth we have achieved in recent years is sustained. I am delighted to welcome Hicham to Exova. He brings a wealth of experience from working across the Middle East market, combined with a track record in delivering customer value. I know he will provide the energy and strategic and operational leadership to support our ambitions in the region”.

Hicham Abdallah added: “Exova is a growing global business that plays a critical role in ensuring the safety and quality of its customers’ products and services. Operating at the very heart of the region’s growth industries, I see huge potential in the services it offers as well as the opportunities to build market share”.
