DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – (BUSINESS WIRE) – Sarah Saha joined Emex, an ESG and EHS software company, as the regional CEO of MENA & APAC.
Saha will lead the expansion of the business in the Middle East and North Africa and Asia-Pacific, which are both key growth areas for Emex.
Saha, who reports directly to Richard Wall, the global CEO, will be responsible for driving the acquisition of regional partners, development, and growth of the company. This will include an innovation initiative to expand the Emex product and service range. She will also assist existing Emex customers in the region to optimise business performance, automate complicated processes, and manage compliance.
Saha was previously recognized by the UAE’s Green Sheikh, His Royal Highness Sheikh Abdulaziz Bin Ali Al Nuaimi for her sustainability efforts in Dubai, focusing on the reduction of plastic use. Saha worked previously at The Hut Group PLC and KG&CO Hospitality.
Sarah Saha, Emex’s regional CEO for MENA & APAC, stated: “After just over a decade in the UK as Global Group Chief of Health, Safety & Environment at THG, it’s great to be back in Dubai and work in the MENA region. There is a growing focus on EHS and Sustainability in the region, as well as tackling climate change. “The MENA, APAC and CIS regions are at the forefront of innovation and technology. While we are already using an innovative approach to ESG, there is still much to be discovered and explored. It’s a pleasure coming back to Dubai and to embrace the diversity and culture, especially with the Dubai Expo happening through March next year.
“This makes it an exciting moment to bring Emex to the region to support innovation and empower businesses to optimise sustainability strategies. I look forward to being a part of these business communities that push the boundaries of sustainability excellence.
Richard Wall, global CEO and cofounder of Emex, said: “Sarah makes a great addition to our global leadership team. Her passion for ESG, experience in the MENA region and global EHS market make her an ideal candidate for the role. She is also an excellent spokesperson for Emex in the region.
“Sustainability quickly rose to the top of both the corporate and economic agendas. But you can’t control what you don’t measure. For business leaders to make informed decisions and make sustainable decisions, they need accurate data. We are expanding our reach and focusing on the MENA/APAC regions with the creation and promotion of the regional CEO position.
Global Emex plans to add 200 more people by 2022. Sarah Saha and the executive team look forward establishing their presence in the MENA region through the opening of an office at the UAE in the next twelve month.
