Business solutions provider Transguard Group has announced that Saeed Al Marzouqi has recently been brought on board as its new Senior Director-Group Strategy and Sales. Al Marzouqi joins Transguard from Noor Bank, where he served as Vice President and Head of Institutional Sales for the Treasury Sales division for two years. A graduate of the London Institute of Banking and Finance, Al Marzouqi is the former Director of Global Market Sales, a position he held for more than three years at the National Bank of Abu Dhabi. He has vast experience in Global Asset Management and distribution for global market products across the GCC, MENA, Asia and global financial institutions.
“Saeed is a strategic hire who brings a wealth of experience to his new role,” said Dr. Abdulla Al Hashimi, Chief Executive Officer, Transguard Group. “His exceptional understanding of the UAE’s financial institutions and government offices are already setting the pace for the next phase of our relationships with these vital organisations.”
International growth is also on the horizon for Transguard in several sectors, and Al Marzouqi joins the group at a key time of foundational preparation. “One of Saeed’s strengths is his network of relationships with key stakeholders in sectors that are of great interest for us, such as oil and gas,” explained Greg Ward, Managing Director, Transguard Group. “His contributions are already helping to shape our next steps, with significant agreements in the final stages of negotiation. These will be announced in due course but their importance in expanding the footprint of Transguard is considerable.”
The announcement follows recent media coverage of Transguard’s support of the UAE’s field hospitals, which has been widely viewed as a significant statement about the Group’s ability to integrate with and facilitate key collaborations for the country’s government institutions. “Our presence in the field hospitals in a number of roles (including facilities management, security, hospitality and more) was amplified by our ability to provide a single-vendor, 360-degree solution that is not only cost-effective but practical,” explained Ward. “This success provides Saeed with an additional platform from which to sell our comprehensive, flexible suite of services.”
A UAE national who was raised and educated in Canada, Al Marzouqi has also been installed as key member of Transguard’s senior leadership team.
