APM Terminals Bahrain, the operator of Khalifa Bin Salman Port, announced that the general manager of its commercial division recently completed the first part of an international management programme in Copenhagen.
Yousif Sanad was selected by APM Terminals headquarters in The Hague to participate in the executive programme.
The MAGNUM management programme is developed in collaboration with ESADE Business School, a leading Spanish business school, and is aimed at accelerating the careers of the general managers at APM Terminals, worldwide.
The first of the modules commenced on May 12 in Copenhagen. As part of the programme, Sanad will also attend courses in Los Angeles and The Hague later this year.
The course provided participants with a unique global perspective combined with a general management focus, thus giving each participant an edge in preparing to act as effective and successful leaders, in the ever-changing global business environment that APM Terminals operates.
Sanad, 27, is among 30 global General Managers selected by APM Terminals to take part in the MAGNUM program, a company statement said.
Marco Neelsen, chief executive officer, APM Terminals Bahrain said, “Yousif is a shining example of a young talented leader possessing the qualities sought globally: creativity, an open-minded approach and a relationship builder. Furthermore, Yousif, who I have worked with for over two years, has a sharp eye for business, a valuable quality in today’s competitive market.
“We are proud of Yousif’s achievements and believe he will be a valuable player in the MAGNUM program, demonstrating the talent that Bahrain has to offer the business world. Attending such a prestigious management course will not only assist Yousif to acquire an international qualification but will also contribute in further augmenting his professional capabilities in the maritime industry.
“Bahraini managers represent 54 per cent (19 out of 35) of managers at our office in Bahrain, and Yousif stands out as the one with the most potential for a truly global leadership role,” Neelsen added. – TradeArabia News Service
