Honeywell has announced the appointment of Khaled Hashem as its new Country President for Egypt.
According to Honeywell, the appointment marks a significant milestone for them, as the company continues to strengthen its presence in Egypt by leveraging its engineering talent and hardware and software capabilities to support the country’s industrial and economic growth ambitions.
Hashem will lead Honeywell’s local operations and will focus on driving growth strategies including localisation, technology innovation and Honeywell Operating System Gold (HOS Gold), to create best practice enterprises that are continuously and rapidly developing better products and experiences for customers.
