Taqeef CEO will be elected as the new president of Eurovent Middle East
The transition in presidency is necessitated by a change of work assignment of the first and long-time president, Brian Suggitt. Suggitt has led the association since its establishment, having earned respect and admiration from the industry for his integrity, commitment and amiability. He is succeeded by the current vice president Tariq Al Ghussein, CEO of Taqeef, one of the region’s foremost cooling and energy solutions providers.
Suggitt shared: “I am leaving the association with deep regret, but also with great appreciation for the successful development we have achieved over the past years. From the initial idea of coming together and joining forces with competitors and peers to better serve the region with knowledge, education and expertise, to seeing the active approach and mutual respect among our members is really amazing. I am proud and grateful for having been a part of this and honoured by serving the interests of our industry.”
Al Ghussein, incoming president added: “Under Brian’s stewardship, the association has grown in numbers and stature, and contributed to many of the most pressing industry issues affecting our businesses and our region. Brian’s energy and insights will be sorely missed, however, I’m confident we can build on the great work that’s already been achieved and continue to push integrity and best practice in our industry. These are exciting times for our membership and our region, and Eurovent Middle East’s work on Energy Efficiency, better IAQ, transparency and protocols has never been more relevant.
Markus Lattner, managing director of Eurovent Middle East continued: “I would like to thank Brian for his support and encouragement over the past four years. It has been an honour and a great pleasure to work with him as president. With Tariq Al Ghussein we have an excellent successor, who supported the idea of an industry association from the beginning. Tariq is a well-known and respected business leader and we are all looking forward to continue exceptional work with him as president.”
