Lighting design and supply specialist Light Link has opened an office in Saudi Arabia after several major project wins, including commercial premises for the pharmaceutical giant Pfizer and global management consulting firm Korn Ferry. In addition, Johnny Said has been appointed as Country Manager for KSA.
Johnny has 20 years of experience delivering projects and managing teams across the Middle East. Most recently, he worked for a large interior contractor for 16 years, where his remit covered the UAE, Egypt, Jordan, Oman and Kuwait, before being based full-time in Jeddah.
Jaspal Bal, Founder and Managing Director of Light Link, said: “Over the past 18 months, we have been building on our foundations in the UAE with an increasing number of regional projects. We have seen significant demand in Saudi Arabia and 2023 is the right time to invest in developing those opportunities. We’re extremely pleased to welcome Johnny to the team and have him take the lead, supported by the team in Dubai, as we grow our presence over the coming months.”
Johnny Said, KSA Country Manager, added: “Light Link’s reputation is based on high-quality products and excellent service standards and its capabilities have been quickly recognised in the Kingdom. I am looking forward to working with the team to expand our influence in such a rapidly growing, future-focused market.”
