AEI is fast approaching its 3rd birthday and none of us can quite believe how quickly 2015 has passed. It has certainly been another excellent year for the business and the AEI team have achieved many milestones over the course of the last 12 months.
Notably the Diplomatic Quarter Residency opened and has proved so popular it is fully booked for 2016! We opened our first location in Jeddah and we were also delighted to have our first US Government contract renewed and extended for the continued support of the National Guard’s Apache Pilot Training Programme. Helping to deliver this growth the AEI team has doubled in size to 36 full time employees based in Riyadh, Jeddah and the UK.
We welcomed John Lockwood as our Head of Consulting and the Consulting Practice has really had an excellent year; highlights included hosting a visit of the New Zealand Prime Minister, being invited as a Key Note Speaker at the DSEI 2015, agreeing to become the SBJBC’s delivery partner in Kingdom and being featured in the UK’s “The Times” national newspaper.
We have now served 250 clients with their market entry and support service requirements in the Kingdom and the outlook for 2016 looks very positive indeed.
Of course, most important to this success has been you – our clients, staff, partners and ever patient families! Once again we’d like to say an enormous THANK YOU to one and all. For those celebrating we wish you a very merry Christmas and to everyone we wish you all the best for 2016.
