Evolution is a natural process in any business and this includes the professionalization, modernization and corporatization of the business model.
On June 21st, 2021, Nehmeh’s Board of Directors appointed Raja V. Assili as its new Chief Executive Officer – the first non-family CEO – as a testament to the company’s commitment to both longevity and sustainability. Raja takes over from the great leadership of Emil A. Nehme, who has been instrumental in the rise and maturity of Nehmeh and whose legacy continues.
Raja is a driven senior executive bringing decades of experience to the company and has a proven record, and who previously led a publically listed group where he oversaw the performance and development of several subsidiaries and new businesses.
Simon A. Nehme, Chairman of the Board, added “Raja’s appointment is a clear reflection of the company’s current state: ready to take on the future and fired-up for a strong era of growth and successful projects. Nehmeh is poised for major expansion in the industrial sector and we’re excited what Raja’s unique experience in multiple sectors and global organizations can bring to our emerging markets.”
Raja stated: “I’m truly delighted to join an organization with a distinguished heritage, strong team, and forward-thinking shareholders. I look forward to building upon the tremendous achievements and progress over the last 65 years while preserving the values which have guided Nehmeh since its founding.”
