Wael Hasan promoted to general manager of Raimondi Middle East

Veteran head of sales set to lead next phase of regional expansion with a strategic focus on the Saudi Arabian market

Raimondi Cranes have appointed Wael Hasan as General Manager, Raimondi Middle East. 

Based in Dubai, UAE, Hasan will report directly to Raimondi Group CEO, Luigi Maggioni and aims to fortify Raimondi’s presence in the GCC region by enhancing its operational structure, and caters to the boost in demand for the company’s tower cranes in the MENA region.

“Having served as Raimondi’s Commercial Director of the Middle Eastern subsidiary for the past seven years, Wael Hasan brings a wealth of regional experience and expertise to the role. With his exceptional leadership skills and hands-on team guidance, a keen understanding of market dynamics, and strong relationships, Wael has played a pivotal role in developing one of Raimondi’s key markets,” said Luigi Maggioni, CEO, Raimondi Cranes Group.

Under Hasan’s regional management, Raimondi Middle East has significantly expanded its client base, cultivated a robust network of partners in GCC countries, while significantly increasing the on-ground brand presence, specifically in key booming construction markets including UAE, Qatar and Saudi Arabia, said the firm in a statement.

His strategic approach has resulted in Raimondi participating in some of the region’s most relevant and prestigious projects: The Seef, one of Qatar’s most awaited residential developments, Deira Mall, one of the largest shopping centres in Dubai, and East Village, a district of Aljada megacity in Sharjah.

Over the past 36 months Raimondi Middle East has crossed the impressive milestone of deploying over 200 cranes regionally.

“As general manager, Wael will spearhead Raimondi’s effort to further strengthen its foothold in the GCC market, capitalizing on emerging opportunities and addressing evolving customer needs.

“This role positions him as a catalyst for Raimondi’s expansion strategy in the Middle East, specifically in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and will build on the company’s strong standing in UAE,” Maggioni continued, adding that the company’s Saudi expansion plan will be shared in the coming months.

“I am thrilled to support the Group vision by leading Raimondi Middle East into this next phase. I’m committed to leveraging our strengths, particularly the full-circle customer service and technical support functions, to capitalise on opportunities and deliver unparalleled value to our customers,” said Hasan.

To further flesh out the Middle East team structure, Hasan has appointed a new sales director to lead the segment across the region, confirmed Raimondi.

“The strategic appointment of Rinju Ravindran to the role of sales director comes in response to the surge in demand for heavy lifting equipment, fuelled by the rapid growth of infrastructure, residential, and mixed-use developments across the region,” commented Hasan.

With a focus on leveraging market opportunities, strengthening client relationships and sourcing new customers, Ravindran will be reporting Wael Hasan in his role as general manager.

Based between Riyadh and Dubai, Ravindran is a seasoned sector professional, armed with extensive experience from the heavy lifting industry. His career counts several sector relevant positions in companies from across the spectrum including manufacturing, fleet management, and more.

“Ravindran’s set of skills, market knowledge, and well-established network in the region will contribute toward achieving Raimondi Group vision of becoming the most responsive leader in heavy lifting solutions,” he concluded.
