POSTED BY Y Magazine

Supported by a diploma in business and an MBA, Ahmed al Nadabi has 18 years of extensive experience in customer service, sales and marketing. He moved to Muscat Electricity Distribution Company in 2007 to take charge of customer service and has gone on to handle multiple projects since then. Now co-managing the first electricity prepayment service in the region, he chats about his career while taking the new Genesis for a spin



Q: What drives you to success?

I can say it’s the passion to achieve, change and succeed. I don’t like routine and view every day as a new day with its own tests. I talk to people from around the globe every day and I like the new experiences. I am fond of challenges, so every now and then when I see things are moving very smoothly and nothing is changing, I try to bring something new in.

Q: Who or what has been your inspiration in your career?

I have learnt from my father; he built himself from nothing and I can say that he is my biggest inspiration. Apart from that, it’s the people who I have worked with who like to take challenges and love to achieve.

Q: What is your biggest career success to date?

I have been at Muscat Electricity Distribution Company (MEDC) for almost eight years now and I have worked on several projects to date. So I think this is an achievement, gaining the respect of people and their trust when handling several projects at once.

Q: What are your goals?

I want to be independent and to work for myself. I am very passionate about food and digital life. I am developing my own projects accordingly and I would love to own my own business.

Q:  Career-wise, where do you plan to be in 10 years’ time?

I want to be a successful businessman who can travel whenever he likes. I don’t want to spend my life working. I want to contribute to the development of this country, but it doesn’t have to be me working for an organisation to do that. I would love to see Oman digitalised, which is why I am trying my best to drive digital, online and mobile solutions in my personal and professional life.

Q:  What do you like about the Genesis, the premium series of Hyundai Motor Company?

The Hyundai Genesis is a luxurious car from inside and out. I like the interiors – they have a nice touch of elegance and class. From the dials on the dashboard to the other details in the car, it’s just amazing. The wide range of equipment impressed me; the car is loaded with features and some good technology. All in all, I feel like it is a good package and an exciting machine for people who really like cars.
