Working in a travel industry may not seem to be the initial path Muhammad was taking after he had completed a year in Faculty of Economic Political Science and Faculty of Pharmacy in Syria and Moscow, respectively. However, after six months of working in a pharmacy in Syria back in 1995, he landed a job in Dubai Star Tourism which started his long and momentous career in travel and tourism.
In Dubai Star Tourism, he worked his way up and proved that sheer hard work, perseverance and positive attitude can definitely bring you success starting as a Russian Guide then an Airport Representative, later their Operations Officer. Handling operations clearly display his prowess in terms of people management, strategy development and quality work implementation. These traits had landed him the Operations Manager post in Desert Adventures Tourism. His 16-year stint in Desert Adventures Tourism gave him all the experience, skills and knowledge that prepared him for bigger responsibilities being the incumbent Director of Logistics for Desert Gate Tourism.
Operations and Logistics are his areas of expertise but what’s even tangible is how good he is in handling his people, treating them like family, consequently, earning their fierce loyalty in the process.
His job as the Director of Logistics invigorates him, thus fuelling him to do better each day. His passion on his work and his positivity brings great results. And like what Confucius once said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life,” Muhammad loves what he is doing and everything else follows.
