Flying High in Aviation Coatings

As the second member of staff to be recognised for going the Extra Mile, meet Ahmed Al-Attas! Ahmed has worked with PPG for over eight years and is currently the Technical Sales Manager for the Middle East.

His continuous embodiment of the PPG spirit in his work shines through and in his own words:

I approach the customer with the expression “you are the King” with best level of credibility and transparency.

Ahmed has a unique and shrewd strategy when it comes to working with valued clients:

I make sure that my customers are on the same page as I am in terms of understanding and strictly follow the rules of compliance.

Customers are always put at ease by Ahmed's strong technical abilities as he draws on his experience in aviation and MRO. He epitomises credibility, transparency and trust and emphasises the value of PPG's proposition for customers in terms of what we deliver, how we serve, how we care and how we protect and beautify the world.

Ahmed's track record in aviation coatings speaks for itself; during his time at PPG he has converted customers from competitors, sometimes coming up against entrenched relationships spanning decades, he's brought exciting, new clients into the fold as well as growing existing accounts introducing them to a wider range of PPG's product offering.

Ahmed also has a refreshing outlook on his work and the reason he believes his team does so well:

I think the cultural mix , acceptability and tolerance in our office is great. The opportunity for me to interact with 100s of nationalities at my capacity makes life very interesting. I’m proud to work for a company that has such strong values and where engagement is the top priority through strong culture and diversity.
