Power 40 2023: Alain Kaddoum, Managing Director of Savoye Middle East


The Managing Director of Savoye Middle East, Alain Kaddoum, has made a concerted effort to establish the business as a top supplier of software, robotics, and automation solutions to the supply chain sector in the region. Alain placed a high priority on his team’s capacity building because he genuinely believes that authentic growth originates from within.

His emphasis on employee empowerment through training and upskilling, combined with his visionary leadership style and the establishment of a work culture that valued and acknowledged hard work, laid the groundwork for Savoye’s success. He has over 15 years of professional experience and demonstrated leadership skills. In keeping with his success-driven methodology, he has also put together a formidable Middle Eastern professional and specialist team.

Savoye Middle East partnered with New East General Trading L.L.C., one of the area’s top distributors of auto parts, as part of its expansion plan. Modern automated solutions are being installed at New East’s Dubai Distribution Centre thanks to this partnership. Savoye’s state-of-the-art Autonomous Case-handling Robots (ACR) system, the first of its kind in the Middle East, is being integrated into the facility to fully automate it. Savoye’s introduction into the flourishing Saudi Arabian market is another outstanding achievement. The business has been moving forward with forming new alliances in the Kingdom; most recently, it signed a strategic agreement with CJ Logistics to supply a top-notch, fully automated fulfilment centre that will act as a global distribution hub for iHerb’s e-commerce operations in the area.
