Letter From The Chairman



At its very core, Malia Group’s success stems from a strong sense of belief in our people, systems, and decision-making. These pillars provide us with the foundation we need to realize projects, to expand into new territories and sectors, and to embrace – not fear – what lies ahead.

We live and work in challenging times. The region’s political and economic tectonic plates are shifting in a way not seen since 1945. As these changes come into play and while many businesses are looking to narrow their scope, we are in the process of expanding ours.

In the last couple of years, we have invested and set up operations in Algeria, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and more recently in the United Arab Emirates. Indeed, we have participated in the rebuilding of Iraq, through construction, first-of-its-kind hospitality projects, and in the distribution of goods and medicines across the country. We have become an employer of choice in the countries in which we operate, thus contributing to their economic wellbeing.

Looking back at the evolution of the Group in the last 80 years, we have shown the courage of turning belief in opportunities into realities benefitting all our stakeholders. Moreover, we have confidence in what the region has to offer and we are rigorous in our risk analysis. It has always borne fruit.

We have always prided ourselves on a family of employees that believe in the dream of Malia Group to keep on rising, whatever the circumstances. In effect, our Group culture nurtures and encourages the exchange of ideas, which in turn opens the door wide open for entrepreneurship and innovation.

What further distinguishes us from others is our added value: the passion, precision, and perceptiveness we bring to each partnership and project. We are all equal at the starting line of a marathon but it takes stamina, pace, and understanding of your strengths to make it to the finish line.

With a Board of Directors successfully in place, Malia Group will be transitioning to a more effective decentralized operation in the coming few years. This will benefit our Group in many ways; from empowering employees to undertake leadership positions, boosting performance and productivity, promoting and facilitating growth, to streamlining decision-making and ensuring sustainability even in volatile situations. At Malia Group, we always say that the best is not enough. This drives us to aim higher as we continue to exceed expectations.
