OSN strengthens KSA presence with new Riyadh office

OSN, the region’s premier entertainment company, has expanded its operations in the Kingdom with new headquarters in Riyadh.
The new OSN Saudi headquarters in the Al Olaya district includes an additional call center, underlining customer service at the heart of OSN’s operations.
Bandar Assiri, head of the General Commission for Audiovisual Media (GCAM), attended the ribbon cutting ceremony as guest of honor, during the official opening.
The new office supports OSN’s pursuit of “Platinum Employer” status in the local Nitaqat labor law system by placing strong emphasis on achieving the government’s goal of boosting the number of Saudi nationals in employment and further encouraging women in the workplace. The headquarters complies with all state federal requirements including segregated workspaces for female employees.
Assiri said: “It’s impressive to see the positive investment OSN is making in the Kingdom. The new headquarters and OSN’s focus on training and development demonstrate a strong commitment to Saudization. As a regulator, we not only focus on technical compliance, but we also support organizations in achieving compliance and we are very happy to be working closely with OSN.”
Bandar Al-Sunbuly, general manager of OSN Saudi Arabia, said: “The new offices are equipped with the latest technologies which will support our core business of sales, installations and customer care — making OSN one of the most progressive companies in the Kingdom. Additional benefits include bigger office space and commitment to training and development of staff, which will help us to grow our workforce and expand our business.”
The company recently undertook a recruitment drive, which resulted in the hiring of over 20 qualified female candidates following an influx of applications.
OSN has invested in expanding its retail network across the Kingdom with a footprint of 74 touch points serving residents in rural areas too. OSN has also in recent years opened new offices in Jeddah taking the total number of corporate offices in the Kingdom to three.

Genesis G70 arrives in the Middle East

Genesis has officially launched its compact G70 luxury sedan in Middle East markets, completing the brand’s core sedan lineup. Engineered as a dynamic car with strong appeal to younger customers and more enthusiastic drivers, the G70 joins the flagship G90 large sedan and mid-sized G80 and G80 Sport.

“Genesis has been very well received in the Middle East, and the Genesis G70 will be an exciting new chapter in our story,” said Altar Yilmaz, Genesis general manager for the Africa and Middle East region. “For many of our potential customers, this is the Genesis they have been waiting for.”

The arrival of the Genesis G70 in showrooms follows a previous display presentation at the Dubai International Motor Show in November 2017, where Genesis fielded a large number of inquiries about the car. With larger G80 and G90 models already growing a strong base of loyal customers, it is expected the compact model will add significantly to the brand’s appeal in the competitive Middle East luxury car market.

The G70 showcases the future direction of the Genesis brand’s “Athletic Elegance” design identity. 

“The G70’s interior is configured to prioritize an excellent user experience, with superb fit and finish throughout. The interior packaging reflects simplicity, with an emphasis on genuine functionality instead of gimmickry. A horizontal layout brings a sense of stability, with an intuitively laid-out switchgear and a comfortable, assertive sport steering wheel,” the carmaker said.

The G70 offers two powertrains in the Middle East region — a 3.3-liter V6 petrol turbo and 2.0-liter I4 petrol turbo.  The Lambda II 3.3-liter V6 turbo GDI engine is the heart of the enthusiast-focused G70 Sport, with 370 ps and maximum torque of 52.0 kg.m (510 N.m) 0 to 100 km/h acceleration in 4.7 seconds, and a top speed of 270 km/h.
