Ahmad Alangari, senior portfolio director at Takamol Holding

Ahmad Alangari is the senior portfolio director at Takamol Holding, where he is acting head of a large international labor market automation program known as Musaned. 

This electronic platform by the Ministry of Labor and Social Development has made it easier for domestic workers to gain e-visas, which receive instant approval once requirements are fulfilled. 

At the recent Saudi Recruitment, Labor and Support Services Forum and Exhibition in Riyadh, Alangari said: “Musaned is the umbrella of all programs, projects and initiatives that target improving the ecosystem of the domestic labor sector in Saudi Arabia. When we first started looking at this issue in order to improve it, we went directly to the second phase, the contractual process, because it has the biggest scope. What we did is basically automate the whole process, from manual to digital.”

Alangari earned his bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering from King Saud University. He also earned his master’s in business administration from Eastern Washington University. In 2017, he attended the University of California, Berkeley, Haas School of Business, where he received his product management certificate in executive education. 

Before joining Takamol Holding, Alangari was a client manager for Blitz, Inc. He was also a founder of ProCS, where he researched industry trends to identify new products and services, and built an innovative business model for the IT solutions company.

Houthis targetted civilian facility in Najran with an explosives-laden drone, says Arab Coalition

  • Houthis also fired two ballistic missiles toward the holy city of Makkah and Jeddah on Monday

RIYADH: Houthi militants had tried to hit a civilian facility in Saudi Arabia's southern border province of Najran with a drone carrying explosives, the Arab Coalition supporting Yemen's legitimate government said on Tuesday.
In a statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency (SPA), Colonel Turki Al-Maliki, the spokesman of the Saudi-led military coalition said the target was a vital facility.
"The Houthi-backed terrorist militia of Iran continues to carry out acts of terrorism that pose a real threat to regional and international security by targeting civilian objects and civilian facilities, as well as civilian citizens and residents of all nationalities," Al-Maliki said.

The statement did not mention casualties and gave no further details.

Earlier on Monday, Al-Maliki said Houthis fired two ballistic missiles toward the holy city of Makkah and Jeddah but both were shot down by Saudi air defense forces.

The Iran-backed Houthis have fired dozens of missiles at targets in Saudi Arabia, including the capital Riyadh, since the Arab Coalition intervened in 2015 to restore the government of President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, which was ousted in a Houthi coup.
