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.
