Al Masaood Tyres, Batteries & Accessories Summit with Bridgestone

27 February 2023

We had the pleasure last week of meeting Mr. Laurent Dartoux, CEO and President of Bridgestone EMIA on his visit to the UAE. Mr. Dartoux was accompanied by Mr. Daniel Giroud, Chief Sales Officer of Bridgestone EMIA, Mr. Wim Van Der Meersch, Chief Human Resources Officer of Bridgestone EMIA, Mr. Jacques Fourie, VP of Bridgestone MEA, Mr. Anand Hegde, Commercial PBU of Bridgestone MEA, and Mr. Samuel Massard, Branch Manager Gulf.


Mr. Ahmed Rahma Al Masaood, our Director, led Al Masaood team, which included Mr. Salah Adib, Mr. Walid Al Mansy and myself.

The meeting was more of a celebration of a long and fruitful relationship. For those of you who are aware of the history, next year we will celebrate 50 years of partnership with Bridgestone, and the spirit of this great partnership underpinned an excellent & friendly meeting.

 Both team leaders shared insights into the future and strategies concerning the Tyres Business worldwide.


I was delighted with the words of praise from Mr. Dartoux and his colleagues towards Al Masaood and our TBA Division - Well Done Salah and his team.
