“Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other.” - Abraham Lincoln 2014 is off to a good start and I could not have been more proud of the Y.K. Almoayyed & Sons family. I must first highlight the commendable effort and teamwork of each and every staff member in making 2013 a profitable and successful year. We have stepped into this year stronger than ever. This magazine goes to prove our well-established position and capabilities, with plenty of events and initiatives worth a mention. As we believe it is important to give back to society in whatever way we can, I am delighted to say that Y.K. Almoayyed & Sons has formed a special team dedicated to local charities across town. We hope to help those in need and provide any support the society requires. Training and development has always been of prime importance in our organisation, and we had our teams working non-stop on various training programmes across the company. The interviews in this issue had us speaking to Thierry Guilhot of TG Lighting, a man whose true passion is lighting design; Sandeep Mathur, the creative mind of Almoayyed Motors; and K.R. Unny of Almoayyed Properties. The Nissan GT Academy is also back this year, for all the Gran Turismo lovers. This is your chance to make those racer dreams come true. Read all about it on page 11. I am especially pleased to share our history with everyone out there. My father has been my inspiration and my guide for as long as I can remember. Read about our journey on page 12 to find out how it all started. We shall remain committed to giving only our best and nothing less.

Face to Face

Golden Moments with

Thierry Guilhot Bringing in a new dimension to the Electrical Lighting concept. Tell us about your fascination for artistic lighting. How did it begin? 25 years ago, in 1989, I started working in my father’s company. I learnt everything I needed to know about lighting and I knew that this is what I wanted to do, this was my passion. I took keen interest in the field. This job is a mix between artistic and technical performances. Over years of training and guidance, I have learnt that to give your best to artistic lighting, you need to have a complete and thorough knowledge of the project and an open mind. This has been my passion for as long as I can remember and I love waking up to new and creative ideas of lighting. How do you see your first projects when you look back at them now? The first projects that I have worked on are very, very different from what I do now. Back in the day, lighting technology was very simple; you only used a maximum of three lamps to achieve your end result. But today, there needs to be a lot more technology and creativity involved. Some may be challenging, but that is what makes it all the more interesting. What is TG Lighting Design’s objective? TG Lighting Design’s main objective is to progress and contribute my expertise in the Middle East; after Bahrain, I hope to expand to Saudi Arabia and Qatar. I also want to change the external atmosphere, and the vision of the night with perfect lighting designs for hotels, villas, landscaping, and public infrastructures. I’m proud to say that Y.K. Almoayyed & Sons is helping me achieve this dream.

Tell us a about the joint venture between Almoayyed Contracting Group and TG Lighting Design. How has the journey been so far? Almoayyed Contracting Group and TG Lighting Design, France, had recently signed a joint venture agreement to help boost business opportunities in the field of lighting design and

Thierry Guilhot


Face to Face places were concerned about that sort of thing. But year after year, the knowledge and importance of lights has been successfully established and today, lighting is a main priority. What challenges do you tend to face? One major challenge I tend to face has to be working with low quality products. For the best result, we need to improve on the quality of the materials used to achieve the goal that has been envisioned. Another challenge is being able to propose lighting design concepts that use solar energy instead of electrical cables. What changes do you hope to bring about on the island? That will definitely be the increased use of LED lights. It is truly the best way for the future.

“For the perfect artistic creation of lighting, you need to understand the technical part.”

Working with colourful lights can be overwhelming for young designers. What would you advise them in that work aspect? Colour lighting is very important and interesting. My advice is to use less colours. Sometimes too much colour may destroy the entire lighting design. The best advice you have received? One of the things my father taught me was that before you start any project, you should always have a clear idea of what it is you wish to acheive and what the finished result will look like. And that the devil is in the detail; you should have full knowledge of the technical part

The fastest gamers then have the chance at a Regional Final event, before the very best head to Race Camp where they are assessed on their fitness, mental attitude and car control. Ultimately the winner gets a seat behind the wheel of a Nissan 370Z GT racecar. “GT Academy is a unique programme offering Playstation gamers the chance to move from virtual racing on Gran Turismo to the reality of being a professional racing driver,” said Paul Baker, General Manager at Y.K. Almoayyed & Sons’ Nissan in Bahrain. “The success of GT Academy around the world is demonstrated by the successful careers that the winners make in the competitive motor sport industry.

Demonstrating innovation as a unique concept and raw excitement among the thousands of competitors, GT Academy rightly expresses Nissan’s beliefs. East winner, Salman, has so far lived up to those high standards and we eagerly anticipate welcoming the Bahrain’s next competitors to the Race Camp.” “GT Academy Middle East has proved to be a huge success in its inaugural year in the region, 2013,” said Paul Baker. “Demonstrating innovation as a unique concept and raw excitement among the many thousands of competitors, GT Academy encapsulates Nissan’s beliefs. We urge anyone who dreams of grabbing the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take the track and compete and participate in this exciting programme.” In 2013, the GT Academy Middle East winner, Salman Al- Khater won his first race and has now driven the Dubai 24Hrs, which was held on January 9th. Previous winners of the GT Academy around the world are now regular racing drivers. The Bahrain leg of the competition was held at the Bahrain City Centre on the 25th and 26th of April 2014 and is being continued at the Nissan Sitra showroom until 31st May 2014 

After the hugely successful inaugural competition in 2013, Nissan GT Academy got racing fans screaming for more. Nissan GT Academy along with Sony PlayStation is coming back to the Middle East for 2014. After turning Salman Al-Khater who was once a mechanical engineer into a class winning race driver in his first attempt, GT Academy Middle East is now gearing up to offer the same opportunity for another motorsport maestro from the region. The success of the GT Academy has been outstanding. This unique programme has given PlayStation gamers the chance to move from virtual racing on Gran Turismo to the reality of actually becoming a professional racing driver. First launched in 2008, GT Academy was designed to identify gamers with the most natural racing talent in the virtual world, before working with them to transform them into real-life racing drivers.

Sheer Dynamism One-on-one with Almoayyed Motors’ General Manager, Sandeep Mathur.

Tell us a bit about yourself. I am a Mechanical Engineering graduate with a Postgraduate MBA in Marketing. My entire 23 years of work experience has been in the automotive industry, out of which, 16 years has been in the GCC: 8 years in Oman and 8 in Bahrain. Tell us about Bahrain’s automobile industry and Almoayyed Motors’ role in it? Bahrain has a very dynamic car market. Owning a vehicle in Bahrain is a necessity rather than a luxury, and with the changing economic dynamics, the demand still needs to be satisfied. As one of the major contributors, we exploit all opportunities that come our way. To be successful, it is important to stay ahead of the competition by investing in infrastructure and training programmes. Sandeep Mathur

Are you a car buff? If so, what is your dream car? Having spent 23 years of my professional life in the automotive industry, I am definitely a car buff. There is always so much to learn and implement. I love the Shelby for its sheer pace and grace and the Raptor for its bold and aggressive design. So my dream car would be a Shelby Raptor.

Almoayyed Motors Bahrain is one of the fastest growing dealerships in the GCC.

A moment in your career that you will always cherish. It’s been a very exciting journey for me in this great organization since 2005. I was fortunate to be given the responsibility to head the Ford division as General Manager. The dynamism involved in managing this division is what gets me out of bed each morning, excited to come to work, and get involved in the various aspects of managing people and processes that can provide the

May 2014

best service experience to our customers. What qualities should a good GM possess? Describe yourself as a boss. An efficient General Manager should be a dynamic role model for the team, and one who loves challenges. To constantly be on top of the game is what counts. The ability to revisit operational areas and take timely corrective measures to achieve the highest level of efficiency will be a testimony of performance. In my case, it is the sheer dynamism involved that keeps my adrenalin levels high. To continuously and consistently think of ways to maintain an ideal work environment where each member is provided with an adequate space for learning, development, and sharing is a challenge that I enjoy delivering. We have been able to successfully demonstrate this by registering a growth in market share even in the most turbulent periods. I strongly believe that the vision the business has set must be clearly understood by each employee. As a leader, my task is to set a clear direction towards achieving the company’s objectives by creating an environment that respects and rewards contributions made by the team. What is in store for Almoayyed Motors future? Almoayyed Motors Bahrain is one of the fastest growing dealerships in the GCC. The continuous investment in modern facilities, equipment and technology, together with staff training and development, underlines the commitment to provide a life-long relationship with the client throughout their vehicle ownership, by setting the highest levels of customer care, personalised service and satisfaction. Almoayyed Motors and Ford have big aspirations and will continue to prosper and grow. Ford’s tagline – “Go Further” aptly personifies the dynamism associated with the brand and signifies the belief of moving in a positive direction and always being a step ahead of others. We can proudly say that we are a big and bold brand, which can only “Go Further”

Tell us about your role at Almoayyed Properties. As a Manager, I deal with most aspects of Almoayyed Properties, and we have a dedicated finance team run under Mr. Vinod Nair. When you see consumers occupying properties that your team has worked so hard to put up is when you actually feel proud. I give utmost priority to attain maximum level of occupation at all our properties by ensuring that every existing and new tenant receives excellent services and amenities. What is your view of the real estate and property industry in Bahrain and where do you see it a

What sets Almoayyed Properties apart from the others in Bahrain? What sets us apart from other real estate companies in Bahrain is the Almoayyed name, the excellent service provided to the tenants, friendly approach of our staff and proper and timely maintenance.

Your proudest project with the organisation? My proudest project is Almoayyed Suites in Mahooz, a state of the art building with several facilities. What is your idea of a perfect work environment? An Ideal work environment can only be created while working as a team. Getting along with each other, maintaining good and friendly relationships with your superiors and subordinates is necessary in every organisation. Add motivated staff and team building activities to the mix and it’s an ideal work environment. Any surprises for Almoayyed Properties in the pipeline? Yes, we are always up to something new! There is a new warehouse project in Dubai, a new website is underway and special rent packages for some of the residential compounds

Tell us a little bit about your journey with Y.K Almoayyed & Sons. My journey with Y.K. Almoayyed & Sons began in 1992, and in 1994 with Almoayyed Properties, to be specific. I have had the privilege of working with three generations of Almoayyed Family. The guidance, inspiration and encouragement I have received from our late Chairman Mr. Yousuf Khalil Almoayyed and the other Directors has helped reach this position and become who I am today. I will always be grateful and thankful for every opportunity I have been given. For any property to attain the expected target, it needs to have a driving force behind it.
