Commenting on his appointment, Hashem shared: ""Egypt's economy has continued to expand over the last few years, with the IMF forecasting GDP growth of roughly 4.4% for 2016, so I am especially delighted to be joining Honeywell at such an important time in the company's - and the country's - development."
He added: "Honeywell is a global technology leader and has the right experience and product offering to support the growth ambitions of the Egyptian people, government and businesses. I look forward to playing my part in supporting the country's journey to sit at the leading-edge of innovation in the Middle East."
Boasting over 30 years of experience in the Egypt market, Hashem previously held the position of country manager at GE Egypt, and has worked closely with the Egyptian Electricity Holding Company on a number of key energy projects.
Norm Gilsdorf, president for Honeywell's Middle East, Russia and Central Asia regions, shared: "Honeywell is privileged to work with some of Egypt's key government and private entities, helping them to deliver smarter, safer and more productive operations. Khaled will work to strengthen these existing partnerships, as well as create additional opportunities to bring our unique value proposition to new sectors."
