Umar started out at Heathrow as a young apprentice working with some of the largest freight forwarding businesses. Umar joined Aramex 7 years ago as a junior Business Development Manager and has grown throughout the business specialising in eCommerce. His roles have included business development across Europe into international markets, managing the express and eCommerce products and today he heads Aramex UK (including Air, Ocean, Land, Fulfilment and Express products).

When in a more active mood his hobbies include anything with a powerful engine and adrenaline invoking, such as his motorbike & flying lessons!
