Since his first job as an apprentice engineer in the UK over 20 years ago, Adam has worked his way from the shop floor, through middle management to leadership roles with a variety of UK companies and overseas organisations ranging from SMEs and government departments to multinational companies.

In 2008 Adam began to focus on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia while working as the regional manager of a global defence and security provider and supporting them to their first sale of a solution for the Saudi Ministry of Interior. His final role was working as the international BD director of a Saudi Ministry of Interior company responsible for implementing this solution on the ground.

In 2012 Adam co-founded AEI Saudi with the sole purpose of opening the Saudi market to foreign companies. From humble beginnings the 4 man joint Saudi British management team have grown the company to over 90 staff supporting clients from all over the world via multiple accommodation and office facilities throughout the Kingdom.

  1. Good afternoon Adam I'm based in the UK and last year joined a Russian based company in a business development role, which produces chemical cleaning solutions to the industrial sector to remove rust and deposits from metal without compromising the metal. They are planning to sell the product to industrial clients in the oil and gas, shipping and possibly military sectors. They are looking to set up a Middle East HQ in Saudi Arabia. I have connected them with a very close friend of mine who is a Saudi National and it has been agreed that a joint venture will be formed on a 50/50 basis. I just want to get some clarity about whether legally this is possible (having a 50/50 JV between a Saudi national and Russian/UK national, as I will be joining in the shareholding) and also the timescales for getting this done, as I have seen conflicting information, from 3-13 months to complete the whole set-up process. If you need any further information, please let me know. I look forward to hearing from you. Regards Ziad Question from Ziad Al-Rawi on 14/07/2019

  2. Hi Adam, we already have a partner in Saudi Arabia and we do business through them. however, we would like to explore options of direct supply to major retailers in Saudi Arabia not through the distributor. furthermore, our products requires registration in the SFDA, hence , looking for options if we can register directly in our company name and supply directly. another question about the possibilty of opening a bank account in our name? thanks Elvis Question from Elvis fernandes on 19/05/2019

  6. Dear Mr. Hosier, I represent Linakis Digital, an agency based in Athens, Greece, operating in the areas of website and mobile applications development, for medium to large organizations, in Greece and abroad. We are already working with a large customer in Saudi and we are thinking of establishing a local company, including a Bank account. Could you please advise me with regards to the requirements, process and cost? Sincerely, Vasilis Question from Vasilis Linakis on 13/02/2018

    Adam says:

    Generally we don’t advise setting up under the ‘SAGIA route’ (where a foreign company establishes a legal entity in Saudi), due to the costs involved (detailed below), unless there is really no other option (if you need to issue iqamas for example, or to work directly with the Saudi government). It is generally much easier to find a reputable partner that you trust to work with in Kingdom and develop a relationship with them going forward. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
    I’d be happy to send over more detail of the associated costs via email – please contact me at Freddie.blackman@aeisaudi.com and I will be in touch


    Kind regards,

    Freddie
