A fan of luxury cars, fashion brands and a keen horse-rider, Safaee has traveled around the world and forged opportunities for himself through networking and building rapport with his clients. Frequently flying between Dubai and London, Safaee knows a thing or two about making businesses succeed.
As an operator, Safaee works with his team to find a common goal and a balance that enables his company to expand, while providing a high level of service to his existing customers.
Offering a host of data security solutions for companies around the world, Safaee’s business has established itself by providing a tailored service and understanding the cultural differences between countries and their workforces.
Some of his tips on making a business thrive include finding a work-life balance, not giving up, staying true to one’s values and getting back up when you find obstacles and challenges.
After so many setbacks throughout his career, Safaee has managed to come back stronger, and continues to adapt to the emerging trends in the marketplace.
For Safaee, business is sacred, but it’s also important to remember to have balance in life, and to enjoy what it has to offer. For that reason, he has managed to make his company thrive.
