ethiXbase, a leading global provider of anti-corruption compliance solutions, today announced that it has engaged Hassan Al-Helo to manage and lead its operations in the Middle East. This expansion complements the work ethiXbase anti-corruption and due diligence experts are already doing with their global client base, while also expanding on existing operations in Singapore, Malaysia, India, Kenya and the United States.
“The Middle East region is a key area as we witness an increased focus by both regulators and businesses on anti-corruption compliance” said Leas Bachatene, Chief Executive Officer, Ethical Alliance, by ethiXbase. “It is evident that Middle Eastern organisations are under increasing pressure, from government bodies, regulators and international business partners, to demonstrate anti-corruption policies and best practices”.
The recent announcement by General Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, regarding the creation of an anti-corruption unit, along with recent amendments made by Qatar and Saudi Arabia to tackle corruption and bribery, only serve to emphasise an increased focus on corporate governance, transparency and accountability in the Middle East.
“I am excited to bring ethiXbase anti-corruption programmes to the Middle East” said Hassan Al-Helo, Regional Director, Middle East, ethiXbase. “Having dedicated my career to this region I am looking forward to working closely with our Middle Eastern clients, to assist them in implementing anti-corruption best practices, increase transparency and most importantly, to protect their reputation”.
