CORPORATE VISION / July 2017 9 Only as Successful as Your Team Name: Dr. Khaled El-Sheikh Web Address: Address: Level 1, 87-89 Langtree Avenue, Mildura, Victoria 3500 Australia Telephone: 0350 225 800 g when people work as a team and complement each other in their job role. Dr. El-Sheikh has been a CEO since 2011 and proceeds to share his thoughts on how the company has performed since that time. It was shortly after the financial crisis, at a time when the banks could give you grace he explains, having at one stage squeezed the group to the extreme. “The company had reached the size where it was no longer a family business and we needed to implement a full restructuring, so this was a massive challenge for us. We also had to start working on policy and procedure and ensuring that we employed the right people, giving them the right to innovate, lead and be creative. Finally, Dr. El-Sheikh reveals his hopes and plans for 2017 and beyond as this illuminating and informative interview comes to an end. “In the medical business, there is no medium term because it is always short. In the short term, we are working on innovations for the company to see a great outcome and reward, which are more than sustainable and promote very high standards. In the long term, the group is going beyond Australia. “We take pride in our medical standards here, which are amongst the best in the world, so people looking at businesses and manufacturing here can see that we have a great asset along with our level of critical knowledge. I started to look at countries such as China, who need people to help them construct a proper health service for their local community. My long-term dream is to export our services into other areas of the world such as The Middle East.”
