Nozer’s journey with DEI started on 2005 as an IT Technical Specialists. He was one of the few who were given a chance to be sent overseas for training. In the same year, the team geared up to open its first site in Dubai. As the first site opened, the second site was already in process and so on with future sites. The most exciting adventure was yet to come for Nozer; opening our first site in Asia. The rate of expansion was unbelievable. As DEI expanded, so did the challenges for Nozer.
