NEOM has opened its first international office in London, which will serve as a base for its business across Europe, said a press statement issued on Thursday. The opening was led by Saudi Ambassador to the UK Prince Khalid bin Bandar bin Sultan, the Rt Hon Oliver Dowden CBE MP, Deputy Prime Minister of the UK, and NEOM CEO Nadhmi Al-Nasr.
The office, located in Chancery House in the central district of Holborn, will serve as a base to support NEOM’s business across Europe, building on existing relations with partners, investors, and stakeholders across the continent, and nurturing new ones.
It is anticipated that NEOM’s new local presence will help identify future opportunities for collaboration as well as strengthen existing relationships, accelerating its efforts to address global challenges.
“We believe we must have a global footprint and work with the world’s brightest minds to solve the world’s most pressing challenges. From this standpoint, choosing London to open our first international office fits within the framework of consolidating our presence in the United Kingdom and Europe in general.” - NEOM CEO Nadhmi Al-Nasr
Abdallah Alhazani will spearhead the operations in Europe as its CEO, transitioning from his current role as an executive director of OXAGON, NEOM’s center for advanced and clean industries.
