He has helped many organisations like Minc Property, Danone Waters, Danone UK and Transport for London. Within his current role, he is managing a team of developers in developing the business intelligence solutions, to support and accommodate the requirements of around 40,000+ employee user base.
Omar is considered by his friends as a critical thinker (he enjoys thinking and playing through every scenario in his mind) and is said to be a very genuine and hard working person.
In his spare time, he works enjoys researching and exploring new information systems technologies and gadgets.
