Dubai, UAE: KEF Holdings – the privately-owned family company steeped in more than 25 years of innovation – today unveiled its new logo, as it ushered in a new chapter of industry-agnostic disruption, complemented by a new energy, new state-of-the-art office in DIFC, and a host of new innovative initiatives. Having successfully transformed the oil, gas and infrastructure industries, and education system, KEF is now redefining healthcare in India and across the world. Extensive plans are also in place for the coming year in the hospitality, wellness, and venture capital sectors.
As part of the unveiling, KEF also launched season one of its brand-new podcast series, KEF Connect, with an AED 15,000 prize set to be given in support of a local community hero who has dedicated his/her talent, time and energy to those in need during these challenging times.
BEING DIFFERENT, MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Since establishing KEF Holdings with the mission to be different and make a difference, Faizal E. Kottikollon, Founder & Chairman, has received widespread recognition for the major impact he has made across various industries. He has been named ‘One of the Top 100 Indian Business Leaders in the Arab World’ by Forbes Middle East and ‘One of the 20 Most Influential Indian Leaders in Gulf Construction’ by Construction Week, as well as being listed by Arabian Business as ‘One of the 100 Most Powerful Indians in the Gulf’.
Commenting on the company’s exciting next steps, he says, “At KEF Holdings, we believe in being different to make a difference and build a sustainable future for all. As we get ready to enter a new chapter, we would like to thank everyone who has been part of our incredible journey. As a company and family, we are now enormously excited and focused on the journey that lies ahead.”
THE LAUNCH OF KEF CONNECT
KEF Connect is the podcast series that makes a difference – connecting listeners to the trendsetters and trailblazers creating an impact in their industries and communities.
“KEF Connect was launched with the intention for KEF Holdings to contribute to the pool of knowledge available in this digital age. We’ve always believed in giving to create an impact, so, in the same vein, the conversations and stories we will feature will always aim to educate, instill inspiration and ignite action,” says Sophiya Faizal, Director of KEF Holdings, who, as the second-generation leader of the family business, has been instrumental in injecting a new energy into KEF’s signature disruptive spirit.
Season one of KEF Connect will focus on local community heroes, everyday heroes who have dedicated their talents, time and energy to uplifting the people around them. These people have shown strength, hope and perseverance to rise above an unprecedented set of challenges in 2020, and KEF Connect wants to celebrate them, hear their stories, and support their causes with AED 15,000 prize money. KEF is encouraging people to nominate their community heroes at KEFHoldings.com.
The first season of the podcast series will be presented by entrepreneur Saleh Al Breik, who comments, “We are hoping that our listeners will find hope in our interviews and be inspired to support these community heroes, or perhaps even start their own projects. In times like these, community action produces some of the most meaningful impacts in rebuilding and reshaping a better tomorrow for all.”
KEF Connect is set to expand its focus in subsequent seasons, welcoming innovators, disruptors and entrepreneurial change-makers to the podcast to tell their stories
KEF HEALTHCARE’s EXCITING NEXT PHASE
KEF Healthcare is an integral part of KEF Holdings’ vision for the future. Utilising modern technologies and ethical practices, KEF Healthcare aims to make premium quality healthcare accessible to all. Its world-class services are completely redefining industry standards by putting the patient in the centre of the healthcare system.
KEF Healthcare’s first flagship project – Meitra Hospital – was designed and delivered in 2017. India’s first ‘Hospitel’, the 400,000-square-foot, 220-bed, tertiary-care hospital was manufactured in just 18 months, using KEF Infra’s offsite manufacturing technology.
With the aim of making premium quality healthcare from India and the UAE accessible to the world, the next phase of KEF Healthcare, which will be unveiled soon, is set to revolutionise traditional healthcare delivery models and redefine industry standards – with MEITRA at its core.
