The growth and success of MVP Tech in the UAE runs parallel to the journey of Said Kiwan and Jurgen E Herre, and how they came together to take the company to the height it is at today. Kiwan started his career in Washington DC, USA, before moving to the UAE in 2003 to start MVP Tech. He leveraged his relationships both in the US and Europe to represent security manufacturers and technologies that were moving into the GCC region, where there was a growing demand for safety and security. Herre started his career as a banker in 1989 in Germany before moving on to real estate, later becoming involved in real estate transactions during that time in the range of $25 billion. In 2016, Herre met Kiwan and they decided to join forces to bring MVP to the next level and to expand into other markets. Since then, the company has continued to build and grow. With the beginning of Covid, the company pivoted into other areas like AI and datacentres, which significantly improved its risk diversification, reshaping the face of MVP in the years to come. The company’s track record and performance are underpinned by many awards and recognitions, which are a result of the dedicated and passionate work of its talents and the permanent training and drive towards excellence.
