Director - Sales and Marketing
Mehdi Qerim has always found pigeon-holes claustrophobic. In a career charting a raft of different industries, he’s brought his strategy, management and business development skills to every facet of each business he’s involved with – whether his nameplate said Manager, Director or Founder.
This has led to a highlight reel of successful corporate roles across finance, outsourcing and sales. However his true achievements stem from his career of self-employment as the founder of several successful businesses and strategic investor and advisor to many others. Today Mehdi sits on the board of three technology businesses based here and in the USA, and is the Managing Director of Yoke, a Melbourne based creative agency. He is a business leader who understands the elements required to deliver excellence – a strong, ethical culture, sound business practices, genuine accountability and open communication.
Mehdi lives by a philosophy of understanding opportunity and surrounding himself with the right people – a philosophy that led him to Arro. He likes to tell us he’s the least talented person in the room but in truth he’s blessed with an eye for spotting talent and the gift to bring it to its full potential.
Mehdi loves travel, enjoys great food and generally all things beautiful – Art, Antiques and Architecture but to name a few.
