Thomas Carlson - General Manager, Gulf Sales

Thomas Carlson

Executive Manager

Mr. Carlson has been running businesses for over 15 years and has been in the Gulf since 2006. As an American business man he understands the processes and needs of American business. At the same time, he loves the Gulf, is near-fluent in Arabic, and, as a result, serves as a cultural bridge between Amanah’s American suppliers and her Gulf clients.

Mr. Carlson loves doing business in the GCC, being outdoors with his wife and two kids, and playing guitar when he has time between other activities.
