FAAR welcomes a top management member to the team

Nothing brightens the future of a company more than the arrival of a new prestigious member in its team, and FAAR Morocco has been offered just that when Sanae Lahbabi joined our ranks. Operating as Regional Director for FAAR MEA, Sanae is an expert who has accumulated praise and an immense reputation in the realm of electronics in her former roles at key companies of the field in Morocco. Indeed, her experience of over 27 years from Quality Engineer to Technical Director at ST Microelectronics Nemotek, and moving up the ladder to senior Vice President in charge of advanced technologies in Valtronic Technologies helped Sanae to develop not only strong technical knowledge, but also managerial skills as well as a solid professional network.

Mrs Lahbabi is now assuming the mantle of pushing our Moroccan branch towards becoming a major player in the MEA region mainly by acting as a cradle for skills and innovation and perpetuating the research in complex and advanced electronics.

Today FAAR MEA already supports Moroccan R&D through participation & partnership with local universities and industrialists for training, PHD financing, and involvement in high level research programs. Programs such as the Master’s Degree in “Embedded systems in automotive sector”, the launch of the Smart Lab Factory to promote research in Artificial Intelligence (together with ENSIAS in Rabat), 3 PHD programs running with different engineering schools, and finally the foundation of a private Engineering School for the Automotive & Aeronautics sectors.

The challenge Sanae will take on is to make several partnerships with local manufacturers and universities flourish, as well as push R&D projects through experimentation and all the way to the serial market. All of which will help conquer and expand our offer of electronic power & control solutions and development tools to the markets of this unique and rich part of the world. “Our main goal is to bring turnkey system solutions and build a bridge between the industry, research and education of young engineers”, assures Sanae.

How lucky, lucky indeed, and delighted to share this wonderful piece of news. From the whole of FAAR: “Welcome to the team, welcome to the #SmartMobility revolution, Sanae!”
