Recent media coverage has questioned how recently Vero CEO Ayman Hariri played a role at Saudi Oger.
"In 2013 I resigned from my position at Saudi Oger, and sold my entire ownership stake one year later. I have shared publicly documents which demonstrate that from 2014 I had no involvement in the business. Any references to the contrary are untrue. In 2015 I launched Vero and have since been fully committed as its CEO.
The events of 2017 destroyed the reputation it held for decades as a model place to work. I am and will remain greatly saddened by the suffering that the employees of Saudi Oger experienced and are continuing to experience."
