What colleagues have said about Qadimah’s leadership
Christopher has been a colleague of the highest caliber and I have greatly valued his professionalism and expertise.

His integrity and high ideals are unquestionable. …KAUST has greatly benefited from Christopher Sands’ expertise and contributions

I am glad to emphasize that he would qualify for an adjunct Professorship in his field in any major academic institution. This may be the only title missing to his battery of impressive human and academic assets. His leadership and academic experience have clearly been based on his many years of diverse, practical, entrepreneurial and innovative ventures; all of it in the service of cross-cultural activity, development, exchange and the values of integrity, openness and respect. I recommend Christopher Sands as an exceptional individual, both at the personal and professional level.
Stefan CatsicasExecutive Vice President Nestlé S.A., Chief Technology Officer, Head of Innovation, Technology, Research and Development
Christopher Sands brings the highest personal standards of integrity in working closely with senior leadership. He brings structure and reality to communications, developing direction and a vision and then building a team to accomplish it. He works at the highest levels in any institution to bring consistency and coherence to potentially conflicting agendas. He is truly exceptional, combining a broad intellect with a personal warmth and humor.
