We would like to thank Mr.Hassainar Kizhakke Pathiyil for agreeing to be featured in our ‘’A day in life’’ page for May 2021. He shared a lot of his inspiring experience in his 19 years of working in Gulf Drug.


It was in 2002 when he officially joined Gulf Drug, during that time our office was located in Al Wasl Road Jumierah. He was hired by Mr.Maher Salim through Seekers Recruitment Company as our Project Accountant at that the time he was still working in Juma Al Majid Establishment as accountant. His Initial interview was conducted by the Seeker Recruitment HR after that it was the financial controller and the final interview was with our Joint Managing Director Mr. Rashad Al Moosa. After he successfully passes the all interview, he finally received his appointment letter and started working with us in March 2002.


His typical working day usually starts by reviewing  and monitoring the daily cash position in the bank, coordinating with bank for overseas supplier payment  confirmation, checking the onward remittance and updating in the system, checking post-dated cheques and sending due cheques to the bank. Coordinating with location in charge for sales and sales return system posting issue and follow up credit sales supporting documents from each outlet for collection follow up. Checking staff related advance request and making payments. Resolve Medical Centre, Pharmacy Showroom and GulfMed software issue with the help of our software IT Team. Every end of month is busiest time for him because he is preparing the payroll for the salaries of our Retail Employees.


Mr. Hassinar is recently working with the external audit for 2020 under the supervision of his Finance Manager Mr.Hadi, they are also handling many firms the audit is on the final stage.


The biggest challenge he is facing right now was to work during this pandemic time because most of his colleagues in his department was previously infected with Covid-19 virus. He is hoping that with all their hard works and their unity, they will overcome all the trials with the support of his Finance Manager Mr.Hadi, our CFO Mr.Aravindan most especially our top management.


In regards to his proudest achievement he shared ‘’I am proud of every task that my manager gives me because no matter how big it is, I always complete it on my own and finished it on time, especially on the time of completion of each annual external audit’’.


His biggest accomplishment was when he was promoted as Senior Accountant because he believes that his dedication and love to his work has been recognized and he is very grateful that the accounts department as well as the management is entrusting him the senior position.


Mr. Hassainar’s motivation always came from our top management attentive approach to employees and also the expansion of his knowledge when it comes to the Oracle system update in accounts related work.


He highlights that his inspiration is to be able to work in a good leading team and to be a part of the leading healthcare company in the UAE with Oracle based ERPs, because he believes that his skills is suited to his current position in the company.


One of his favorite memories in Gulf Drug was when he received his work anniversary certificate for 10 years of service directly from Dr. Zeyad in one of the company event in Movenpick Hotel last 2012.


His advice to other colleagues: ‘’Although our job has a different nature in an organization, we should always respect each other and each individual should perform the best that we can for the success of the company’’.


His work motto is has a deep meaning: ‘’Work Hard in silence, Let success makes the noise”:


Most of the people who are always boastful of their hard work ultimately don’t succeed to the extent of what they boasted about. While a few people who have a lot of knowledge, working day and night usually remain silent, in return when they succeed their success makes louder noise.


Thank you Mr. Hassianar Kizhakke Pathiyil for your 19 years of service, we wish you further success in the growth and development in Gulf Drug.
