Mr. Pang, Managing Director and owner of Ark Infrastructure Solutions Inc., joins Seven Seas Water after his seven year role as Kharafi National Company's Infrastructure Project Development Division's Chief Development Officer.  He was responsible for managing a Team of project developers during the implementation of selective BOT/BOO/PPP infrastructure projects in the Middle East and North Africa region.  He was also the Corporate Business Development Division's Chief Development Officer managing the sales and marketing of all Kharafi National's business lines in the MENA Region, focusing on Kuwait, UAE, Oman, Egypt, Southern Iraq and Saudi Arabia.
