Entrepreneurial Success

A successful background of entrepreneurship, having founded the first digital and social media agency in Saudi Arabia in 2012 and exited in 2019.

My professional drive is focused on exceeding expectations by optimizing company performance, team efficiency, and individual output.

A Seventeen-Year Career

Worked with a number of prominent multinational marketing and communications firms. Kickstarted the digital and social media marketing industry in Saudi Arabia in 2012. Assisted a number of regional government agencies and globally renowned brands with their digital communications and reputation management.

My career began in 2006 in Saudi Arabia at DDB followed by Ogilvy. During my tenure at The Social Clinic (2012-2019) I developed digital marketing ecosystems for local, regional, and international businesses, including Microsoft, STC, Coca-Cola, British American Tobacco, General Motors, Danone, Bridgestone, General Electric, and several financial institutions and government ministries listed below.

I genuinely love what I do! I am constantly reading, learning, researching, and growing with the industry. I am very fortunate to be part of this generation and so grateful to be part of an ever evolving industry.

It's Not A Job When It Feels Like Home

I have been privileged to have worked with the best colleagues over the years and I owe them a tremendous debt of gratitude for their trust in me, their remarkable passion and drive for success, and for making our trip a two-way learning curve. I consider myself a collaborative leader who prioritizes team relationships, empathy, compassion, attention to detail, and professional growth.
