What is your current role and what makes it exciting?

My Current Role is Sales Director Egypt and what makes it exciting is the ability to Lead, work with & interact with different colleagues, functions, & brands. Also working on managing & reacting to short term challenges & opportunities while working on making sales organization ready to win & lead in the future. We have a vision of a sales organization that is a source of competitive advantage & profitable growth...this is exciting!

How has your career developed at MDLZ?

I Joined MDLZ back in April 2020 as CP&A Manager for Mashreq, then got Promoted to Sales Director Mid 2021. But it's not about the roles, in MDLZ and throughout the past 3 years, the exposure to different projects, leaders, & categories has significantly helped me grow, develop & mature and I’m still hungry for more.

What kind of project, assignments have you done outside of the traditional career moves that helped you further your career?

I was able to work on cross functional projects that broadened my skills & enabled my development, 2 examples are Digital transformation for our distributor operations in Egypt, another one is Order fulfilment consolidation to enable logistics efficiencies in Egypt. These projects sharpened my end-to-end understanding of the business.
