CAREER SUMMARY
Throughout 10 years of experience I delivered more than a 100 MEP projects in the Middle East and Africa. In the past years, I designed projects for Hilton, negotiated with Alstom, and supervised MEP site works for KETTANEH Construction and BEMCO.

Shortly after my graduation from Notre Dame University, I was selected to represent my employer in front of Dubai authorities and clients. Then I moved to Qatar to supervise MEP site works of Qatalum, the largest aluminum smelter in the Middle East. Upon completing the latter, I returned to Beirut to pursue my graduate studies and obtained a Master of Science in International Business. Following this academic achievement, I joined BEMCO and was participated in some of the largest power plants in the MENA region. During this period, I was involved with major engineering firms such as Alstom, Petrogas, RCDC and L&T.

By 2016 I had already started my own electro-mechanical engineering office. Since then, I have been fully occupied with delivering quality MEP projects and expanding my portfolio on local and international levels, with main focus on quality, client satisfaction and environmental responsibility.
