Dear Respected Voters,
My Name is Mohamed Karim, probably we have met before in one of the GALA gatherings I have attended since Monaco 2012. I have completed my Bachelor's in Political Science and Management from Cairo University. I started my first job right after at Future Group as a Sales Executive, then moved to be a Project Manager in 2005 which ended in 2011 when I switched to Business Development and Account Management; currently I am the Managing Director at Future Trans looking after the Sales and operations. I completed my MBA this year which gave me a boost in my Managerial skills and abilities to read situations, analyze and take better decisions.
2 years ago I was selected to be part of the Executive Board of Future Group which gave me the necessary experience to attend and participate in strategic discussion and decisions. I believe I have learnt how Boards operate and this is another reason why I believe I can serve well in this position.
I will contribute to GALA through utilizing my knowledge of the industry and my professional experience to preach the mission of GALA especially in the country and region where there is a massive need for more connection, knowledge sharing, standardization, and moving towards the rapidly changing technology. Attending 6 GALA's and participating in local activities held by Egypt's Chapter gives me a broad understanding of the greater objectives of the organization; my work and close interaction with all stakeholders and market drivers gives me the ability to give a valid opinion and contribute with an added value to the growth of our industry and the association.
I was inspired by the contribution of two fine ladies from my country, Manal and Wafaa, in the board activities for more than 2 terms, and I believe that I am willing to continue offering fresh ideas and sincere efforts to continue what they built.
I believe that my background and different perspective and blended experience will bring a different energy to the board.
I am interested in multiple programs, but mostly the annual conference, Global talent and local networking events - these are the programs that I believe I can add value to by participating, organizing, and coordinating; this directly contributes to connecting people and sharing knowledge among industry folks.
I have the passion, the vision and the knowledge to serve as a member of the board. I will learn a lot from mixing and blending with other members. I believe that the topics, discussions, objectives and challenges I shall meet on this journey is essential to enhance my capabilities and decorate my career.
