السيرة الذاتية:

What do you get when you thrust someone into the world of technology with roles across Google, 3Com, Oracle, IBM over the past 27 years? Someone whose hunger for innovation takes a respite! After a nine-year-long stint in Google in various roles including acting as the Regional Business Lead in the MENA region as well as a role in Google’s more secretive cousin, Google X, Wael Fakharany has shifted his focus to the on-demand economy with his new role in Careem as of September 2016.

A digital optimist, Wael’s love for technology started early on in life, having earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer and Communications Engineering with Distinction from Ain Shams University in his hometown of Cairo, Egypt.

Wael’s hunger for all things innovation, leadership, entrepreneurship, and technology is his sole driving force behind his mission to push Careem’s business growth and support its position as the leading regional app for ride-hailing in MENA. In addition to his role as the Global Senior SVP for Government Relations, Wael will put much of his veteran experience on supporting the Egyptian market with a focus on R&D, job opportunities creation and prosperity programs for Careem Captains.

Wael will be heavily focused on Careem’s relationship with relevant stakeholders and policymakers across the countries where they operate in his capacity as the Global SVP. Wael’s focus is to ensure strategic partnerships and alignments can be struck where all involved parties can come out as winners to best serve the consumers through new initiatives and support for government relationships.
