What I have done for Lebanon

In 2006 during July war that took Lebanon by storm and in my capacity as a CTO of touch, I put in place a crisis plan to keep the mobile telecommunications running and had my team of engineers mobilized to restore coverage on the spot whenever any of our sites were bombed… we knew that at such dark moments, a phone call could save a live.

Additionally, starting 2010 and in my capacity as a Senior Executive, I have been a major contributor to the revolutionary changes mainly in Broadband Technologies and Services that took place in the Telecom sector in Lebanon.
