As the CEO of one of the oldest IT companies in the region, I have, over the years, built and shared my experience in the design of innovative software applications. Also, with studies in telecom and electronics engineering, MSc and PhD in information theory, I worked as an independent consultant with the UN and the World Bank. I believe I have helped emerging nations move forward through the use of new IT solutions. At IML, the company I started 33 years ago, I am proud to have been the first to introduce UNIX in Lebanon. I also oversaw the design and integration of IT solutions using the latest development tools,on both Open Source and proprietary platforms, and the most advanced infrastructure.
