CASEM EL NASSER
In the course of four years as a Production Engineering Manager in the manufacturing industry, I designed and supervised the implementation of many successful projects to expand our market share. In addition to that, I integrated electromechanical technologies and solutions to enhance organizational competitiveness.
In 2007 acquired an MBA degree to enrich my managerial ambitions. In the retail business, I obtained skillful B2B Marketing & Supply Chain management experience to provide cost-effective solutions to improve sales, brand awareness, customer relations, logistics and commodity management. In the eight years since acquiring my MBA, it has allowed my senior managerial experience to be invaluable. My experience and knowledge had allowed me to harness many skills and business practices to drive profitable growth for the company, even during periods of economic recession.

In addition to effective retail space utilization, this increase in cash flow enabled me to empower current sales force, and acquire resourceful CRM software & marketing solutions.
