Telecom Egypt had announced that the company’s board of directors, in its meeting, approved the appointment of Nasr El-Din as Managing Director and CEO, after the board accepted Adel Hamed’s resignation. He will assume a position in the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology, provided that he remains a non-executive member of the Board of Directors of TE.
Maged Othman, Chairman of the Board of Directors of TE, said that Nasr El-Din was chosen for that position due to his distinguished and extensive experience in the field of communications and information technology. His previous experience and pioneering role in TE as Head of the International Communications Services Business Unit in 2014 qualifies him to be the ideal candidate for this position. He would be able to manage the company, maximize the value of its assets and investments, and implement the company’s strategy within the framework of its vision for expansion and growth.

He joined TE in 2004 and received promotions until he headed the International Communication Services Business Unit in 2014. During that period, he undertook several initiatives in submarine cable systems, which contributed to maximizing the company’s revenues.
Nasr El-Din held the position of Assistant Minister of Communications and Information Technology for International Information Infrastructure from May 2020 until March 2023. He has an experience of over 20 years in the field of communications, especially in investments, development and operation of submarine cable systems and international communication networks.
