With a wealth of experience from holding key roles in various organizations, Hala Abdel Wadood is poised to be a valuable asset to the group. Her previous positions include Director of Public Affairs, Communication, and Sustainability for North Africa at Coca-Cola Atlantic, and Head of Public Relations and Corporate Social Responsibility at Orange Egypt Telecommunication.
