A pioneer and a force player who prepared for worldwide organizations to land in the Middle East, Abouelenein has played a significant role across global start ups also, building up Google’s communications in 18 countries over the region from ground zero, launching Netflix in the entire Middle East, Careem in Egypt and the creation of the Google Media Academy, which prepared in excess of 4,000 journalists over the MENA region.
Maha served as a consultant to the First Lady of Egypt and the international Communications Advisor for the Prime Minister of Egypt himself. She was also Principal Advisor for the US Department of State’s Under Secretary for Public Diplomacy, and was selected as the only internationally-based communications executive to join a six member White House Sprint Team for President Obama.
