We are excited to announce that Samer Khoury has been appointed Vice-Chair of EFE-Global's Board. Samer became a founding Board Member of EFE-Global and EFE-Palestine because he saw the possibility to transform the lives of underserved youth and women by providing them with the training needed to find employment.
Samer is the Chairman of Consolidated Contractors Company (CCC), the largest construction company in the Middle East. He credits his first job on a construction site with teaching him valuable life lessons. It was the delicate balance of safety and efficiency that taught him life is a balancing act, where you must weigh the pros and cons of each decision and action.
For over 20 years, Samer has been highly involved in business, social and educational activities in the Middle East and Europe. Samer managed CCC’s operations in Kuwait before transferring to the headquarters in Athens, Greece. He was later appointed the Deputy Executive Chief of Operations and became responsible for marketing and executing the Group's activities on a global level.
Samer believes that with privilege and capacity comes the duty to help other human beings. He is a member of the Arab Business Council, the World Economic Forum in Geneva, the Pearl Initiative in the UAE, and is co-chair of the Aspen Institute's Middle East Strategy Group.
We are looking forward to continuing working with Samer!
