Head of International Cooperation & Business Development
I have been Masen’s International Cooperation and Partnerships Director since September 2015. (Masen stands for Moroccan Agency for Sustainable Energy. Masen is in charge of developing Renewable Energy projects and particularly Renewable Energy power plants in Morocco.)
I’m responsible for designing and implementing an international projection strategy for Masen, with a focus on three priority areas : collaborating with Europe, as part of South-North cooperation for trading electricity from renewable sources between Morocco and the European electricity market ; collaborating with Africa, as part of South-South cooperation ; and for the MENA region and the rest of the world, sharing expertise and Masen’s technical assistance, developing greenfield and brownfield projects, and developing an industrial cooperation. I also support the needs of internal entities, particularly by raising international funds.
In my early roles at BNP Paribas, Accenture and UTC, I gained extensive experience of managing internationally oriented corporate restructuring and business development projects. On my return to Morocco, I founded Next Management, a company that specializes in restructuring and transformation projects, and then took over the general management of MCS, a subsidiary of UTC.
I graduated in engineering with a degree in organizational management from Ecole des Mines de Paris & HEC Paris.
An advocate of African optimism, convinced that energy is fundamental to sustainable development and growth, I strive to promote a green revolution on a regional and continental scale in my work at Masen.
I’m married and a father of one child.
