Key Accomplishments

Founded two successful small companies, published 20 books and hundreds of articles and photographs (mostly hard copy, but some digital), and lectured at various universities, such as Harvard.

Set and raised standards in the private service field, translating and bringing the butler profession into the 21st Century and using that quintessential service model in the corporate world to raise service standards.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

As a team, respective areas of responsibility known and followed, agreed-upon goals and policies, intelligent, real-time assessment of, and response to, situations and good coordination, with rapid and timely communication that is to the point. Creative, upbeat, passionate and dedicated co-motion.

As an Advisor

Find out what they want and then provide my input on how to get there. Rapid communication interchange, upbeat, no politics, just focused on achieving the mutual goal as a team player

Mounir is THE QUINTESSENTIAL entrepreneur—where others see nothing or something mundane, he sees an opportunity and acts, drawing upon his ... wide network to make things happen. He has the persistence and intelligence to push through projects, and is a very good communicator (not because he speaks several languages, but because he keeps you informed and responds quickly and seeks your input). If you need any product or service introduced to the Middle East or North Africa, or anywhere else for that matter, he is the one to have in your corner—which is why I send appropriate projects his way whenever they come up.
