It is with great sadness that we inform that our dear friend, colleague, mentor and agent, Mr. Jihad Karam, passed away on January 10, 2023 in his home town Beirut in Lebanon.
Jihad has been with Hexagon from the very beginning, representing us in Egypt which soon has become one of our biggest and most important sourcing markets. While he kept his residence in Lebanon, he commuted between Beirut and Cairo, a town that he had grown fond of long time ago. Jihad has been instrumental in developing Hexagon’s business in Egypt, he has “put us on the map”, as we use to say. He had a profound knowledge of the market, and he enjoyed many relationships and friendships with an uncountable number of people in the industry.
We will keep Jihad in our hearts, and we will remember his warm personality and his smiling face during many conference calls; we are thankful that we had the privilege to have him as our friend and colleague for these years. May he rest in peace.
Nouran Samaha who has worked together with Jihad will continue his legacy.
