Mr. Abed is an accomplished business leader with particular expertise in Emerging Markets and New Business. Skilled in all facets of business including organizational leadership, business development, P&L, corporate strategy, planning, operational execution, budgeting, and sales are only surpassed by his knack for identifying the “next big thing”.

His proven track record in closing revenue and strategic deals in large accounts in the United State includes EMEA and APAC deals. He established and led multinational teams throughout Europe and the Americas, including Switzerland, United Kingdom, Central America, Caribbean, and South East Asia which has proven invaluable as MobileTREC has begun to realize it international expansion plans.
