Magdy has built a sound reputation with both clients and candidates based on superior communication and the consistent delivery of results that exceed expectations. He has managed businesses in France, Spain, Portugal, Netherlands, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Africa at all levels — country, regional, and head office.

Magdy forged his professional career within blue-chip service organizations, gaining extensive experience in commercial negotiations, start-ups, and joint ventures in both private and public sectors. Over 15 years ago, he started the first regionally-based executive search firm affiliated to a global network and built up the business to become a leading player in the field.
