record of work in Egypt, and who is an effective manager of people and change.

Do you believe that the heritage of Ancient Egypt is important? And that we owe it to future generations to preserve the past? Do you enjoy working with people? Can you think ahead and plan strategically? Are you financially aware? And do you thrive on
