Weber Shandwick MENAT has promoted Ghaleb Zeidan to Regional Managing Director position for UAE, Culture, Learning & Development, and Partnership. For the past five years Zeidan has helmed the agency’s UAE operations, overseeing both offices in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Ghaleb is said to have recorded outstanding growth on multiple levels over the past two years.

“Ghaleb has demonstrated impressive ability and passion in the decade or more I’ve known him. This is a well-deserved next step in which I know he will thrive by collaborating closely with the regional office leads and teams to grow the strength of our culture, the effectiveness of our learning, and the value of our partnerships,” said Ziad Hasbani, Regional CEO of Weber Shandwick MENAT.

In addition to his existing remit in the UAE, Ghaleb will take on wider regional responsibilities focused on three key areas for all Weber Shandwick offices in the Middle East. This includes the continued development of agency culture, successfully harnessing the skills and knowledge within and beyond the network to amplify this through effective training, and to explore strategic collaborations that can drive two-way value.

“As Regional MD, I am excited to take Weber Shandwick MENAT’s progress to the next level. I am grateful for the exceptional support of incredible teams that were instrumental in our agency reaching many new milestones. Together, we've built something exceptional, and I'm excited about the path ahead,” said Ghaleb Zeidan.

Beyond the UAE, Weber Shandwick MENAT has large operations in Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Türkiye, as well as a presence in Oman, Bahrain, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Tunisia, and Morocco.
