Most of us are in the process of building our careers and if you are similar to us at Mood Group, we very much like to read and learn about those that have already been very successful and to understand what they would say in their own words has brought about that success. With that in mind we asked Mazen Wafic El-Tibi, Ex Main Board Director Heidelberg Middle East to share some of his thoughts on the topic, we give Mazen thanks for the following wisdom.
Mazen Wafic El-Tibi - Ex Main Board Director Heidelberg Middle East
“To those that do not know me, I would introduce myself. Name Mazen Wafic El-Tibi Member of the Board of Heidelberg Middle East from 2007-2018. Born in Beirut Lebanon in 1955 to a family of journalists, and we owned a printing company. Controversy in the country caused my exodus (I will not go into that). to the UK to complete my studies. My career path took me from being a legal coordinator on a project in Iraq, sales executive at Coats Brothers ink manufacturers, Linotype and finally Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG. The road wasn’t easy but with every stage I have learned to overcome any given obstacle, and this prepared me for the next phase. What I can share with you, which I believe was the instrumental cause of success are the following: 1-Know your own capabilities and limitations. 2-Never promise what you can’t fulfil. 3-respect other people ideas and include them in yours. 4- Clear communication leads to clear decisions. 5-Never underestimate your customer and listen. 6-Never say negative things about your competition, just stick to what you have to offer. 7-work within set company ethics. 8-know your industry and the trend, to enable you to give the right advice to your customer. 9- Never sell for the sake of selling, offer the right equipment to the right application. 10- Human factor, be a leader and not a manager, your team should feel as one with you, all pulling in the right direction. I hope this will benefit you on career path. Mazen Wafic El-Tibi”
