Mohamed El Biali
Head of E-commerce
Mohamed Elbiali is the Head of E-commerce, He brings more than 10 years of experience in E-commerce, Operations, Call centers, Customer service, Project Management and also Entrepreneurships & Startups.
Mohamed is originally a pharmacist but the usual duties related to the job did not appeal to him as it was too predictable and not fulfilling.
So he did not hesitate to join Convergys in 2008 when offered the post of Senior Support Professional in what was then a small business account with only fifteen people on its payroll. The work interested him greatly: the company specialized in BPO. His enthusiasm and grasp for technical details led to the promotion as Operations Manager within 4 months. He soon made changes in training and employee evaluation concentrating on improving customer service on all fronts. The company grew by leaps and bounds: when He left the company in 2014, He was managing 230 people. In 6 years as operations manager, He gained much valuable experience in managing people, in interviewing them and selecting the right personnel.
At the end of 2014, He decided to pursue a vision of establishing a new startup that uses most advanced digital garment printing technology. This venture (in 2015) was very rewarding and quite different to his previous work, as it lay with the vibrant and changeable fashion market. It gave me an appreciation of the value of aesthetics in business, but most important gave him the experience of establishing a startup from the beginning and how entrepreneurships works.
He then was appointed as Head 004 International, a company specializing in E-commerce. He inherited a loss-making company, but using creative market analysis and focused remodeling, worked out a sound basis for the company. Again, He paid much attention to service, staff selection, staff training and understanding E-commerce. This company, within 2 years, is now hugely profitable, Having grown from only 1 person to full team of 9 departments with seven successful e-commerce sites as revenue spinners.
Lastly he Joined El Sawy Group as the Head of E-commerce to be responsible for the overall business vision, strategy, planning, execution & business extensions.
