Danae Mercer


Amer­i­can-grown and Eng­land­e­d­u­cated Danae has roamed the world in pur­suit of the shini­est sto­ries and most in­ter­est­ing tales. For the last two years, Dubai’s been home but a fond­ness for travel -and air­port lounges- has kept her bounc­ing ev­ery­where from Baku to Bo­drum. When not sat at a key­board, at­temt­ping to re­count her glam­orous tales, Danae en­joys fail­ing at water sports and train­ing for dis­tance races. This month, she sat down long enough to speak with Maysa Jal­bout, the new CEO of one of the world’s largest ed­u­ca­tion foun­da­tions. If be­ing the wife and sis­ter-in-law re­spec­tively of our Ed­i­tor-inChief wasn’t enough to get them the job, the Mourad twin’s Dou­ble Trou­ble com­mu­ni­ca­tions con­sul­tancy prob­a­bly was. With dou­ble the brains and dou­ble the power, this dy­namic duo gives a whole new mean­ing to the con­cept of two for one. In a self­less bid to help de­ci­pher the ap­peal of ul­tra-lux­ury SUV’S, the twins broke from the hum­drum of motherly du­ties to put their driv­ing skills to the test on the new Bent­ley Ben­tayga. Car­pool­ing will never be the same.
