Elie Khouri CEO Omnicom Media Group MENA
Congrats Dani. This recognition does not come as a surprise!
Unlike most leaders in advertising who have always been ‘suits’, Dani started as a young creative and worked his way up to lead one of the region’s biggest communication groups.
What makes Dani ideally suited for this role is his unique ability to draw on both his business acumen and his artistic flair. He’s a truly self-made man who’s trusted by everyone around him. Humble and approachable, Dani is at ease with everyone. He is the ultimate people person, even if it comes at his own detriment.
We’ve known each other for more than 35 years. More than a colleague, he is a friend I know I can always depend on. That said, he gave me a piece of advice some 25 years ago and if I had listened to it, well, my life would have taken a very different course…
Dani is witty, fun to be around and great company in any setting. Street smart and book smart, Dani is the ultimate trend setter with his look, his car and his gadgets. And of course, he always knows what to say to make you want to ride the same wave. Is Dani perfect? Of course not. One of his biggest challenges is his constant battle with his weight. His stress-eating does not help. His BMI may be constantly yoyo-ing but Dani always has an explanation for it and this usually ends with a joke.
