Business biography launched

Independent business biography to celebrate Rami’s life and achievements launches at The American University of Beirut (AUB). The CEO’s Journey, an independent business biography celebrating Rami’s life and many achievements, has been published by Future Group in a limited commemorative edition.

The 292-page book took a year to research and write, and includes interviews with over 70 family members, friends, colleagues, suppliers and customers who knew Rami well.

The CEO’s Journey charts Rami Makhzoumi’s life – from his birth in Riyadh, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, to the week of his death when he received the Masterclass CEO of the Year award in Dubai in April 2011. It also covers the first full year after his death and the beginnings of a number of legacy projects established in his name.

The book, by business school professor Steven Sonsino and former Financial Times journalist Jacqueline Moore, is being launched at the American University of Beirut on 31 October 2012, the day which would have been Rami’s 35th birthday. There are plans to launch a public edition of the book, which will be available initially through the Amazon website, in early 2013.
