Muna Al Hashemi
Muna Al Hashemi is a University of Bahrain graduate with an MsC in Electronics and communication. She graduated with distinction and started her first job as a trainee graduate in Batelco. Fast forward 20 years to the future and Mrs. Muna earned her role as CEO of Batelco. She is also a Board Member of Umniah, a subsidiary of Batelco Bahrain. Umniah has worked to advance women’s empowerment and inclusion both in the workplace and in the communities in which it operates, and as such became a signatory to the United Nations Global Women’s Empowerment Principles in 2015. Despite one of the most competitive industry environments in the region, Al Hashemi’s invaluable adeptness at managing the operator’s business allowed Batelco Bahrain, once a monopoly before the industry was liberalised, to retain a leading market share in the country. The company contributes up to 41 percent of the Group’s revenues.
