Sales & Production Director DMAH
After having begun his career at LSESD in 2005 as the senior accountant, Naji Gedeon was promoted to his current position as the Lead Sales & Production Director in 2010. He is responsible for all marketing and sales activities as well as planning, organizing, and attending book fairs. Ever the social butterfly, Naji Gedeon excels at connecting with local and international partners and donors for the purpose of creating potential partnerships and mutual publishing projects. Furthermore, he carries publications from start to finish by ensuring that strategic planning ends up becoming a final product. Finally, he also assists MERATH with their projects in Syria and conducts field visits to partners across the region.
With a heart full of love, Naji is motivated by helping and empowering others. He is a people person who knows how to interact with others and likes individuals for who they are. He believes that sometimes the daily small acts of kindness can make a big difference for people, which is why he enjoys helping others. His character is marked by care, cooperativeness, supportiveness, and humor. He values efficiency and timeliness and believes that one’s values define his priorities and that when a person’s job aligns with his values, then he is more likely to be satisfied and content. Naji is also a man who is motivated by success. Seeing the organization grow gives him a sense of personal achievement and satisfaction, which motivates him to continue working hard. For this reason, it is very appropriate that Naji’s favorite verse should be Colossians 3:23, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.”
