Congrats to my friends, the new education and information ministers of Saudi Arabia! 

29 January 2015

I’d like to express my congratulations to my two dear friends and former colleagues: Dr Azzam Al-Dakhil and Dr Adel Altoraifi who have just been respectively appointed ministers of education and information in the new Saudi cabinet; the first under King Salman.

I got to know Dr Al-Dakhil in his capacity as CEO of Saudi Research and Marketing Group (SRMG), where I also go to meet and befriend Dr Altoraifi who served as the editor-in-chief of al-Majala and Asharq Al Awsat before he joined as deputy GM and then GM of Al Arabiya in Dubai.

Both gentlemen have extraordinary skills and are extremely passionate about what they do and I am proud to have known them for nearly a decade now.
