Posted On September 7, 2021
PRESS RELEASE, Tunis, Tunisia, September 07, 2021 – iCompass is growing its leadership team with the appointment of Ms. Saoussen Mahjoub as its Chief Communications Officer (CCO).
Saoussen, also known as Suzy, comes with a broad set of skills and experiences in fundraising, sales, marketing, and communications. She came back to Tunisia, after 14 years in the United States, to join iCompass. Previously, Suzy held the role of Advisor in Multicultural Marketing and Business Development with ALSAC, the fundraising organization for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the #1 health non-profit in the US.
As a Chief Communications Officer at iCompass, Suzy will contribute to the elaboration and execution of the growth and expansion strategy in Africa and the Middle East.
“Joining the iCompass team is a dream come true as I get to be part of a startup that leverages Artificial Intelligence to bring people closer by bridging linguistic and dialectal gaps in Africa and the Middle East. If we really want to see a world with no boundaries, using machines to speak each other’s languages and dialects in order to better understand each other is a great first step. Perhaps the best first step towards a world that speaks to the heart. Through its work, iCompass helps foster diversity, equity, and inclusion in Africa and the Middle East, and I am thrilled to join this brilliant team.” Suzy Mahjoub
Suzy holds a Master’s degree in EU International Relations and Diplomacy from the College of Europe in Brugge (Belgium) and a bachelor’s degree in Economics from the University of Virginia (USA).
