Family Heritage – The Nehmeh Group And How History Shapes The Future
Nehmeh is a trading and manufacturing group of companies focused on providing industrial solutions with its roots dating back to 1955 in Doha, Qatar by its Lebanese founder Antoine Nehme. Following their slogan “We treasure the past. We celebrate the present. We embrace the future.” Nehmeh has made impressive efforts to preserve their history as part of their family legacy and corporate identity.
In this webinar we welcomed 2nd generation director Alexander A. Nehme, who shared Nehmeh’s journey, and gave insights on how he captured his family’s entrepreneurial history. Alexander shared the founder’s beginnings, leaving Lebanon in 1953 to seek new opportunities in the Gulf and how the knowledge and wisdom from this journey shapes the family business until today.
The interactive session allowed our participants to actively engage in a conversation around family legacies and how documenting family business history can impact future generations and change how we lead.
