Back to meet our people



Omar Thabet
Human Resources Specialist, Dana Egypt

After completing a degree in Law at Cairo University, I joined NATGAS, initially working in the legal department before changing the direction of my career and moving into human resources (HR).

I chose to work for Dana because of its great people, its culture and its opportunities for development. I’m in the relatively early stages of my career so it’s important for me to work with a team of professionals who I can learn from, and who are willing to share their knowledge with me.

My role at Dana allows me to work across the entire HR spectrum. I oversee all HR activities and provide an overall administration and advisory service to the management team and employees. 

One thing I really like about Dana is that we’re encouraged to think creatively and challenge the way things are done if we believe they can be done better. Every opinion is valued, everyone has a voice, we can all influence change – which is incredibly rewarding.

It’s also important for me to work for a company that recognises the value of investing in its employees through training and further education. I’m currently studying for a Human Resources Management Diploma at the American University in Cairo, supported by Dana.

I’d like to expand my knowledge, skills and expertise in the HR field, and continue to help people, improve HR processes and be an effective member of the team. I’m confident Dana is the company that will help me get there!
