Taking EFG Hermes to the next level: Karim Awad tells us the full story in this week’s episode of Making It

Karim Awad takes a deep dive into the building of EFG Hermes 3.0 in the third episode in the debut season of Making It, our podcast on how to build a great business in Egypt. The financial world can seem abstract and impenetrable to the uninitiated. But in the latest of Making It, we have an inside voice to give us the ins and outs. Karim Awad, CEO of EFG Hermes, began his career with the firm as an analyst, rising to become group CEO. Karim talked to us about 17-hour workdays, of always staying hungry for something bigger, and how he thinks of strategy.
