Meet Mastercard Egypt’s new VP. PLUS: Bassem Rady arrives in Rome

Inji Borai (LinkedIn) has been appointed vice president and country manager for Mastercard Egypt, according to a press release (pdf). Borai joined Mastercard in 2020 as a senior managing consultant after four years as CEO at Acumen Consulting, where she is a co-founder. She also serves on the board of several MENA startups, is a senior advisor to German development agency GIZ, and works as an ambassador for the Lean Startup Company. Borai has held policy advisory, investment analysis and management consulting roles across the region.

Former presidential spokesperson Bassam Rady took up his new post as Egypt’s ambassador to Italy yesterday after presenting his credentials to Italian President Sergio Mattarella in Rome, the Foreign Ministry said in a statement. Rady was named as Egypt’s ambassador to Italy nearly a year ago but continued to serve in his former position as Ittihadiya spokesperson until Ahmed Fahmy took over in January.

Rady also met with UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Director-General Qu Dongyu to present his credentials as a permanent representative of Egypt to the FAO, which is headquartered in Rome, the Foreign Ministry said.
