Amira HassanCustomer Relations Director

Joining the workforce that young accelerated her learning curve and enriched her exposure level, which allowed her to reach the highest levels of proficiency early on. Amira thrives in helping others and that’s what makes her a mine of information when it comes to customer service and finding smart solutions. On a personal note, she loves music and dancing, enjoys a game of volleyball every once in a while and has special interest in socializing and making new friends which makes her a true extrovert at heart and a social butterfly wherever she goes.
