CEO at Sync Media

Sync Media brings together the various elements needed to create and monetize great content: Creativity, Financing and Distribution. Sync Media produces video content for television, web and mobile that is tailored for the Arab audience while providing branding and sponsorship opportunities for advertisers.

Prior to founding Sync Media, Karim had been managing the television and radio business of the Abu Dhabi Media Company since 2007. The Broadcast business experienced a significant growth during Karim’s tenure from its initial portfolio of three FTA channels and four radio stations. By 2012, it included a ten-channel HD sports and general entertainment pay-tv business, nine pan-Arab free-to-air channels and five UAE radio stations. In addition, the online properties of these channels and radio stations were established during Karim’s tenure. The awareness, reach and revenues of ADMC’s Broadcast business have multiplied under Karim’s leadership.

Before joining ADMC, Karim was Deputy Head of Channels at the Lebanese Broadcasting Corporation. Prior to that, he spent eleven years in management consulting with the most recent position being with Booz Allen Hamilton (now Booz & Co.)
