Dany El Eid, participant Executive MBA McGill-HEC MontrealDany El Eid, a current McGill-HEC Montréal EMBA participant, recently accepted the role of Vice-President, Data and Technology at iProspect, a Dentsu Aegis Network subsidiary. iProspect is a leading digital performance marketing agency with a presence in many countries. Dany’s mandate is to build a technology consulting team within iProspect to help clients strengthen their digital systems and data analytics capabilities.

“I can barely contain my excitement as this new role combines my entrepreneurial and technical experience. The knowledge that I acquired so far during the Executive MBA program helped me to achieve this goal. This only strengthens my commitment and engagement. I knew I had made the right choice when choosing to be a part of the McGill – HEC Montreal EMBA community.”

Dany started his career in digital, working for PUMA before launching his own technology company in 2012 to help multinational brands such as P&G, Nestle, and Sony, identify new trends and adopt various innovative technologies. His company attracted investments from international VCs in Silicon Valley, Europe and the Middle East, before getting acquired in early 2018 by a US firm. He enjoys collaborating with talented people to work on game-changing ideas that turn emerging technologies into sustainable solutions. He joined the McGill-HEC Montréal Executive MBA program in August 2019 and will receive his diploma in the spring of 2021. He already thinks highly of his EMBA experience:

“This program is truly a transformative experience with people and material that could not be more timely, especially as we progress toward the Future-ready module. Taking up this new role, I could not have done it without the support of the EMBA team, the faculty and admin, and their belief in bringing out the best in each of us!”
