Meet Amal Alamuddin's family

Post by Nicky80 on Tue Apr 29 2014, 21:46

All this was found by Miss-Sunshine2020. Thanks you for sharing and connecting all the dots.... Very Happy 

I hope I post it clearly  Laughing 

Short version:

The mother from Amal was born as Baria Miknas (married later Ramzi Alamuddin - article in the mother of law thread). Baria's brother is Akram Miknas. And it looks like that Tarek Miknas is his son and Tarek Miknas was on the selfie picture while George and Amal were on the Seychelles (remember?) And Akram Miknas owns the Dubai Moving Image Museum (we have a thread that George visited that in Dubai).

Long version:

Akram Miknas

Akram Miknas

Akram Miknas was born in Lebanon but is a Bahraini national. He is the founder of the now ubiquitous Promoseven Holdings group, under whose umbrella reside some of the most sought-after brands in advertising and PR, and which today is the largest advertising and communications network in the Middle East and North Africa.

In 2008, subsidiary Fortune Promoseven made advertising history by becoming the first agency from the Middle East to win two Gold and two Silver Lions in the same year, at the 55th Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival held in France.

Miknas also owns several major hospitality and leisure companies in the kingdom and is owner of the McDonald’s franchise in Lebanon. With an interest running into real estate, Miknas owns prime buildings in various countries and is also a partner in several real estate and investment ventures.

Working with several governments in and out of the region on various projects, campaigns and developmental work, Miknas undertook the marketing of the Asian Games in Doha 2006 and helped launch a communications strategy for the Gulf Air Bahrain F1 Grand Prix.

MCN Chairman, Akram Miknas is Man of the Year 2014

Akram Miknas, Chairman of the Middle East Communications Network was nominated Man of  the Year 2014 by the prestigious regional publication ArabAd.

Here is an excerpt: An unshakable belief in his ability to circumnavigate tragedy and hardship saw him excelling at every endeavour he set his mind on. The path was laden with unexpected outcomes to otherwise honest intentions, which at every turn necessitated a novel strategy. Armed with a will and bent on making a life for himself, Miknas pushed harder at every turn as destiny played its hand in what was to become a story for the ages.

The editorial:

From a modest beginning in Beirut dating back to 1968, Akram Miknas built a communication and business empire comprised of tens of companies spread throughout the MENA region.

He is a man who knows his limits and is relentless in pushing those as far as possible every chance he gets.

His accomplishments, though too many to name, are in great part due to personal characteristics he took great care and patience in fostering. These qualities later saw him winning accounts other well-established agencies were also pitching for.

Acquiring fundamental insights related to clients and brands he was servicing or after he did with a confidence that impressed and at other times baffled most.

With both feet firmly on the ground, he learned the inner workings related to how these brands connect with the consumer and used this knowledge to further evolve any task he took on.

Ambitious and passionate about the craft, not a day went by without him embarking on a new adventure of some kind. Few of these landed him in hot water, which he bravely navigated out of through sheer perseverance and sound business sense.

Akram earned his way to the top through diligent application of all his abilities, which were based on his belief to always do better. As a result, the achievements he later came to be recognised for were a natural consequence to the success he enjoys today.

Exhuming confidence, he acquired the ability to sway minds and in doing so, brought life to everything he worked on. Though rare these master communicators are, fewer still are the men who measure up to Akram Miknas.

Witness to such accomplishments I have been and though the way forward is riddled with increased uncertainty, I am overly confident that out of this looming chaos, Akram will birth a new idea that would fuel the imagination of the communication industry for years to come.

He also owns the Museum George visited in Dubai

His Highness Sheikh Majid bin Mohammed inaugurates Dubai Moving Image Museum

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

His Highness Sheikh Majid Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, chairman of Dubai Culture and Arts Authority, inaugurated the Dubai Moving Image Museum yesterday.
His Highness was accompanied by Abdul Ghaffar Hussain, chairman of the Emirates Human Rights Association; Akram Miknas, MCN’s chairman and the museum’s founder and owner; general Hareb Bin Hadher, advisor at MCN; Marwan Bin Beyat, director-general of The Private Office of His Highness; Abdulhamid Juma, chairman of the Dubai International Film Festival and Gulf Film Festival and member of the ‘Higher Advisory Committee’ of Dubai Culture and Arts Authority; Saeed Al Nabooda, acting director-general of the Dubai Culture and Arts Authority; and Dr Salah Al Qassim, advisor to the Dubai Culture and Arts Authority, among other dignitaries.
“It was an honour to welcome His Highness at the museum,” says Akram Miknas, “This museum is one of only a handful of museums in the world focusing on the history of the moving image and is the only museum of its kind in the Middle East region given Dubai’s impressive track record of being the forefront in the fields of culture and the arts.”
Charting the evolution of the moving image, from the first primitive cave drawings to the birth of the motion picture film, the museum houses Miknas’ private collection accumulated over more than 30 years. All items in the museum are original, dating back from the 1730s to the 20th century and it is located on the first floor of MCN’s Hive building, located in Tecom Section C in Dubai.

Here is more about one of her family members. This was found by Miss-Sunshine2020. Thank you.  Give Flowers

Taking a lesson from the family of Clooney’s betrothed

Lebanon has been “trending” for all the right reasons since it was announced that Amal Alamuddin, a London-based barrister was engaged to George Clooney, an American actor. Not bad for a girl from the sleepy town of Baaklin in the Chouf Mountains.

Then again, we do punch above our weight when it comes to exporting highly educated, multilingual, and in Ms Alamuddin’s case, supremely groomed and impeccably flossed, human capital out into the world.

And in case anyone thinks this is a one off, achievement runs deep in the Alamuddin gene pool. Much has been made of her immediate family – dad is a respected academic while mum is a journalist – but her grandfather’s first cousin, Najib Alamuddin, trumps the lot.

Sheikh Najib, or the Flying Sheikh, as he was dubbed, was a man ahead of his time. In the pre-civil war period, which everyone agrees was something of a golden age, he embodied all of Lebanon’s achingly huge potential, first as chairman of Middle East Airlines and then as a government minister.

From 1952 to 1978, Mr Alamuddin took MEA, a newly formed carrier, and shaped it into a company that captured the panache and elegance of the new nation. MEA became the envy of the Arab world and, in many ways, today’s state-of-the-art GCC carriers owe their high standards to the benchmark it set.

Not only did he create a model corporate entity, Alamuddin was also notable for rolling up his sleeves and chipping away at the immovable monolith that is Lebanese confessionalism. He wanted MEA run like a western company and that meant snuffing out the sectarian culture of favours and sinecures and imposing efficiency and advancement by performance and merit.

He also smashed many of the practices that even today would incur the indignation of reactionaries. One of his most celebrated achievements was to ban the customary offering of coffee in the workplace whenever someone popped by, a practice that while socially ingrained and in the best tradition of Arab hospitality, hampered productivity. And it showed a remarkable determination to change what many would have deemed the unchangeable.

In the early days, he also fought to have as many Lebanese captains as possible, a vision that could have been stillborn in the wake of an accident in Dahran in 1964 when an MEA plane crashed as it came in to land, killing the 42 passengers and seven crew.

The captain on that flight was Lebanese, and MEA directors were scared that Lebanese pilots were simply not yet up to the job. Surely foreign pilots would be more reassuring. Alamuddin knew that if the company was to evolve, it had to nurture its own talent. He did not cave.

But there was another issue. This was at a time when MEA flight deck crew earned more than a government minister and many ambitious parents sent sons to unscrupulous flight schools in the United States, spending a fortune on what were ultimately useless licenses. Alamuddin actively discouraged the practice and ensured that all pilots accepted by the airline were trained in Perth in Scotland.

As MEA’s chairman, Alamuddin was a board member of Lebanon’s Intrabank, at the time the biggest financial institution in the Middle East and owner of a significant chunk of the airline. When Intrabank collapsed spectacularly in 1966, it wasn’t just a story for the business pages. The bank’s downfall was seen by many as the moment politics and finance collided.

Intra’s brilliant chairman, Yusuf Beidas, was seen by many in the Lebanese establishment as an upstart Palestinian who needed to be taught a lesson. Alamuddin recognised that the move to neutralise arguably the most powerful man in the country would backfire. Writing in his autobiography, he called it, “the beginning of the disintegration of Lebanon [by] a system so corrupt in style and morals that had plagued [the country] since independence and finally plunged the nation into civil war.”

Lebanon could do with a few more people with his integrity. In the meantime, we will have to hope our sons and daughters marry well.

MEET CLOONEY’S CURLER-WEARING MOTHER-IN-LAW

George Clooney’s future mother-in-law may look like a plain Jane sporting a head full of curlers on the streets of London, but don’t let these recent photos fool you!

Baria Alamuddin, whose gorgeous daughter Amal finally tamed avowed bachelor Clooney, is a bona fide beauty with a brain.

In fact, she’s a Middle Eastern version of Barbara Walters! The 66-year-old is an accomplishedjournalist who’s interviewed heads of state from Margaret Thatcher and Bill Clinton to Indira Ghandi. And she’s earned many male admirers, thanks to her stunning looks.

Clearly, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree – George’s knockout bride-to-be is an Oxford- and NYU law School- educated attorney and activist.

She needs to fix her hair and not walk around in curlers in public. After all she is representing George and future son in law. I guess Amul wiill look just like her mother as she gets older and this is the picture of what you will be seeing. need to get some nice wardrobe and do not walk around in curlers like you just do not care what people think and i am sure you do not. too bad george, you got what you wanted now be happy. bg

I don't think anyone's thrilled to be photographed in curlers and have that picture all over the media, but honestly, it's not a bad thing. It's not embarrassing or wrong or shameful or whatever. It's just a woman who curls her hair - as do many of us.

Well, I did not do anything wrong but I swear that in my entire life I have never seen a woman walking down the street so tanned '! In America you leave the hair salon with curlers? It 's normal? There may be different customs!

Many years ago lela it was almost normal for a woman to wear her hair in curlers during the day for instance, if she was going to go out that night.  Not everyone had hair dryers and certainly blow dryers were not available.

But it's not as prevalent today.  Perhaps she was wearing them to go to an event, taping, photo shoot, etc. and was going to have a hair stylist do the final comb out?  Who knows.

But really, how does that even reflect negatively on George?  Now if she were walking around in curlers with no clothes on then that give one a clue that perhaps she was losing her mind and that would be of concern if mental illness ran in the family.  

But simply wearing curlers in public somehow reflects badly on George?  Oh my we surely are picking at any little thing to try to make this relationship with Amal go away!  Because that's got to be the basis for some of this nitpicking.

I never thought it could harm George, I just thought that is not 'normal behave so' but it does not hurt anyone but herself, if it was in Italy would take it for a madwoman!

It's interesting what's considered acceptable dress or behavior in different countries.

I think that same sentiment would hold true in France where standards of dress are much more formal perhaps? What I mean is I read a Frenchman's advice for Americans in Paris. He said that sneakers were only okay if you're site seeing but that perhaps going to a restaurant that would not be acceptable.

Here in the US we have some pockets of that - for instance I think in Beverly Hills it still would be considered tacky to wear sneakers all the time - even if you're just going shopping.

But then in other parts of our country that would not be considered tacky at all - just being comfortable.

Oh and I wasn't specifically stating you thought it was shameful just blending two replies in one. Should have made that more clear.

Curlers in public is a no no and just plain wrong, unless hitting to Wal-mart. Hopefully she doesn't do this often.

I thought too it was the wrong thread but I looked closer where George and Celine went on holidays and then I got it. I think it's me wanted to point out that George and Celine were in Cap D'antibes. Like now Amal's cousin...maybe George recommended this place to them?

I know Joanna and I would probably hate being a celebrity and having my pic taken all the time.But wouldn't it be nice to live the lifestyle of the rich and the famous for just a little while. Especially now when it's summer and love is in the air... (Since I'm already off topic. I'm sorry You Brits lost against the Italians last night).

I wonder where he is taking Amal for the honeymoon? I guess not the same place as the cousin. If he honeymooned there? It's hard to find info on Amals family which is my defense for going off topic.
(The truth is I was never any good at staying on topic in the first place. Smile )

A career accelerator


Most of our employees chose Bain because they want to continue to learn throughout their careers. Bain is a career accelerator so the experience, exposure and learnings you will gain in a short amount of time will prove invaluable - just two or three years at Bain will open doors that others could not even fathom.
Whether you continue to progress within Bain, and deliver lasting results for influential organizations, or pursue the next step in your long-term career plan outside of Bain, we offer the best practical learning environment. Those who decide to leave Bain are equipped with a unique and transferable skill-set that enables them to run organizations of any size and thrive in any industry - our alumni network and former employees' stories offer continuous proof of this.
Here are some examples of industries where our alumni have put their Bain experience to work:

  • Global 500: Bain works with two-thirds of the Global 500 plus thousands of notable regional and local organizations. The experiences alone, but also the relationships with these influential clients translate into our people earning roles in these organizations years before they could have without their Bain experience.
  • Startups: Our people get an inside view of the day-to-day realities of running a business. The experience often inspires our alumni to pursue entrepreneurial opportunities.
  • Private equity: As the market leader in private equity consulting, it's no surprise that many of our alumni have found success in the private equity field.
  • Nonprofits: Our pro bono and volunteer work, along with our relationship with The Bridgespan Group, allows our people to make an impact in the community while at Bain, which many continue after leaving.

And sometimes your career path comes full circle. We have many alumni who leave for new experiencesoutside of Bain, only to return with new perspectives that help our clients and our firm to achieve great results.
Alumni stories
Bain alumni are an extraordinarily diverse, talented and accomplished group. Learn about the achievements of some of our alumni through their personal stories.

    Harlan Kent found two enduring loves when he joined Bain after college in 1985. The primary one was his wife Patty, to whom he has been happily married for the past twenty-three years. The second was for working with popular consumer brands, a "huge revelation" that became apparent during his very first consulting assignment, Kent says.
    During that assignment, which involved working at a textile plant that made sheets and towels for Laura Ashley, among other items, Kent says, "I realized that I was a very tactile person, that I liked to be able to touch the things I worked on." (He confesses that he was one of the few bachelor consultants who went so far as to purchase a Laura Ashley comforter for his bed at the time.) Since getting hooked on branded companies, Kent has worked for a remarkably wide range of top consumer labels. After leaving Bain in 1988, he championed products from Pepperidge Farm cookies, to Winchester bullets, to Isotoner gloves, until he joined premium candle maker Yankee Candle Company in 2001.

One of my online friends said her sister's working for Tala's husband in Singapore.
Another girl said on weibo that she heard from the more experienced colleagues that her judge boss once dated Amal for a long time, they were even close to engagement but somehow it didn't work out.

I  can't open PAN's first link. But  Amal's sister is Tala and her husband's name is Nagi Hamiye?

And PP, women always comes first don't you know? Smile

Well, looks like George is marrying into a pretty powerful family, so his comment of "marrying up" is completely justified. Smile

It can't be Amal's "judge boss" because she doesn't have one, unless it was at a time when she was an intern at that judge's office.

I don't know but that ex seems not to be Amal's boss...I think she's self-employed. Very Happy

Yeah I meant that woman who posted this said "her boss" once dated Amal.
