A Year of Success: Seal Cairo CoE

Soha Abdel Rahman | Nov 01, 2018

It’s hard to believe that the Seal Cairo Center of Excellence (CoE) was launched just over a year ago. After celebrating our one-year anniversary on October 2nd, we are excited to reflect on a season of growth and achievement. The Cairo CoE started with just 11 employees and over the year the team grew by 240%, with additional headcount planned. We quickly outgrew our initial workspace and on July 1st, 2018, moved to the office that we’re in today.

Our growth is not only about the numbers, but it also manifests most readily in the value that we bring to Seal and the market. By establishing ourselves in Cairo, we’ve created one of the best work environments the market has to offer, furthering Seal’s global vision and values. Our energetic team is passionate about quality, business success, and value through continuous process improvement and innovation.

Our Cairo CoE office is 62% male and 38% female and spans almost every function, including Development, Cloud Support & Tech Ops, IT Compliance & Risk Management, Consulting, Document Review, Finance, EMEA HR, EMEA Education, Pre-sales and Analytics. As Seal continues to innovate and reaffirm its market leader status, the CoE has been an integral part of the journey.
