1 Nayla Khawam, CEO, Orange Jordan. Holding the CEO position of Orange Jordan since July 2009, Nayla Khawam, who will leave the role on October 1 to return to the firm's Paris HQ, has maintained Orange Jordan's position amid tough competition from Zain Jordan and Umniah. She also oversaw the launch of Jordan's first 3G network. Despite operating in one of the Middle East's most competitive markets, Khawam has successfully defended the telco's position in the market. In the first quarter of the year, Orange Jordan managed to increase its net profit to JD 20 million ($28.2m) by the end of March 2012, a rise of 2.5% compared to the same period last year. Prior to being CEO Khawam was area director for the Paris region of France Telecom. Khawam has also worked as a forecast manager in charge of building econometric models for the telecom industry, as a consultant in BIPE (Bureau d'Informations et de Pr'visions Economiques) and as a product manager in the Peugeot marketing department. Khawam holds a certificate in Statistical Economics from the National Institute for Statistics and Management Economy, and a certifi- cate in Mathematics from the University of Paris.
