Hussein M. Dajani is leaving Nissan Motor Co. for a partner role with Deloitte Digital in the Middle East.
During his 20-year career, Dajani has been able to demonstrate astute leadership, career growth, corporate success, strategic thinking as well as building a personal brand (through thought leadership and conference presentations) – all of which were achieved by working for great companies and with great talents.
Over the past few years, Dajani has worked with the likes of WPP and Publicis overseeing some of their largest regional clients (such as stc, Vodafone, Nokia, Visa and HSBC) and was recognised as a high potential leader by WPP being awarded the renowned ‘WPP Young High Potential Leaders’ Award from Sir Martin Sorrell himself, as well as receiving regional awards from the likes of Gulf Marketing Review, which identified him as one of the 40 top marketing professionals in the region, being voted by the Huffington Post as among the 10 people changing the marcomms landscape in the MENA region, voted as being among the top 200 CX leaders globally to watch in 2021 and 2022, the BTX Top Executive Award 2021.
Dajani also sits on the Advisory Board of CMO Council Middle East, the CXPA Middle East Regional Leadership Council, and is an advisory director with The Customer Institute.
Since working on the agency side, Dajani has transitioned to the client-side and worked with some fantastic brands, that are crossing the digital and experience divide, in senior leadership roles.
Dajani’s core expertise lies in the digital marketing and tech space, evolving over the years from a pure player marketeer. Starting his career with some of the worlds’ greatest communication companies, today Dajani is the general manager for digital and CX transformation with Nissan Motor Co. for Africa, the Middle East, India, Turkey, and Oceania overseeing some of the most dramatic customer transformations the company has had to go through in recent times. His contribution to the organisation was recognised by senior leadership and led him to win the AMIEO Chairperson Nissan Way Award in July 2021.
As of April 2022, Dajani will be joining Deloitte Digital in the Middle East region as a partner for the advertising, marketing, and commerce (AM&C) discipline.
