Profile: Nadine Richet (Lebanon/France)

nadine richetLebanese native, born in Egypt, I moved with my family to Beirut at the age of 4 years. I studied first in the French High school in Beirut (Lycée Français) and obtained my scientific baccalaureate (option mathematics). Then I graduated with a BA degree (a double major) in Economics and Statistics from the American University of Beirut (AUB).

In Lebanon, I worked for around three years in the bank sector (documentary credit department) before taking the decision to leave to Paris for better job opportunities and mainly to flee the civil war crisis, which started at that time in 1975. I worked for more twenty years and was naturalized French. Today, with more than 20 years’ experience in various fields (international trade, export, marketing, communication, events…), I took the deliberate decision to go through an International MBA degree in order to boost my career and look for new job opportunities abroad (mainly Dubai or back to roots Beirut). In the year 2000, I went further in my studies and obtained a master degree in International trade from the CTI (International Technical Training Organization). Arabic and French are my mother tongue and I am quite fluent in English.


Nadine and Sustainability:

Nowadays, sustainability is one of the main concern of all nations. It is now than ever to build up awareness, to think green for a healthier and happier life. I am highly sensitive and involved in this particular issue, especially after facing a long civil war creating ecological disaster, polluting water (especially in the Mediterranean Sea), impacting the traffic jam, air and climate polluting caused by the use of chemical weapons, appearance of new diseases and climatic disasters.

Here below some pictures of how Lebanon is polluted vs how it should be. Those pictures shows to which extend the role of sustainable development is key in this area of the world.

Great idea of inviting an external expert in transportation issue.
