In the same context, Gawad Abaza was chosen after holding this position until now to serve as Regional General Manager for Kraft Foods for South, Central and East Africa, which was based in Johannesburg in appreciation of the great success achieved in Egypt and Levant.
In 2010 Gawad operated as Chairman and Managing Director of Kraft Foods Egypt and Levant, and under his supervision, the company made great achievements and expanded its investments in Egypt to became the regional center for manufacturing and exporting many of the company's products, including Cadbury, Flake, Moro, Oreo, Tuc, Tang, Halls, Chiclets, Trident, and Clorets.
Over the next two months, and during the transitional period, Basil Abul Ata and Gawad Abaza will work side by side to manage the company's business in the Levant region in order to ensure the seamless continuation of operations during the transitional period when managerial, marketing and financial responsibilities are handed over.
