Azmi Mikati

Azmi earned his BS in civil engineering from Columbia University in 1994. As an undergraduate, Azmi founded T-One, a telecom company providing long-distance services between the United States and international destinations. The firm proved to be quite successful and was sold in 1997 to a publicly traded long distance company based in the United States. Prior to joining M1, Azmi was Chief Executive Officer of Investcom, a leading emerging market mobile phone company. In 2005, Investcom listed its share on the London Stock Exchange, as well as the Dubai International Financial Exchange in what was the largest international listing of a Middle Eastern company at that time. This made Azmi the youngest CEO of a Middle Eastern publicly traded company. He served as a NonExecutive Director of MTN South Africa. He was a member of the Board of Trustees of International College and the St. Jude Children Cancer Center of Lebanon. Azmi is a member of Columbia University President's Council.
