Chantal Abou Jaoude's Story

Chantal Abou Jaoude is  a Lebanese Mechanical Engineer serving the Automotive Industry Aftermarket for the past 13 years with an aim at elevating the standards of this important yet largely under-developed sector in the region.

I founded my first company, EDGE, during my 4th year of Mechanical Engineering studies at AUB and EDGE Middle East, right after my Masters Degree in 2009, to cover the Iraqi market. While my companies’ core activities involve setting up and equipping high-end vehicle service and inspection facilities, I am most passionate about the part related to educating and training the decision makers as well as the technicians on new technologies and safety concepts; after all, what they decide and how they do it affects the lives of millions of people driving on the roads each day.

With Lebanon and Iraq offering limited exposure, I have recently accepted the challenge of setting up MAHA Middle East FZE – a regional subsidiary for a leading German manufacturer of equipment, handling the Automotive Aftermarket Project activities in 14 regional countries including the Levant, Gulf, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

I am (the only female) member of the municipal council of the Municipality of Zalka where I live and run my office in Lebanon; I take every opportunity to assist new and emerging young, and especially female entrepreneurs, in their endeavors. The main driver behind my activities is my belief in the importance of sharing knowledge and exposure, in serving the community and in the valuable influence women can have when introduced to male-dominated industries!
