Hesham Mekawi

Hesham is a Senior Executive at BP and, in his capacity as Regional President for North Africa, reports into the Chief Operating Officer, Upstream Strategy & Regions, who reports into the Chief Executive Officer, Upstream.
In his 25 years with BP, Hesham has consistently demonstrated outstanding results. From his early days as a commercial analyst, through 13 years leading BP’s business in Egypt, and now in his current role as the head of BP’s North Africa business he has always ensured delivery against ambitious objectives, both on a personal level and within his teams.
Hesham has had great success in empowering local talent within the global corporation. Under his leadership, the North Africa leadership team, based in Egypt, is now made up of 90% Egyptian nationals. This is a major change from my early days in the business, when only a few Egyptians – including him– were on the leadership team. In addition, Egyptians now constitute around 85% of the workforce in Egypt, compared to around 35% when he first became Regional President.
