Mohamed Al-Khereiji was recently appointed as chairman of the board of directors at MBC Media Solutions (MMS).
MMS, a new in-house commercial and advertising sales unit, was launched in partnership between MBC Group, the largest and leading media company in the MENA region, and Engineer Holding Group (EHG), a prominent Saudi media group that has been operating in the Kingdom for more than 40 years.
Al-Khereiji received a bachelor’s degree in finance from Prince Sultan University in 2006. Six years later he obtained an executive master’s degree of business administration from the London-based Business School, formerly Cass.
From 2006 to 2007 he worked as an analyst for Deutsche Bank in London. From 2009, and for nearly four years, he was director of business development at Al Arabiya before becoming its deputy CEO in 2013. Three years later he became the CEO of the company, which some market reports listed as one of the top global outdoor advertising companies in 2019.
Al-Khereiji has also been vice president of the Abdulelah Al-Khereiji Group, which was founded in 1980.
He is also CEO of Al-Wasael Al-Saudia, a media and advertising company that recently won a bid to operate the stadium of King Saud University.
In 2017 he was selected to head the advertising committee at the Riyadh Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
In September MBC Group acquired a minority equity stake in Al Arabiya which is part of EHG, where Al-Khereiji is CEO.
