The BLender zooms in today on Both Al-Ali Brothers. In the previous post, we talked about Meshal Al-Ali's new MeShoot website, and now we will be shining the spotlights on his brother; a very talented individual and a young Kuwaiti who is very patriotic and is willing to give his country more than anyone else. He is also the Deputy General Manager of 52 Degrees Company:
Don Hamad Sami Al-Ali
Hamad Graduated From Kuwait University Majoring in Mass Communication-Media
What does 52 degrees represent to you?
A very important and a special step in my life, because we were the first people to come up with a new and different concept in Kuwait, no one has done it before. From 52 degrees, we created a new cultural concept in our society that was carefully studied and planned, all based on courage, will and ambitions of some young Kuwaitis.
Who started 52 degrees and who came up with it?
52 Degrees Idea was created after we studied the small projects in Kuwait and we also researched their marketing and advertising needs, best places to sell the creative products and their sales offices; and from here we decided to create a store that blends and includes all these services with a very important policy which is "that all products and services must only be Local."
How can you describe 52 Degree's Experience?
A very useful Experience and it has positively effected my career and profession in many fields including the business, media, fashion and art fields. I now have many connections in Kuwait and World Wide. 52 Degrees has given me a very important responsibility knowing the fact that a big project like this is now successfully spread across the whole world and i really work so hard to please myself and 52 Degrees' fans, audience and people.
Where and what do you want to reach with 52 Degrees?
I want 52 Degrees to be the First Local Department Store to open abroad. We really want everyone to be pleased with what 52 Degrees has achieved and support 52 Degree's team for their tremendous effort!
Own Personal and Business plans:
For the time being , i am only focusing on 52 Degrees, its taking more than 12 hours of my time, even in weekends and holidays.
We all know that Al-Watan TV is one of the most important and most powerful marks in Kuwait from both media and local sides, but would 52 Degrees really be as successful as it is today if it wasn't for Al-Watan TV and Newspaper?
Having a Powerful Project + Being special and having a hardworking team is what makes a brand, product and a business really successful. And yes indeed, the media plays a really important and a major role in marketing and advertising for a product, but the Media won't really succeed without a really good and a professional media plan.
What's your personal life like?
I'm Down to Earth, I'm a workaholic and really ambitious, i like to meet all people from all ages. I love socializing and communicating with different age groups and genders.
