Mr. Ayman Mohamed Soliman brings 22 years of experience managing a group of 200+ companies spanning a diverse set of industries, with a global investment and transaction record of accomplishment, and a long-standing track record in managing complex assets and running mega transactions. Over the past 17 years, Mr. Soliman served as a board member of a wide range of companies with various capacities with Orascom Investment Holding, Beltone Financial, La Mancha Holding (Gold mining), Euronews plc, RiverBank (SME Banks in Europe), Auerbach Grayson (USA), Texegy (Oil & Gas USA), Ora Developers BV (Real estate), Nile Sugar Co (Egypt), Ezdehar Fund to name a few.

Mr. Ayman Soliman was the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Gemini Holding for the past 10 years, a company investing in various industries. Having led multiple M&A transactions for the Gemini group, as well as startups and Greenfields, to build a diversified portfolio of assets in more than eight distinct industrial verticals. These fields included, technology, food, fashion, agroindustry, energy, financial services and fintech, media, and real estate. The key success in this period was the ability to navigate through two global economic cycles and a revolution with a complex portfolio and manage to hedge key areas of exposure against market and volatility risks.

Prior to joining Gemini, Mr. Soliman headed Orascom Telecom Holding's corporate strategy team where he spearheaded the formulation of the company's business development and growth strategy. In addition to his role in the acquisition of Wind Telecom, by Weather Investments II in 2005, Mr. Soliman also helped formulate the turnaround strategy of Wind Telecom.

Moreover, as Vice President of EFG-Hermes Private Equity, focused on managing technology funds. Through this career, he gained experience in various industries and dealt with global investment banks on landmark IPOs and M&A's in the banking, Cement, Steel, and food sectors. That period witnessed an accelerated growth in the equities market in Egypt which paved the way to the merger between EFG-Hermes and CIIC back in 2002, where he was part of the transaction team.

Mr. Soliman holds a Masters in Science degree in International Business and Finance and a Bachelors in Science degree in Economics with a Minor in Computer Science, both from the American University in Cairo.
