Abdul-Rahman Kotb Of Alexandria Modern Trade Company An Export Management and Localization Firm From Egypt


How did you start the first time in the import export business?

Being an entrepreneur has been always my dream since I was a little kid and had the common perception that the entrepreneur is a handsome man wearing a suit carrying his Samsonite. Day after day this dream kept growing with me to become the main reason I wake up early everyday at 5:00am thinking what will be my achievement for this beautiful day.

I was first introduced to the export business when I got my first job in a fertilizers factory as an export specialist. right after I've got my B.Sc. in Agricultural Mechanization degree. I was supposed to launch the export business in the factory without any previous experience and even without an experienced manager to help me in my mission. It took me exactly 12 months of digging, trial and errors, ups and downs, training courses to secure my first successful export shipment to Lebanon which was a real victory to me. After this order I realized that my career path was determined and I'm on the right track for me .... it didn't take too long to secure more export deals to KSA, Iran, Algeria, and Netherlands and I started to look for my next career move.





I joined a marketing consultancy firm focusing on international marketing projects which gained me superior experience in major problems always exporters face in their business and how it can be solved. At this time and during one of my business travels to USA I figured out what exactly my private business would be about. Introducing the Export Management company concept to the Egyptian business was just an amazing idea and was exactly what the market needs.

International business is really what I’m passionate about. I cannot imagine someone can resist the magic of exploring new lands like our ancestors realizing how far cultures’ differences can generate endless business opportunities just by opening your mind and heart to it.

The real fun happens when you push your limits, go out feeling the thrill of trying new ideas, knocking new doors, exploring uninhabited roads as I believe that great achievements always lie beyond these places.
