“Travel and Auto related posts are consistently among the most popular and engaging content on Facebook. Both industries naturally attract huge audiences and drive active conversations. Over time we have developed the platform and refined techniques to help marketers participate in and amplify those affiliations,” commented Jonathan Labin, head of Facebook for Middle East, Africa and Pakistan.

“I’m delighted to have Terry join our team. His global experience and deep insight will help Facebook to better serve its clients across two of the most important industries in the MENA region. Many of our best global examples already come from this part of the world and we hope that the region’s reputation as a center of marketing excellence will continue to grow,” added Labin.

He has worked across multiple travel verticals and in his most recent post as Head of Digital Strategy for the Dubai-based international luxury hotel company, Jumeirah Group.
