Active businessman, investor, philanthropist, and above all an adventurous soul.

Our president has traveled the five continents, invested in the whole food supply chain production and factories in almost all of them, and helped to generate wealth and jobs in much of Africa and the Middle East.

Without his vision, investment, and active involvement, none of this would be possible.

Since 2015, Mahdi Hassani has been involved in the sustainable development of the island of Socotra by financing and managing projects in the sectors of fisheries, education, energy, and now tourism.

His passion? The adventure.

His greatness? His heart.

As a curiosity… He speaks 7 languages.

Hussein (Operations Manager) - Socotra Trip
Operations Manager

Originally from Socotra, there is nothing that happens on the island that he cannot solve or find. We tell him that he is like Google, if it is not in Google it does not exist, then the same, if Hossim has not found out, it has not happened.

He knows and loves his island like nobody else, and, best of all, he is passionate about showing it, introducing you to its people, surprising you with unknown details.

He sees chameleons like nobody else! And he speaks the funniest English you will ever find.

His passion? His daughters

His greatness? His generosity

As a curiosity… He loves lobster with pasta and cheese, a combination we cannot understand 😉
