  1. Djamel has so many strengths. His passion, vision and decisiveness are what people notice first. His ability to easily identify roadblocks and issues and maintain a platform for continuous improvement is impressive. Djamel has been the CEO of Viber for 2 years. In these 2 years, he’s completely changed and improved the way we work and the Viber platform. He’s added new revenue streams to Viber, which grew revenue over 100% while at the same time maintaining user privacy and security (you wouldn’t have a data breach at Viber like you hear about at other messaging or tech companies). He’s grown the team and our global footprint, added offices in key markets. He has a willingness to take risks and also adapts easily to change. He also makes hard changes sound personal – meaning he shows people just how hard decisions can be (he’s not just executing on a top-down management style); he explains what the options were on a high-level to show that there was thoughtfulness and hard choices made so that employees can understand the challenges and get behind decisions easier.
