Malek Abi Nader Biography
During his first years of University studies, Malek Abi Nader also started a training course at Union Nationale, one of the leading insurance companies in Lebanon at the time. Unfortunately, due to a family accident, M. Abi Nader had to interrupt his university studies and insurance training for two years. Pursuant to this unexpected and sudden turn of events in his life, he refocused his attention exclusively to developing his career in the insurance industry. By 1981, M.Abi Nader had become Chief Underwriter at Union Nationale at the Jal el-Dib branch, a position that gave him a solid foundation in the Underwriting field.
Later on in 1982, he was sent to NASCO GROUP – France, located in the Rue de Berry in Paris. Here he worked for a year as a member of Gabriel Bejjani’s team, an experience that afforded him rigorous training in and exposure to the Reinsurance field. After returning to Beirut, he founded his own brokerage firm in 1983. Called MAN Insurance Brokers, his new insurance venture rapidly grew into one of the most renowned brokering houses in town due in particular to the successful performance of a highly qualified and efficient team of staff personally coached by M.Abi Nader.
Today, true to form, he continued expanding his personal portfolio to include international clients. On the Lebanese domestic business scene, he succeeded in developing a local consistent portfolio. On the international scene, his contacts and numerous trips enabled him to acquire a new clientele with substantial portfolio premiums. Furthermore, his long-term relationship with NASCO GROUP – France, particularly with Mr. Gabriel Bejjani and his team, helped him successfully place his new portfolios.
