Hassan M. Fattah has been a Partner at Brunswick since 2014 with over 21 years of experience as a communications leader in the Middle East. He has covered the changing dynamics of the Middle East, paying particular attention to demographic shifts and youth culture in the region and its impact on the region’s direction and politics.
Between 2007 and 2013, Fattah helped launch and later served as editor-in-chief of The National, the regional English-language newspaper published in Abu Dhabi. He previously served as Middle East correspondent for The New York Times.
In 2003, he co-founded Iraq Today, Iraq’s first post-Saddam English-language newspaper, written and edited by Iraqis. As editor, Fattah turned Iraq Today into an internationally recognized publication before its closure due to security concerns.
