This enthusiasm sums up the zest for life and career of Eehab Khaled, EDM-MPA’15, Lead Global Response and Intelligence Officer, NBCUniversal. Eehab’s motivation comes from the great sense of accomplishment he gets at the end of the workday knowing that an entire broadcast company with thousands of employees trust him and what he calls the “best TEAM in the industry” to keep them safe and secure.
If there is one thing emergency managers know, teamwork is fundamental for effective crisis planning and management. When the 2022 FIFA World Cup kicked off on November 20 in Qatar, the first World Cup held in the Arab and Muslim world, Eehab knew that teamwork and a well-functioning unit would be key, and he takes advantage of every opportunity to highlight that team.
“It was an honor and my absolute pleasure to have been a crucial part of the Global Security and Intelligence effort on behalf of NBCU and Telemundo at the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Doha, Qatar. We took care of business as usual through hard work and dedication, no matter the situation. I am proud to have done it alongside the best team in the industry. An incredible and unforgettable experience that I am grateful for,” says Eehab Khaled.
Born in Brooklyn, a first-generation Lebanese American, Eehab attributes his success to his hometeam—his wife, family and community. “Throughout my academic and professional career, I’ve been blessed to have a great support system which includes my family and my wife, who motivate me each day to work harder, be better, and aim to reach greater heights.
