If you’ve ever been to San Francisco’s Silicon Valley then you’ve probably met many successful Lebanese men and women who are not only holding key positions in big renown tech companies but are also behind life changing innovations impacting humanity.

With a rich academic background joining both Harvard and Stanford, Ramzi played a big role as Dolby’s Executive Vice President in the Marketing and Business Development field as well as the Consumer Licensing Division which generated more than 75% of Dolby’s revenues.

Haidamus also played a pivotal role in the adoption of Dolby technology in worldwide standards such as the famous DVD and Bluray. In fact, his contribution to the worldwide launch of the DVD format, won Dolby a joint Emmy Award in 1999 for scientific and technological advancement.

If you’re a fan of the Oscars, then you would be happy to know that he was also behind the deal which turned the Kodak Theatre, hosting the yearly awaited Oscars event, into what is now called the Dolby Theatre, a first class surround sound live entertainment venue.

With such an amazing track record, one would think this man would have a difficult ego centric personality but meeting with him in one of Beirut’s hotels a few days before Nokia’s big announcement, we were truly inspired by his calm character, his modest approach and his love to his family and homeland.

    Ramzi as well as all Lebanese working abroad that are successful are driven with a no nonsense approach. That was apparent when I worked at Dolby a few years back and Ramzi would be driving executive meetings that I reported into.

    If only the Lebanese people and their reflective politicians in Lebanon stop thinking of themselves as a group of sectarian heards as opposed to being citizens of the country with equal rights and duties we would have more success in Lebanon rather than in the Lebanese diaspora.

    Good luck to Ramzi. His success is well earned.
