The political situation in Egypt may have hit the Mansours hard over the last couple of years, but their business looks to be heading in the right direction again.

The Mansour Group success story unfolded over three gradual phases: establishment and integration into the market; attracting international brands to build successful partnerships with while introducing its own brands to Egypt; and having its eye firmly on the future — fast tracking the group to further success with its strong balance sheets and structured investment strategy. It all began with one man; founder Loutfy Mansour who established the company.

Starting out in the cotton industry in the late 1940s, Mansour had a sharp business acumen that laid the strong foundation on which his sons — Youssef Mansour (pictured), Mohamed Mansour, and Yasseen Mansour — have led the company to an even stronger position.
