CEO & Founder
Rabih Fakhreddine has enhanced the culinary, entertainment and nightlife offering in the Middle East, with a wealth of exciting concepts introduced under the 7 Management umbrella. By cultivating a deep understanding of his audience and clientele, Fakhreddine has developed venues that truly resonate with their guests across Lebanon and the UAE, with plans for global expansion in the next twelve months.
Born in Lebanon, Rabih Fakhreddine graduated from the American University of Beirut in 2006, where he studied the intricacies of Business Marketing. Following his studies, he gained experience within the FMCG industry, starting with a sales position at Transmed, where he handled the P&G account. His passion and personality led to an idiosyncratic role in the British American Tobacco (BAT), including managerial positions for the Levant region.
A visionary at heart, Fakhreddine stepped out of the corporate world to follow his ardour for the food and entertainment industry. In 2015, he opened Seven Sisters, a luxurious oasis of music and cuisine within the heart of Beirut, and formed 7 Management, to handle the operations shortly afterwards. His eclectic blend of enthusiasm, creativity and perseverance can be seen in the success of Seven Sisters and acted as a catalyst for the development of the ten food, beverage and entertainment concepts that followed shortly afterwards.
7 Management now own and operate entertainment concepts such as The Theater, B018.dxb, Seven Sisters, Antika, February 30 and Kahwet Beirut, in Dubai and Lebanon, and will soon open in KSA. With plans for international expansion, the group aims to establish a presence in Greece, UK, US, and Egypt before 2022.
