Naniss Gadel-Rab

Vice President Customer Development,
Unilever Canada

Born and raised in the Middle East made Naniss a diverse leader who appreciates different backgrounds, ethnicities, and cultures. As an engineering graduate, she joined Unilever Middle East Soap factory 24 years ago. Her passion to be at the heart of the business led her to quickly join the Sales team where she progressed through different roles and worked in more than 8 countries and across 3 continents. She was privileged to partner with many global retailers throughout her journey such as Carrefour (France) , Sainsburys (UK), Shoprite (South Africa), Metro (Germany) and many more. In 2007, Naniss moved to Canada in what she thought was a one-year secondment that turned out to be a life changer for her and her family (husband and 2 sons). Naniss’ purpose is “Making the Impossible, Possible” and inspire those around her to find their BEST version of themselves.
