The honour was awarded at a VIP reception before the One World Alumni Dinner on Thursday Sept 20. Each year, the award is granted to Saint Mary's University Alumni within 10 years of receiving a Bachelor's degree or within five years of receiving a Graduate degree.
Saeed, who has served as SimplyCast's President and Chief Executive Officer since 2009, attended Saint Mary's University from 1998 through 2004 and graduated with Masters of Business Administration, a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and a Certificate of Human Resource.
"I am deeply honored to be selected from the thousands of outstanding alumni that Saint Mary's University boasts," said Saeed El-Darahali, President and CEO of SimplyCast. "Nova Scotia is the best province to build and grow a company and Saint Mary's provided me with all the skills needed to not only influence and grow SimplyCast, but my community as well."
Candidates for the Young Alumnus of the Year Award are considered annually by the Saint Mary's University Alumni Association's Awards & Nomination Committee, whose decision must be ratified by the Alumni Office.
