Home / About Us
The Ougarit Group works across Palestine for a number of national and international clients. It is headquartered at the Ougarit Building in Al-Bireh, Ramallah.
Established by its Directors, Amal Daraghmeh Masri and Khaled Masri in 1998, it has its roots firmly in Palestine but benefits from the international experience (France, Italy) of its Directors and its many associates.
Ougarit believes in transparency and fairness in business. We believe that businesses have a right to succeed. With this in mind, we are passionate about the work we do for our clients.
We prefer to partner with clients to build long-term relationships – we are part of their success and they, in turn, become part of ours.
Ougarit's Corporate Social Responsibility policy is as follows:
- we will not work with cigarette producers or organizations creating products that are harmful to humans, animals or the environment
- we train new graduates in graphic design and marketing, allowing them to gain as much experience as possible and become professionals in their field
- we support various local and national charities who focus on health issues (Dunya Center for Female Cancers and Breast Cancer Awareness Events) and business education for young people
We realize we are in the people business.
For example, we don’t deal only with inanimate products and services, but rather with the people who promote or sell the products and services and, of course, their target audience.
We want you to know what type of people we are – these quick questions and answers show that we are diverse, fun loving, professional and extraordinary people.
We are Ougarit...
