Dana Alhanbali

Co-Founder and Managing Partner, Kuwait

Dana Alhanbali is the co-founder and managing partner of the award wining creative firm Beattie + Dane, based in Kuwait.

A designer by trade, she moved from Kuwait to Dubai for almost 10 years. Her career began in branding and business development working with clients across different sectors like retail, fashion, luxury, banking and telecommunications for a global media and branding firm before she became Group Director of JWT Kuwait.

Working with passionate people who collaborate to develop work that stands for something meaningful is what drives her.

She believes that the best stories are the ones about why people do what they do, and that is what inspired the inception of Beattie and Dane, a company who in its the first year of business won a place in the top 3 Independent agencies of the year in MENA at Dubai Lynx 2017, a first for Kuwait as a country, along with a Gold for PR and Silver for branded content and entertainment, and brought home a Cannes Lion in 2017.
