It was a privilege to work with Tarek - and simply to know him. He was always so thoughtful in his feedback, so generous with his time, and so liked and respected by everyone he partnered with.
Tarek so effortlessly lived the McDonald’s values in everything he did. The one that stands out for me was how inclusive he was -- he brought everyone along and created a welcoming space wherever he went. I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to work with him, and to know him - though not for nearly long enough.
His thoughtful perspective, big smile and rewarding laughter will be greatly missed.
