I never met Tarek in person but worked together through email communication. His warm and personable character was very apparent even in his email communications. Always, polite, kind, and warmhearted. He was very proud of his market(s) and always wanted to share the great work that was being done by his teammates on the Marketing Exchange. He was such an easygoing person. The world is a little darker without him. His global McDonald’s family in the US/Chicago/MHQ will miss him greatly. Rest easy, Tarek. Thanks for being such a ray of sunshine and so pleasant to work with.
