The successful business man passed away on Tuesday March 9 at the age of 70 after battling a long illness. The funeral took place last week on Thursday in Beirut. Antoine was known as the founding father and genius of the media industry.
Antoine was a very loving man who also loved success. For this reason, he founded his very own Choueiri Group which helped many media organizations and other business companies succeed. This man has almost 35 years of experience in broadcasting as well as in sports and commercials.
Antoine was not only known in Lebanon, he was famous worldwide especially in the Middle East. In 2007 the magazine Arabian Business named Choueiri as one of the 100 most powerful Arabs. The successful businessman showed his generous and humane side by helping many charities and organizations.
Choueiri had a passion for sports that no one had and wanted to make history with this passion of his. He became the president of the basketball team Sagesse in Lebanon. With Antoine’s help, the team won the title Asia’s Champions in 1999. In 2008, his name was honored by the team so he will never be forgotten even after his death.
Antoine’s net worth is estimated to be one billion dollars and get this, every year 20% is added to this amount! Wow, talk about success!
Antoine Choueiri will sure be missed. When he was alive, every time I see him on TV all I see was this huge smile on his face. He wanted people to just enjoy the media and sports and simply forget the wars and political issues.
Our deep condolences go out to the Choueiri family. May his soul rest in peace.
