Wissam's career in technology began with Microsoft Adcenter, where he was part of the first team that created the platform in 2003.

He has a deep understanding of large-scale distributed systems and a strong enthusiasm for machine learning, keeping himself updated with the latest advancements and trends.
With his previous endeavors, Wissam was always tasked with customer acquisition. Wissam noticed that most prospecting platforms needed more modern and easier to use. They required a lot of manual work, which was boring and time-consuming. As a tech-lover, Wissam built his systems to make things easier. But he knew he could do even better. So, after acquiring Azuqua, he decided to use the power of AI technology to create something new and amazing. That's how Truebase was born! Wissam wanted to make prospecting simple and efficient for himself and everyone worldwide. And now, with Truebase, he's doing just that.
