PIPA appoints Murteza Sharef as new agent for the Middle East

PIPA is proud to announce that Murteza Sharef will be representing PIPA in the Middle East from now on. Mr Sharef speaks six languages and will promote PIPA's online auction platform in the Arab world as well as PIPA's brand name through public auctions, organised in the Middle East. Murteza is also helping people from Middle East with direct sales between Middle East and Europe.

High-qualified political refugee

Murteza Sharef was born in the Iraqi city of Kirkuk in 1980. He studied business and international management at Al-Mustansiriya University in Baghdad before fleeing the country as a political refugee in 2000 after dictator Saddam Hussein targeted his family. Together with his mother and brother, he has been living in Denmark ever since, where he got married with two children and works for an agency which organises transportation and hotel stay for people flying over to another country for a medical treatment.

Mr Sharef has been racing pigeons since he was eight years old, collaborating with fanciers all over the world and achieving success in one loft races held in the Middle East. Thanks to those worldwide contacts, he now speaks six languages: Arabic, Danish, English, Turkish, Kurdish and Persian.

Better birds for Arab clients

Mr Sharef has built a strong network in the Middle East over the past years. After a successful three-month trial period, he was officially appointed as PIPA agent for the Middle East.

Mr Sharef will set up a business structure called PIPA Middle East (PME) to pursue his dream of becoming the link between the Middle East and Europe. He has therefore launched a Facebook page called PIPA Middle East Way To Success where he will post video reports. In the future, PIPA Middle East will also organise public auctions and possibly participate in one loft races in the Middle East to the end of providing Arab clients with high-quality birds and making the PIPA brand known all around the Arab world.
