Charles Nahhas
Charles Nahhas is the Middle East distributor of Montegrappa and the founder of luxury gift ecommerce site, Haditi.

Self-proclaimed as Lebanese hardware with British software, Nahhas was born in Beirut just before the 1975 Lebanese Civil War and moved with his family to the UK. He studied Electronic Engineering and worked as a Telecommunications Instrumentation Engineer before realising that he wanted a job title with fewer letters. He embraced his passion for luxury goods and moved to Dubai to sell expensive products to the wealthy and ensure the artisans and artists who produce them are supported. He sees himself as a Robin Hood, but he can’t ride a horse and isn’t very good with a bow and arrow.

Through Montegrappa, he has supported art, literature, music, and sports in the UAE. Despite his failings as an equestrian and archer, he is an enthusiast of outdoor pursuits and extreme sports. He is a founder of RollDXB, the Middle East’s first roller disco, and has his own watersports company. Somewhat childish at heart, Nahhas is often seen skating around Dubai or surfing along the coast in superhero costumes.
