Maha Obeid

Research Manager

Maha Obeid is MediaConnect’s Research Manager. Originally, Influencing’s PR reporter she now manages the company’s industry leading research team.

Maha boasts that her middle name is pedantic and she casts a careful eye over the integrity of the Influencing database. As well as managing MediaConnect’s researchers she contributes to the daily updating process and liases with clients on any specific research requests they may have.

She started her career as a cadet reporter at the Herald Sun in Melbourne. Her freelance writing took her as far as Beirut, where she spent time with family while working as a news stringer. Before joining MediaConnect she did a stint in PR, working in the gulf. She managed accounts including the inaugural Doha Tribeca Film Festival in 2009, where she was knee-deep in press releases and missed Robert De Niro’s apearance.

She now lives in the inner-west of Sydney and her favourite sport is cafe crawling.
