Managing Director

Our team is led by Antoun Massaad, a Lebanese-British multilingual national and his wife Christina. Their vision was to bring MENA credit data online in one place, searchable in Arabic and English for more accurate results - as many of the registries store the data only in Arabic. The reason behind this goal was so that companies around the world could trade securely with companies in the Arab world, as they do in Europe, the UK or USA – with good data visibility and accessibility. More business means more jobs, greater stability, less migration and more peace in countries which had been lagging behind in terms of data accessibility.

Lebanon Team

Our company motto is “Strive for Excellence” and we really take this to heart. Whether we are translating data, delivering reports, answering quotation requests or enhancing our technology, we always give our best. Beirut, Lebanon is home to our Cedarians – a team of highly qualified and multilingual researchers, finance and credit analysts, data strategists, data quality experts, translators, software and technology specialists. Our local knowledge, first-hand experience and boots on the ground are what give us the edge.

Since beginning to use Cedar Rose, our company has gained invaluable insights into corporate structures in jurisdictions that were previously closed to our researchers. Cedar Rose’s data access and credit reports are of superior quality and their breadth remains unparalleled, particularly in their ability to build credit profiles in the Middle East, and North Africa region. They also offer excellent customer service in assisting their clientele, and have developed a superior user interface, ensuring a seamless experience for their customers. We have been exceptionally satisfied with Cedar Rose’s services and would be pleased to expand our partnership and database usage.

I have worked with Cedar Rose for more than 5 years. The range of projects has covered almost every possible due diligence requirement, from the most basic document verification to some of the most challenging individual profiles. Cedar Rose has always performed to the highest standards of expertise.
Charles Kestenbaum

President at B&K International,


I have known and worked with the Cedar Rose team since about 1999-2000 and have found that their resources and information reflected in their due diligence reports to be top notch and accurate. My confidence in Cedar Rose and their products has allowed me to grow my business and expand the scope of services to my clients on a global scale and in particular, in areas of the world where data is difficult, if not almost impossible to collect. I truly value my on-going relationships with Antoun, Christina and the Cedar Rose Team.
