Sherif Ismail Mohamed (Arabic: شريف إسماعيل‎  pronounced [ʃɪˈɾiːf esmæˈʕiːl]; born 6 July 1955[2]) is an Egyptian engineer served as Prime Minister of Egypt between 2015 and 2018. Previously he was Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources from 2013 to 2015.

Career[edit]

Ismail studied mechanical engineering at Ain Shams University and graduated in 1978.[3] He has held managerial posts at state-run petrochemical and natural gas firms. He served as the executive deputy chairman and then chairman of the Egyptian holding company for petrochemicals (ECHEM), which was established in 2002.[4][5] Next he was named chairman of the Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company (EGAS).[6]

Then he worked as the managing director of the state-run oil holding company, Ganoub El Wadi Petroleum Holding Company (GANOPE).[7] and became chairman of the company.[8] He was appointed as Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources on 16 July 2013 as part of the interim cabinet led by Hazem Al Beblawi.[9] He replaced Sherif Hassan Haddara in the post.[10]

Ismail was appointed as Prime Minister on 12 September 2015.[11]

On June 5, 2018 Ismail submitted his letter of resignation to Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi.[12] However, he still remained Prime Minister in caretaker capacity.[13] Two days after Ismail submitted his letter, Sisi appointed Mostafa Madbouly, Minister of Housing and Urban Utilities, to succeed him as Prime Minister.[14]

Following his departure as Prime Minister, it was reported on June 9, 2018 that Ismail had been nominated to serve as the top aide to Sisi.[15]
