Keeward Group is a technology company focused on the “long tail” in the media, art and culture industries. Led by Lebanese founder and CEO Cyril Hadji-Thomas, Keeward Group was formed earlier this year by bringing together three separate companies that Cyril has built – namely: 1) Bookwitty, a global, multilingual book retail platform; 2) Keeward, a digital production company, and 3) Levant Distributors, an international book and press distributor. Having processed more than 10M online orders since 2010 – with sales to 150+ countries – Cyril is focused on building an end-to-end platform that can monetize the “long tail” of books and other media on a global scale.
