Kamel holds bachelor's and master’s degrees in business administration, an MBA, a master's degree in Islamic art and architecture from AUC, and a PhD in information systems from the London School of Economics and Political Science.

He is a member of the American Chamber of Commerce in Egypt's Board of Governors and previously served as the board’s president from 2019 to 2021.

Kamel's journey at the AUC spans more than 40 years, during which he earned three academic degrees and spent nearly three decades as a faculty member.

In late November, President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi issued a presidential decree to establish a new board of directors of the CBE, led by Hassan Abdallah, currently the acting governor of the bank, for one year starting 27 November.

The new board includes Rami Ahmed Adel Abul-Naga and Tarek Mohamed Badawy El-Kholy as deputy governors of the CBE. The board also comprised other prominent figures and experts.

President El-Sisi renewed in August the mandate for Abdallah as the acting governor of the CBE.

Abdallah was appointed in August 2022 after his successor, Tarek Amer, resigned amid an economic crunch exacerbated by the war in Ukraine.
