About

Hichame Assi is CEO of Envato, the global leader in digital creative assets.

With over two decades of experience in digital and e-commerce platforms – including as CEO of HotelsCombined and leading them from start-up to international industry leader – Assi has an ability to scale businesses and adapt to fast-paced and competitive environments. Agile thinking and focused execution have been instrumental in driving innovation in his current role in the creative industry.

A 3rd culture kid and true global citizen, Hichame was born in France, lived his formative years in Aleppo, Syria and completed his post-graduate education at the University of London. All of which have instilled in him a deep respect for the diversity of culture and thought. This perspective and expertise position him to lead a global team and navigate the complexities of the market in an ever-evolving digital landscape.

In Hichame's spare time, he can be found reading about the fields of Open & Social Innovation, mentoring entrepreneurs, decompressing to the soothing sounds of NY Hardcore/punk and negotiating with his son.
