Dr Sarra Achouri

Chief Marketing Officer

Sarra is one of our three co-founders. She has been there from day 1 and has been building our brand ever since.  She holds a PhD in Physics from the Cavendish Laboratory and was a Next Generation Fellow at the Centre for Trophoblast Research, both at the University of Cambridge. Her scientific background is at the interface between physics and biology which equipped her with design, trouble shooting and cross discipline communication skills. Before starting OBRIZUM Group Limited, she also led the team that created the new art-meets-science event brand “Creative reactions” for  “Pint of Science”, the largest global science festival. Following a huge success on a shoe string budget, the Cambridge pilot experiment grew into a global brand and is now running yearly in 10 cities around the world.

Sarra leads the Marketing and branding efforts at OBRIZUM Group Limited, including its CamBioScience,  OBRIZUM®, and OBRIZUM Media divisions.
