The Founders


As a Senior Civil Engineer Hatem JAMOUSSI has an extensive knowledge and experience of managing, directing and monitoring high profile and challenging projects.
He has a long track record of delivering projects in a broad range of sectors, with the Philosophy to structure and prioritize work effectively. And naturally, as an up-to-date Project Manager, Hatem realized after 13 years working in different areas and roles that “Project management” was the missing link in construction industry in Tunisia.

Hatem decided in 1999 to bridge the gap with a friend among the most illustrious Engineers in France, Jean Paul Bousquet Founder of COPLAN ingénierie, and that’s how Optima Ingénierie was born, with its typical overall approach: taking in each project the leadership in key areas such as budget matters, project implementation, project management, construction management, quality control, safety and timeframe targets.

Very keen on details, Hatem maintains excellent working relations with clients, designers, site managers, contractors or any other parties involved in the projects.

As a successful Entrepreneur Hatem possesses a unique ability to maintain an overview of entire projects while continuing to attend to detailed technicalities.
Hatem likes to be defined as “a Craft Master in engineering”…
