Created in 2007, under the impulsion of its current General Director and Director of Publication, respectively Hassan El Guennouni and brother Amin El Guennouni, Hespress is considered the most popular news website in Morocco.
The site’s popularity is in part due to the fact that it was a precursor of the online Arabic-language press in the country. It is very active on social media and has managed overtime to attract a large span of readers, in part due to a wide editorial line, that covers all tendencies, thanks to an interactive ‘commentary section’ and the participation in the media of external contributors. It has also built its fame on a diversified video content.
It is edited by the limited liability company Marocads, with a capital of 300 000 dollars, whose only shareholders are the above mentioned founders, the El Guennouni brothers.
