Microsoft Gulf has announced two changes in its leadership team for the Gulf region with the appointment of Naim Yazbeck as the new Microsoft country manager for Qatar and Mohammad Hammoudi as the new public sector director for the Gulf region.
Yazbeck will take over as country manager in Qatar after a successful three year stint as public sector director for Microsoft Gulf where he achieved double digit growth every year during his tenure.
In his new role, he will be responsible for leading the company’s efforts in Qatar to work with customers and partners to support the eco-system that already promotes development of a dynamic ICT market in Qatar.
As public sector lead for Gulf, Hammoudi will be focused on engaging with governments, education and health policymakers to support them to leverage information technology to improve citizen services and realise the national vision for each of the countries in the Gulf region.
Hammoudi takes over his new position after an eight-year tenure as country manager in Qatar where he was responsible for starting and building up the Microsoft business and partner eco-system in Qatar.
“I see great potential in the Qatar ICT market in terms of both the opportunities to Microsoft but also to support the aspirations of Qatar to lead through technology innovation and adoption,” said Naim Yazbeck.
Hammoudi said: “I look forward to my new role as the public sector director for the Gulf region where I see a great opportunity to leverage my local, regional and global experience in partnership with government institutions to support public sector organisations across the region who are increasingly looking for innovative and transformative ways to serve their constituents and spur economic growth and opportunity.”
