Cisco Middle East has appointed Ziad Salameh as the managing director of its West Region.

In his new position, Salameh will be responsible for leading Cisco’s business and operations in Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, the Levant and Iraq to capitalise on the opportunities created by digitisation, said a statement from the company.

Mike Weston, vice president for Cisco Middle East, said: “At our company, we are playing a leading role in helping countries, industries and businesses develop and implement digital roadmaps and transformations that deliver tangible outcomes.”

“This is a time of great change and growing opportunities and the appointment of Salameh to lead our West Region reflects our ambitions and strategic direction in these markets,” he said.

“As a seasoned leader and technology executive, his proven ability to deliver customer success and depth of expertise in working closely with governments and enterprises will accelerate the momentum on digitisation in the region,” Weston added.

On his appointment, Salameh said: “It is a truly exciting time to be a part of the company’s vision where digitisation is making dramatic changes in the way organisations approach their business operations.”

“I am honoured to lead the way into new digital business transformation initiatives with the company’s leading solutions portfolio to help our customers and partners reap the benefits of a digital ecosystem that delivers tangible and sustainable growth, and which helps them become more competitive,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
