Kuwait Times - - TECHNOLOGY -

Cisco Mid­dle East has an­nounced the ap­point­ment of Ziad Salameh as Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of its West Re­gion. In his new po­si­tion, Ziad is re­spon­si­ble for lead­ing Cisco’s busi­ness and op­er­a­tions in Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, the Le­vant and Iraq to cap­i­tal­ize on the op­por­tu­ni­ties cre­ated by dig­i­ti­za­tion.

New role will fo­cus on lead­ing the way in dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion across mul­ti­ple mar­kets and driv­ing busi­ness out­comes for cus­tomers and in­dus­tries.

A Cisco vet­eran in the re­gion, Ziad will ex­tend ef­forts to se­cure en­gage­ments across var­i­ous in­dus­try sec­tors, while work­ing closely with chan­nel part­ners to pro­vide Cisco’s cus­tomer cen­tric so­lu­tions to the pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tors.

Pos­sess­ing over 24 years of di­ver­si­fied in­dus­try ex­pe­ri­ence and a wealth of in­dus­try knowl­edge, Ziad has an im­pres­sive track record of suc­cess in peo­ple devel­op­ment, in­no­va­tion and busi­ness trans­for­ma­tion. Since his ap­point­ment into Cisco in 2009, he has lever­aged his suc­cess in lead­ing the Ser­vices busi­ness in Saudi Ara­bia to later drive op­er­a­tional ef­fi­cien­cies and in­no­va­tion for Cisco Mid­dle East’s Ser­vices and achieve ex­cep­tional growth across mul­ti­ple mar­kets.

“At Cisco, 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 Ziad to lead our West Re­gion re­flects our am­bi­tions and strate­gic di­rec­tion in these mar­kets,” said Mike We­ston, Vice Pres­i­dent for Cisco Mid­dle East. “As a sea­soned leader and tech­nol­ogy ex­ec­u­tive, Ziad’s proven abil­ity to de­liver cus­tomer suc­cess and depth of ex­per­tise in work­ing closely with gov­ern­ments and en­ter­prises will ac­cel­er­ate the mo­men­tum on dig­i­ti­za­tion in the re­gion.”

Lead­ing an ex­pe­ri­enced team in the West re­gion, Ziad will de­velop stronger part­ner as­so­ci­a­tions with strate­gic ini­tia­tives for skill set devel­op­ment and build on Cisco’s pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tor en­gage­ments to at­tain Cisco’s strate­gic goals and el­e­vate busi­ness per­for­mance.

“It is a truly ex­cit­ing time to be a part of Cisco’s vi­sion where dig­i­ti­za­tion is mak­ing dra­matic changes in the way or­ga­ni­za­tions ap­proach their busi­ness op­er­a­tions. I am hon­oured to lead the way into new dig­i­tal busi­ness trans­for­ma­tion ini­tia­tives with Cisco’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,” said Ziad Salameh, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor - West Re­gion, Cisco Mid­dle East.

Ziad’s past di­ver­si­fied ex­pe­ri­ence in the ICT do­main in­cludes sev­eral key sales and lead­er­ship po­si­tions at tech­nol­ogy com­pa­nies that in­clude Hewlett Packard and Com­paq, and has led Cor­po­rate Bank­ing Op­er­a­tions at Stan­dard Char­tered Bank.
