REINFORCING INDUSTRY COMMITMENT
Procore strengthens its mission to connect everyone in construction on a global platform through the opening of its regional of ce, a hub for construction technology experts
In line with its mission to connect stakeholders in the construction industry on a single platform to build smarter, Procore Technologies, a leading global provider of construction management software, opened its first Middle East and North Africa (MENA) office, located in Dubai’s Internet City, following a successful launch in the region last year.
According to the company the opening of the new office reflects Procore’s longterm investment and commitment to the MENA region, and signifies the company’s continued growth and global expansion.
The new workplace will be led by Mohamed Swidan, senior director, head of MENA at Procore. Since 2021, Swidan has hired a team of over 20 people, all based locally, with the technical knowledge and resources to meet customers’ needs across sales, marketing, implementation, customer success and more.
“I’m delighted we are opening our first Procore office in MENA. Since our launch last year, we’ve demonstrated our commitment to the region and its construction ambitions,” Swidan said. “The heart of the region’s initiatives are based on pillars such as inclusivity, innovation and sustainability – values we believe in wholeheartedly at Procore.”
He further added: “We plan on playing an integral role in enabling construction professionals, businesses and the region to realise their potential. Now, with a team on the ground empowered to meet local needs with global resources, we have an even greater opportunity to do so.”
Meanwhile, Tooey Courtemanche, founder and CEO, Procore said: “At Procore, we are committed to being a partner to our customers, not just a software provider. Our new office will enable us to deliver on that partnership promise, and speaks volumes about our dedication to the region and our customers there.”
This new regional base will help Procore further deliver on its mission of connecting everyone in construction on a single platform, ultimately enabling owners, general contractors and specialty contractors to build smarter across MENA.
The power of Procore to accelerate collaboration, streamline communication and provide real-time visibility into project performance is vital given construction has become integral to the region’s growth as outlined in the likes of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 and the Dubai 2040 Urban Master Plan.
“WE PLAN ON PLAYING AN INTEGRAL ROLE IN ENABLING CONSTRUCTION PROFESSIONALS, BUSINESSES AND THE REGION TO REALISE THEIR POTENTIAL.”
