Veeam Software has announced the appointment of Mohamad Rizk as Regional Director for the Middle East and CIS region.
In this new role, which plays to his strengths as a leader with a strong business acumen, Rizk will support Veeam’s continued investment and strong presence in the region and will look to grow the company’s market share and revenues through the planning and execution of sales and channel strategies.
Rizk has had an illustrious career helping regional enterprises with their digital transformation journeys through the rollout of technologies, primarily relating to virtualisation, storage and data management and protection.
He joined Veeam as a Presales Consultant in 2013, based in Saudi Arabia, and moved up to his last role of Senior Director, Technical Sales – Middle East, Russia & CIS where he was instrumental in the planning and execution of several large scale projects that helped drive Veeam’s reputation as a leader in the modern data protection domain.
Rizk commented: “During the last couple of years, digital transformation initiatives have accelerated in response to the need to support a hybrid workplace. Cloud, virtualisation, Kubernetes and SaaS have seen rapidly growing adoption by enterprises who seek to bring flexibility, scalability, simplicity and cost benefits into their IT infrastructures by moving away from legacy data centre architectures.
“Against this backdrop, I am delighted to be taking on this new role and continuing my journey with Veeam at an exciting time when the company is leading innovation in the area of Modern Data Protection across all environments.
“Our company’s value proposition is simple – by guaranteeing the availability and security of data, businesses have greater control and can make better business decisions to fulfil Digital Transformation initiatives. I look forward to leading Veeam’s next phase of growth in the region.”
