Cisco has restructured its operations in the region, dividing its Gulf division into three separate entities: North Gulf; South Gulf; and a separate UAE division.

The networking giant has also appointed new regional managers to oversee the territories with Wayne Hull named country manager responsible for the South Gulf region, including Oman and Qatar, and Tarek Ghoul as country manager for the North Gulf, including Kuwait and Bahrain.

Cisco's general manager for the UAE, Mazen Jabri, has also been promoted to general manager of Cisco UAE.

The vendor said the restructuring of its regional activities was designed to improve customer and partner support.

"The creation of the key territories and the appointment of respective country managers reiterates our commitment to our customers and our active participation in the economic development of the region using technology as a prime enabler," stated Samer Alkharrat, general manager at Cisco Gulf.

Hull will oversee Cisco's future expansion in the South Gulf region, including additional offices that the company plans to open in Oman, while Ghoul plans to increase the headcount in Kuwait.

"Cisco's worldwide growth has been phenomenal and the Gulf region has been amongst the top three fastest growing regions for us, globally," said Alkharrat, adding that further increasing its coverage would allow Cisco to reach more customers across the region.
