A spokesperson for Al-Futtaim confirmed to IT Weekly sister publication Channel Middle East last week that Khalil is set to be unveiled as the general manager of Al-Futtaim Technologies’ international operation, part of the group’s Electronics and Engineering Business Division.

In addition to notebooks, projectors and office products from Toshiba, Al-Futtaim Technologies — better known in the market as Aftech — delivers Alcatel-branded communications solutions and is a certified Microsoft Dynamics partner.

Aftech also provides extensive infrastructure services to other companies within the Al-Futtaim Group.

The scope of Khalil’s role has not yet been disclosed, although it is understood to include a responsibility for developing the company’s business in Africa.

Khalil left Toshiba towards the end of 2006 following a seven-year stretch working for the notebook vendor.
