Sun Microsystems has named Hani Salman as country manager of its Saudi Arabian operation. Salman will spearhead Sun’s aggressive expansion plans in the Kingdom in key verticals including banking, telecoms and government.

Chris Cornelius, managing director at Sun Middle East and North Africa (MENA), said: “Saudi has been a key market for Sun, with a major part of our revenues for the region generated from this market. With the recent spurt of investments and growth in the Saudi economy, companies are looking to technology to ensure that they are delivering quality service to their customers, as competition becomes more of a reality.”

“This is a great opportunity for us to show customers how our products and services are relevant to their business, whether they are an enterprise or SMBs, including demonstrating Sun’s Academic Initiative (SAI) to many of the universities in the Kingdom,” he added.

Prior to his promotion, Salman was the financial sector manager at Sun MENA, managing a portfolio of leading clients including Mobily, Sabic and Saudi Post. A Jordanian national, Salman holds a degree in electronics and communications from Al Mansurah University, Cairo. Salman lives in Riyadh with his wife and three children.

“Salman has worked closely with the Sun team in his previous job and has always exhibited a positive, go-getter team spirit. In his most recent role at Sun, Salman demonstrated his forte in the financial sector, with an exemplary track record in developing new businesses and strengthening relationship with Sun’s customers and vendors. He has all the qualities required to be a successful manager and we are sure Sun’s Saudi operation is in capable hands,” concluded Cornelius.
