Panel Discussion
With 14 years of experience in global telecom networks and subsea cable systems, I'm passionate about leveraging technology to advance the Kingdom's digital landscape. As Senior Advisor at the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT), I support the ministry's vision by drawing on my expertise in network development and strategic partnerships. Previously, I led numerous global subsea cable consortia for 14 years, navigating the complexities of the international telecom landscape. I also served as General Manager of International Cable Systems at center3, overseeing regional connectivity projects and spearheading successful implementation. Throughout my career, I've built a strong track record of delivering results, forging partnerships, and finding solutions in a dynamic industry. Driven by continuous learning, I hold a Bachelor's in Electrical Engineering (King Abdelaziz University), and master’s degree in telecommunication management from Stevens institute of technology. My leadership skills were further honed through Stanford's Graduate School of Business LEAD program, where I mastered innovation, negotiation, and consumer behavior analysis. I believe in the power of positive thinking and collaboration. As a leader, I strive to inspire and empower others to achieve their full potential, contributing to a shared vision of unlimited success.
