Vodafone Qatar has appointed Sheikh Hamad bin Abdullah al-Thani as new chief executive officer and Rashid al-Naimi as managing director.
Al-Naimi, who is the chief executive of Qatar Foundation (QF) Endowment and responsible for QF’s investment portfolios, has been elected as managing director with immediate effect.
Sheikh Hamad will replace Ian Gray who has decided to retire and step down following the company’s annual general assembly, scheduled to be held on March 19, 2017.
Sheikh Hamad, who holds a BA in Computer Science from the University of Ottawa in Canada, currently holds the role of Vodafone Qatar’s chief operating officer.
Since joining Vodafone Qatar in 2013, he has served in several roles including senior business development manager, head of public sector sales and sales director.
Under his leadership, Vodafone Qatar’s enterprise market share grew substantially as did the company’s position as an ICT (information communication and technology) and mega projects service provider. Before joining Vodafone Qatar, he held multiple ICT-related roles in the oil and gas sector.
"We are at the beginning of a journey that will bring us closer to providing a converged digital ecosystem with smart solutions. I am certain that Vodafone Qatar will play a crucial role in driving the digital transformation in support of the Qatar National Vision 2030," Sheikh Hamad said.
