DUBAI, April 3, 2024

Google Cloud has announced the appointment of Head of Security Business Development and Government Relations for the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa region.

Noor Al-Sulaiti, an industry veteran known for her innovative leadership, brings a wealth of experience in the telecommunications and technology sectors to her new role.

Her appointment is yet another testament to the company’s commitment to the region and safeguarding governments’ digital assets.

In this position, Al-Sulaiti will be responsible for Google’s security expansion in the Middle East, Turkey and Africa underscoring the growing importance of cybersecurity for the company.

She will foster strategic partnerships with the public sector to leverage Google Cloud's cutting-edge cybersecurity solutions, including Cybershield, a powerful cybersecurity solution tailored specifically for governments and inspired by the concept that organisations inside a nation and around the world need to “lock shields” and stand united in their defence against shared attackers.

Al-Sulaiti’s distinguished career includes her role as CEO of Ooredoo Oman. There, she established herself as the youngest and first female CEO in the company's history, spearheading a transformation into a digitally led, data-powered, and customer-centric organisation.

Prior to joining Ooredoo Oman, Noor was the CEO of Starlink, a retail chain and IT service provider in Qatar. She was also the general manager of Phono and FASTtelco in Kuwait. She has been recognised as one of the most powerful businesswomen by Forbes Middle East and as a notable business leader by other prominent publications.

Al-Sulaiti said: "I am honoured to join Google Cloud, a company that has inspired me throughout my career. Google Cloud is continuously helping governments around the world enhance their security capabilities and respond holistically at the national level to keep their citizens and critical assets safe, and I'm ready to lead the charge to bring these capabilities to the Middle East, Turkey and Africa.” – TradeArabia News Service
