Help AG appoints Fahad Al-Suhaimi to spearhead its expansion in KSA

Help AG, the cyber security arm of Etisalat Digital, has appointed Fahad Al-Suhaimi as Country Director to spearhead the company’s plans for expansion in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA).

Al-Suhaimi brings with him more than 15 years of experience in successfully driving business expansion in the technology industry across a variety of roles in project management, business development, sales, and marketing strategy. He joins Help AG from Innovative Solutions SA, where he held the role of Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Prior to that, he served in management positions at Mobily, SAS, HP, the Saudi Telecom Company, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Based in Riyadh, Al-Suhaimi will be responsible for leading business growth and expansion across the nation at a time when organizations are looking to further accelerate their digital transformation ambitions driven, in part, by the global COVID-19 outbreak but also as one of the focal points of Saudi’s Vision 2030 plan to diversify its economy through increased focus on innovation.

Commenting on the appointment, Stephan Berner, Chief Executive Officer at Help AG, said “We are very excited to have Fahad leading our expansion into Saudi Arabia to meet the significantly increasing demand for Help AG’s Managed Security Services and cyber security on-premises and secure cloud infrastructure projects. It is clear that organizations and governmental agencies across the Kingdom are most eager and ready to embrace digital transformation – and as one of the region’s strongest cyber security companies, we look forward to supporting their bold steps with our tailored information security solutions and services that ensure they grow securely.”

Commenting on his new role, Fahad Al-Suhaimi, newly appointed Country Director in Saudi Arabia, Help AG, added: “I am honoured to join Help AG and look forward to expanding the reach of our cutting-edge 360° capabilities to empower the infrastructure of organizations in the Kingdom and enable secure transformation that will help drive the digital economy. As the Gulf’s largest economy, there is huge demand in the market for our services and solutions as organizations rapidly embrace digital technologies not only accelerated by the shift to cloud and multi-cloud environments during Covid-19, but also on account of Saudi’s national transformation plan that prioritizes innovation to diversify the economy away from oil and develop public service sectors including infrastructure, health, education, and tourism. Part of Etisalat Digital, Help AG already leads the largest team of cyber security experts in the region with a 160+ strong workforce, making us best positioned to serve the market.”
