The Security Business Development and Government Relations of Google Cloud for the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa region (META) will now be headed by Ms Noor Al-Sulaiti.

She will now be responsible for Google’s security expansion in the Middle East, Turkey and Africa underscoring the growing importance of cybersecurity for the company.

Her job is to foster strategic partnerships with the public sector to leverage Google Cloud’s cutting-edge cybersecurity solutions, including CyberSshield, 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.

Ms Al-Sulaiti is an industry veteran known for her innovative leadership. She is expected to bring a wealth of experience in the telecommunications and technology sectors to her new role.

Her distinguished career includes her role as the chief executive of Ooredoo Oman, where 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 organization.

Prior to joining Ooredoo Oman, she 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.

Ms Al-Sulaiti has been recognized as one of the most powerful businesswomen by Forbes Middle East and as a notable business leader by other prominent publications.

Commenting on her appointment, she 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.”
