Business Logic Systems expands operations in the Middle East and Africa
Mobile telecoms is developing fast in the region and represents an exciting opportunity for Business Logic Systems and its InTeleStage portfolio of products and technologies. In the Middle East, which has more than 40 operators, the market is growing by 12 per cent a year.
"The Middle East is an important growth market for Business Logic Systems," says Nasser. "Our presence will help us support key customers in the region in addition to a number of partners that we are actively working with."
Nasser has extensive experience working in the region during the past 20 years. His new role will involve managing the Business Logic Systems sales activities in the area, with a primary focus on building the list of clients through his relationships with local service providers.
Mostafa has 25 years experience in consulting and information management with Hewlett-Packard and IBM, focused mainly on the telecoms industry.
Having such a strong team in place in the region will enable Business Logic Systems to deliver first class customer service to its customers in the region, including Saudi Telecom Company (STC), according to Stewart Goldberg, the company's Executive Chairman. "We believe it is very important to service local markets with local people," Stewart says.
Nasser Ballout joined Business Logic Systems in April 2008, having spent the past 20 years working in the MEA region. Immediately prior to joining Business Logic Systems he spent two years as co-founder and principal associate of 3-Tier Solutions, a consultancy focused on the design and delivery of information and communications technology solutions. He has had previous roles with Sun Microsystems, Hewlett-Packard, NCR Corporation; and Gulf Computers.
