Intel is changing its regional structure for its Middle East operations, a move the company said reflects the growth and development of its business in the region. The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) operation has been expanded to cover Turkey and the African continent.

The key regional offices will be in Dubai, Istanbul, Riyadh, Cairo and Johannesburg. Gilbert Lacroix will take the title of president, instead of country manager as previously, for MENA, and will share management with Rod O’Shea, regional director for the Middle East Turkey and Africa.

O’Shea has overall responsibility for developing Intel’s business in the new region, and for ensuring that the company has “a detailed understanding of the various markets that constitute the new region”, the company said in a statement. O’Shea was previously EMEA enterprise business manager, looking after the company’s corporate accounts in the region.

“The Middle East, Turkey and Africa have been recording outstanding growth for Intel in the past few years,” said Dave King, regional director of Intel Europe, the Middle East and Africa. “We believe that this region has significant potential for growth, and as such focus on it is higher than ever before.”
