HumanSoft, the Kuwait-based IT company, today announced the appointment of Mohammed Kateeb as chief executive officer. Prior to this appointment, the executive management positions of CEO and chairman of the board, were held by Fahad Al Othman. Under the new structure, Al Othman will continue to be the chairman and managing director of the company, while Kateeb serves as CEO.

"Kateeb's appointment is a major step in the process of reengineering the HumanSoft organisation. The creation of two distinct leadership roles demonstrates to our customers, partners, and shareholders that we are moving in the right direction, and that we have the best people in the business guiding and directing our organisation," says Al Othman, managing director of HumanSoft.

The company adds that Kateeb's appointment is an important part of the hiring phase of more 200 managerial and technical staff in 2004.

"HumanSoft is poised for rapid growth and expansion over the next 12 months, which is exciting for me. With its track record of success with major institutional customers like Emirates Airlines, Dubai e-Government, and Kuwait Petroleum Company we have the right platform from which to grow and develop as an organisation," says Mohammed Kateeb, the newly-appointed HumanSoft CEO.

A US B-school graduate, Kateeb has worked with Microsoft for more than ten years for its international operations and most recently as regional director of Microsoft Middle East.
