U.S. Robotics has announced that Yusuf Syed, regional manager of its Middle East operations, has passed away after a courageous yearlong battle against illness. Yusuf is credited with implementing U.S. Robotics Middle East distribution strategy, which has ensured successful annual growth for the vendor and partners alike. Yusuf also played a key role in driving U.S. Robotics successful transition from analogue modems to DSL and wireless networking products. Nabil Sheikh and Hishamul Hasheel will continue to represent U.S. Robotics Middle East from the Dubai office with close support from Peter Blampied, director of sales and operations EMEA. Blampied is already well known to regional channel partners in the region. In a message to partners, Hasheel eloquently summed up Yusuf’s character: “He was a soft-spoken, friendly, good natured person and great teacher for all of us, with a passion for his work and his teammates. His pride in representing USR was always evident and USR’s success in this region is a tribute to his relationship with you all, the trust he inspired, and the pride he carried for our company…No amount of words can offer a fitting tribute to him.”
