Storage solutions provider and integrator STME has opened a new corporate office in Egypt, building on its eight years of experience working in the Egyptian market. STME has a network of 15 offices spanning 11 countries across the region. Jocelyn Al Adwani, deputy CEO at STME, said: “As one of the largest economies in the Arab world, Egypt has been integral to STME’s strategic vision for the region and has traditionally contributed a fair percentage of STME’s business volume and revenue. Egypt’s IT boom has lately been driving up demand for storage solutions, which encouraged us to have a more direct presence in the country by setting up a full-fledged corporate office. The new office will allow us to serve our customers in and around Egypt more resourcefully and proximately.” STME announced its increased commitment to the Egyptian market at the information technology petroleum conference and exhibition, which opened on 4th September in Cairo. The event focuses on the latest technology solutions used by the petroleum industry in areas such as exploration, drilling, development, production, gas processing and marketing. “We believe the information technology petroleum conference and exhibition is the perfect platform to announce the launch of our new office in Egypt. The event comes at a most opportune time, given the technology-driven modernisation taking place across the many sub-sectors within the petroleum industry, which has been boosting demand for IT systems including storage solutions. STME is pleased to extend support to this high-profile conference, together with our partners Symantec and NetApp,” Al Adwani added. STME has also announced the appointment of Mohammed Aboualam as its regional manager for Egypt and Levant. Commenting on the appointment, Yasser Wardany, sales director at STME, said: “This organisational restructuring serves to further our strategic objectives for the region. Mohammed is a well-known industry figure with considerable experience, and his dynamics and market knowledge will lend a strategic edge to our operations.”
