Joseph Hanania is preparing to leave his current position as managing director of HP Middle East’s 700-strong operation. HP has been aware of Hanania’s decision to step down for a number of months allowing the company to formulate a smooth succession strategy. Hanania’s decision to step down was confirmed to www.itp.net by a senior executive within HP Middle East earlier today. The HP executive also revealed that it is an amicable separation and one that both parties have been aware of for a significant amount of time. Hanania looks set to remain involved in the Middle East ICT sector once he has left HP, but he is not expected to join any of HP’s rivals. The exact timeline for Hanania’s departure has not yet been confirmed. Hanania joined HP following its acquisition of Compaq, where he had been managing director for the Middle East since 1995. Before this he worked as director of channel partner operations for Compaq North America, based in Houston, Texas. Before his time at Compaq, Hanania spent seven years at US Videotel, a joint venture between American telecoms giants AT&T, South Western Bell and Bell South. Prior to this Hanania worked as a technology consultant with Andersen Consulting for four years, also in the US. Hanania holds degrees in computer science and industrial engineering, as well as an MBA in finance and marketing. Updates to follow.
