Hosting and services provider eHosting DataFort (eHDF) has announced the appointment of Yasser Zeineldin as new CEO for the Dubai-based company.

Zeineldin moves from TECOM’s Executive Director of Business Development, to take on the role, where he will be responsible for expanding the company’s business.

Abdullatif Almulla, Group Chief Executive Officer of TECOM investments, said: “eHosting Datafort has earned a credible reputation for itself as an outstanding enterprise service provider for the region’s IT industry. We are confident Yasser will successfully take the company to the next level with his vision, expertise and drive that is perfectly aligned with our ambitious objectives for eHosting DataFort.”

Zeineldin previously held a number of roles with Microsoft, including regional director, and has also worked for NCR and AT&T.

“More and more customers are adopting managed services and are gradually moving towards Software as a Service. We are seeing that cloud computing will cross over from the early adoption stage to mainstream computing in the coming few years. I am very excited about the opportunity this represents for EHDF. We are a regional leader in hosting and managed services, as well as offer a wider range of IT outsourcing, security and consulting services and we intend to extend that leadership to capitalize on the opportunities represented by the industry transformation we are witnessing,” Zeineldin said.

Mohamed Fouz, CEO of eHosting Datafort for the past two years, is stepping down to further his own business interests.
