Dr Paul Doany has resigned from his role as CEO of Oger Telecom.

Doany joined the Oger Group in 1998 and was nominated general manager of Oger Telecom in 2002, when it was a division of Saudi Oger.

He was appointed CEO of Oger Telecom Ltd, which was incorporated as a separate entity based in Dubai International Financial Center in 2005.

He also served simultaneously as Turk Telekom CEO since its privatisation in 2005, until August 2010, after which he resumed his role as CEO of Oger Telecom. He also served on all subsidiary boards of the group.

Doany said that following his resignation, he intends to focus on "diversified investments" in internet and IT companies, including social networking, e-commerce and the financial sector.

He also plans to expand into renewable energy, focusing on geothermal power generation.

"This was a 12 year journey with Oger that I will cherish forever. I am confident that the team we have built will take Oger Telecom forward in the years to come," Doany said.

Speaking on behalf of the board of directors, Mohammed Hariri, chairman of Oger Telecom, said: "During Dr Doany's tenure with Oger Telecom, we achieved remarkable milestones. He led our subsidiaries, from acquisition, operational build out, to successful transformation, as needed for the various stages of their development, handing over to other CEOs at the opportune time.

Oger Telecom, which is headquartered in Dubai International Financial Center, UAE, operates in Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Jordan, South Africa and Turkey.
