Components giant Intel has set up shop in Beirut to move closer to its Lebanese and Jordanian channel partners. The office will house a channel team and will also act as a base for Intel’s regional independent software vendor (ISV) support team.
“We are delighted to officially inaugurate our operations in Lebanon,” said Karim Fahmy, Intel’s general manager for Egypt and the Levant. “We believe Lebanon is a key market in this region, and our presence on the ground will help us to build on our existing relationships and develop new ones to support our expansion in this region”
Intel has 300 channel partners in Lebanon and Jordan and has been ramping up its on-the-ground activity through events in Beirut and Amman. According to Intel, a physical presence in the Levant region will provide enhanced training and support to its partner base. Intel’s Levant operation, headed up by Alexander Loucas, will report to Intel’s Cairo office.
Intel’s ISV support team will work with software vendors across the Middle East and North Africa region and assist them in developing applications to work on Intel’s various hardware platforms. The office, inaugurated this month, is now fully functional.
