We have found that our Dubai and UAE base gives us gives access to top IT talent," said Peter Job, Founder and CEO of Intergence.
Intergence also plans to double its staffing levels from 25 staff currently based across the GGC region to 50. These new employees will have a specific focus on the Higher Education, Oil & Gas, and FMCG sectors.
The company has appointed Tamouh Mokayed as business development manager for the region, based at the company's offices in Dubai Internet City.

"Tamouh is a great addition to the Middle East team and brings valuable skills, experience and contacts. We have seen demand in the GCC for our short term Smart Sourcing IT skills services, specialist outsourcing that allows companies to flex up and down with specific IT skills very quickly, grow dramatically in the last 12 months. We now aim to double the number of consultants operating in the GCC over the next 12-18 months, and more than double our annual revenues from this core business activity," said Job.
