Microsoft announces organizational changes in the Middle East
Microsoft Middle East and North Africa recently announced the creation of two new operational entities, Microsoft Gulf and Microsoft East Mediterranean. The new operations are intended to better support the growth of the information technology (IT) industry in the region.
In the new, Microsoft East Mediterranean, headquartered in Cairo, will cover Microsoft's operations in Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, Cyprus and Malta. These countries have been among the fastest growing branches for Microsoft over the past few years.
Founded in 1975, Microsoft is an international manufacturer of software, services and Internet technologies for personal and business computing. Microsoft opened its Dubai-based Middle East headquarters office in 1991, which now oversees operations in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) as well as Yemen and Pakistan, while Microsoft Egypt oversees operations in the East Mediterranean region. — (menareport.com)
