Doha, Qatar

The recent appointment of Mansoor Rashid Al-Khater as CEO of Ooredoo Tunisia brings the number of Qatari CEOs heading Ooredoo Group’s operating companies to three, underscoring the contribution of Qatari business leaders to both Group success and to economies in the countries in which the Group operates.

Mr. Al-Khater recently took over as CEO at Ooredoo Tunisia, while Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdullah bin Mohammed Al Thani is currently CEO at Ooredoo Kuwait and Ahmad Abulaziz Al Neama was appointed CEO at Indosat Ooredoo in May 2019.

All three gentlemen gained valuable experience at Ooredoo Qatar before moving further afield to continue their careers abroad.

Mr. Al-Khater joined Ooredoo in 2009, holding several senior roles at Ooredoo Group and Ooredoo Qatar – including Strategy Officer – before his most recent role as Group Chief Strategy Officer. He also serves on the Board of Asiacell Iraq.

Sheikh Mohammed’s career in Qatar included a stint as Director of Financial Operations, followed by promotion to Senior Director, Budget and Decision Support and Deputy Chief Officer, Finance. He is also currently Chairman of Ooredoo Algeria.

Mr. Al Neama, prior to his appointment as CEO, Indosat Ooredoo, was most recently Group Chief Technology Officer, having previously been Chief Sales and Services Officer and Director of Demand and Project Management at Ooredoo Qatar. He continues his responsibilities on the Board of Directors for both Indosat Ooredoo and Ooredoo Oman.

Sheikh Saud Bin Nasser Al Thani, Chief Executive Officer at Ooredoo Group, said of the latest appointment and the growing number of Qatari CEOs across the OpCos: “We’re delighted to see more and more Qatari citizens taking up leadership roles across our network of operating companies. We know we have an incredible talent pool amongst our Qatari employees, and we offer amazing opportunities for them to gain valuable experience with Ooredoo Qatar and Ooredoo Group that they can then leverage as their careers advance. We’re incredibly proud of our Qatari citizens leading our OpCos and we look forward to seeing many more taking the helm in the near future.”
