READING, United Kingdom and DUBAI, United Arab Emirates /PRNewswire/ -- Extreme Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXTR), a leader in cloud-driven networking, today announced the appointment of Maan Al-Shakarchi as Regional Director of the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa (META) region. The appointment of Maan signals a step-change in investment and focus for the company in this growing region.
Maan is a seasoned professional in the enterprise networking sector, previously leading the EMEA and APAC Networking Specialist team at Avaya. Maan's mandate at Extreme Networks is to accelerate the company's growth in the META markets, including the Levant countries, by helping customers to accelerate their digital journey through software-driven networking solutions.
Maan Al-Shakarchi comments: "Customers in the META region are among the most forward- thinking in the world. The potential of Extreme Networks in this region is huge. As a global brand, Extreme has an incredible reputation in the market. The company features prominently in analyst reports for its leadership in the enterprise wired and wireless LAN market for innovations in fabric networking, Wi-Fi access solutions, and IoT security, as well as cloud-management. And our recent acquisition of Aerohive only serves to cement Extreme's position as an innovative organisation. But at a local level there is plenty more that we can do to elevate the brand, and to demonstrate the full breadth of the Extreme service portfolio."
