Riyadh, KSA : Huawei, a leading global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices, has announced the appointment of Terry He as CEO for Huawei Tech Investment Saudi Arabia effective immediately. Based in Riyadh, He will be responsible for overseeing all aspects of Huawei’s Saudi operations and for guiding the company’s work as a strategic partner in accelerating digital transformation in the Kingdom.
Previously, He held the position of President of Huawei Middle East Enterprise Business Group where he oversaw the development of the group across the region. In that role, he worked closely with organizations in various industries such as government, oil & gas, education, financial services, healthcare, hospitality, and construction to embrace emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, big data, cloud computing and more.
As a seasoned industry expert in the Middle East, He has more than 10 years of experience working across multiple Huawei offices in the region. This includes being Chief Operation Officer of Huawei in Pakistan and more recently Managing Director of Huawei in Kuwait.
“Terry He brings a wealth of industry knowledge and experience from his time in the region,” said Charles Yang, President of Huawei Middle East. “He has already played a key role in many of Huawei’s regional milestones, and we wish him continued success in his new position in Saudi Arabia as Huawei remains committed to serving its customers and contributing to our digital society.”
He added, “Huawei is growing rapidly in the Middle East and Saudi Arabia specifically, with digital transformation being embraced by all organizations and within the wider Vision 2030. Our goal is to ultimately bring digital to every person, home and organization to support a fully connected and intelligent society. Through open collaboration with our ecosystem partners, we are able to create lasting value for our customers, working to empower people, enrich home life, and inspire innovation in organizations of all shapes and sizes.”
Huawei is already a partner of choice for telecom carriers in Saudi Arabia for 5G network development, supporting the Kingdom in its 5G ambitions through a broad range of end-to-end solutions as the largest maker of telecommunications equipment in the world.

This includes ICT talent development programs, with Huawei launching its own Saudi Talent Enablement Program (STEP) to close the current talent gap while promoting Saudi competitiveness in a digital era.
