Ghazi Atallah, NXN Co-founder and outgoing CEO commented, “We’re proud that NXN today stands at the forefront of government and city digital transformation in the region, and recognition across numerous global analyst reports. The acquisition of the remaining shares of NXN by Zain provides further validation of the strength of our vision and managed digital services strategy that I aim to repeat internationally.”
