Al Hanandeh chosen as Zain Jordan CEO Al Jaber ends 2-yr tenure

Zain Group, the leading mobile telecommunications operator in the Middle East, is pleased to announce the appointment of Ahmad Al Hanandeh as CEO of Zain Jordan, effective July 1, 2011. The appointment follows the departure of Dr Abdul Malek Al Jaber who ended his two-year contract as CEO of Zain Jordan and has decided to dedicate his immediate future to his family while pursuing personal business interests. Dr Al Jaber also relinquishes his role as Zain Group Chief Operations Officer.
Al Hanandeh, a Jordanian national, comes to Zain Jordan with an impressive professional track record, having joined as Chief Financial Officer of the successful Zain Sudan mobile operation in March 2011.

Before that, he was for four years the General Manager of Posta Plus, the Gulf-based company specializing in world-class delivery, courier and postal services across the Middle East. From 1994 to 2006, he was a key member of the Aramex Group initially joining as an accountant and rising to country manager of several of Aramex’s Asian operations.
Welcoming the new CEO of Zain Jordan to the role, Nabeel Bin Salamah, CEO of Zain Group said, “Ahmad Al Hanandeh brings to his new job the skill sets, energy and experience needed in one of Zain’s most dynamic operations. Equally important is that fact that his recent background is heavily grounded in meeting customer expectations, one of the main pillars of our core business and we are confident that he has the tools to build upon the distinguished achievements of Dr Al Jaber in further cementing Zain’s position as the leading telecommunications operator in Jordan”.

For his part, Al Hanandeh said: “It is a great honor to join such a talented team, one that has an exceptional track record and earned a reputation for hard-work, dedication and innovation in putting Jordan on the global telecom map. I look forward to working closely with them on the roadmap of success and remarkable achievements set by Dr Al Jaber. I would also like to thank the Zain Group and its senior management for the opportunity to contribute to the economic and social development of my country by leading one of Jordan’s most dynamic and recognizable brands.”
Al Hanandeh is confident that the company would maintain its current momentum of leadership in the Kingdom. “Zain Jordan will continue to place a premium on providing an unparalleled service to its loyal customers and building solid ties within the local community.”
He added that he is looking forward to working in partnership with the Telecom Regulation Commission and the Ministry of Telecommunications and ICT, as well as all the other relevant parties in the sector to help achieve the vision of His Majesty King Abdullah Bin Al Hussein in making Jordan an oasis of technology and innovation in the region.
Al Hanandeh is married with three children. He graduated in Banking and Finance from Yarmouk University, Jordan in 1994.
