Sun Microsystems MENA appoints Yasser Wardany to manage Levant, Egypt and North Africa region

The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) operations of Sun Microsystems, Inc. announced the appointment of Yasser Wardany as its District Sales Manager for the Levant, Egypt and North Africa markets.

In this role, Wardany will further develop Sun’s growth strategy for delivering to regional customers the solutions that support their business more efficiently, while reducing energy consumption, space, and operating cost of their IT systems.

Wardany brings to Sun and its regional customers and partner community more than 16 years of experience in the information technology industry.

His background includes 10 years of hands-on management experience across the Middle East markets, having most recently acted as the Director of Sales for Sun partner STME, a leading systems integrator in the Middle East, where he doubled STME’s business in the past few years.

After working on-site with customers in key markets such as Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Egypt and with a firsthand understanding of the business issues and opportunities facing Sun’s channel partners, Wardany is ideally placed to meet the needs of Sun clients and partners from Jordan and Lebanon to Egypt and the developing Maghreb markets of Morocco, Tunisia, and Libya.

“Yasser brings to Sun an innate knowledge of the key industries in which our customers operate, as well as the challenge that most businesses in the region are facing – the need to do more with existing IT systems while reducing operational costs and addressing energy and space constraints,”

said Chris Cornelius, Managing Director of Sun Microsystems MENA.

“With a background that includes both customer service expertise and business development in both established and developing territories Yasser is set to help both Sun users and our business partners achieve their business objectives through deployment of business-oriented information infrastructure solutions, as well as services,” he added.

The LEENA region is one of Sun’s fastest-developing growth markets in the wider Middle East, in part due to privatization and intense competition in industries such as financial services and telecoms.

Recently the company announced that it will launch two new systems based on the UltraSPARC(R) T2 Plus processor across the Levant, Egypt and North Africa regions.
