Nutanix announced the appointment of Mohammad Abulhouf to Senior Director & GM, Emerging Markets. Based in Saudi, Abulhouf will focus on developing the company’s regional client base and driving hypergrowth for Nutanix, in light of the wave of digital transformation taking place across the region.
Abulhouf is an IT veteran with over 16 years of experience in the industry, working in various sales leadership roles in reputed companies like Oracle, EMC, HP and Sun Microsystems. He joined Nutanix in 2018 as a Sales Director for Saudi and Bahrain where he was instrumental in building a strong team and spearheading several major customer project wins that helped consolidate Nutanix’s position as a leader in the cloud space. Abulhouf holds a bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering from University of Jordan.
Commenting on the appointment, Sammy Zoghlami, SVP EMEA at Nutanix says, “Emerging markets is a strategic growth region for our company. The ongoing pandemic has created several challenges for organizations that have been forced to transform and modernize their operations and infrastructure in order to stay relevant and competitive. Nutanix technology addresses these challenges by helping enable a remote workforce, accelerate the pace of digitalization programs, reinforce security posture against cyberattacks and provide enterprises with a platform for innovation. Our value proposition has been resonating very strongly, as evidenced by the strong uptake of our technology by regional enterprises.”
“Appointing Abulhouf to lead our Emerging Markets organization is a very natural evolution for him and for Nutanix teams in the region. His track record is significant in terms of business development as well as people development. His leadership philosophy fits perfectly with our vision that we should focus our energy on solving problems for our customers in a multicloud world, not on selling products. Last but not least, his ability to build and develop key partnerships and bring strong solutions to market is key,” he continues.
“I am truly honoured to lead Nutanix’s regional team in the Emerging Markets, at an exciting time when most enterprises have digital transformation initiatives underway. According to the 2022 Enterprise Cloud Index (ECI) report, multicloud is currently the most commonly used deployment model and the report predicts that adoption will jump to 64% in the next three years. However, complexity issues of interoperability, security, cost and data integration remains a major challenge for enterprises. That’s where Nutanix’s value proposition lies. Our platform blurs the line between public, private, and edge clouds to deliver one, invisible multi-cloud experience. From application automation and mobility to cloud governance and native disaster recovery, we give enterprises the foundational IT environment to thrive in a multi-cloud world. I’m looking forward to progressing the great work that’s already happening and excited to advance Nutanix’s business across the region,” concludes Mohammad Abulhouf.
