Management Changes at Zain Group

The Zain Group, the Middle East's leading mobile network provider, announced today that the management of its Iraq operation, Zain Iraq, will henceforth fall under the direct supervision of the Group's Chief Executive, Mr Nabeel Bin Salamah. The former Zain Iraq CEO, Mr Ali Al Dahwi, has been appointed special advisor on Iraq for the Zain Group.

The Zain Group explained that the move was made on the basis of the company's long term development in Iraq and will not necessarily mean a change in the strategic direction set out by Mr Al Dahwi, whose energy and hard work have established Zain as a highly visible brand in the Iraqi market with a customer base of 11 million, the highest among the Group's Middle East operations.

Mr Barrak Al Sabeeh will represent Mr Bin Salamah in an on-the-ground capacity, while Mr Wael Ghanayem, the newly-appointed Zain Iraq CFO will take on the additional role of acting CEO until such time that a new CEO is officially appointed.
