CAIRO : Intel Egypt today announced a change in its leadership structure, appointing Eng. Sameh Elmallah as the new Managing Director for Intel Egypt & the Levant region. Eng. Karim El Fateh has decided to leave Intel to pursue other career opportunities outside of Intel.
Eng. Sameh Elmallah has been working for Intel for over seven years. Prior to his appointment as Managing Director for Intel Egypt & Levant region, he was the Business Development Manager and Commercial Business Lead at Egypt and the Levant region, working closely with government officials as well as non-government organizations, education content providers, global & local industry, and educators. He also assumed responsibilities like the World Ahead program lead for the Middle East region, in which he drove multiple programs to reach the ‘next’ billion of users by using broadband Internet connectivity, affordable state-of-the-art computer technology, collaborative rich-media content, and interactive 1:1 education environments. Sameh successfully launched initiatives across the Egypt & Levant region in both the public and private sectors, in addition to key education transformation programs in several countries in the region to increase ICT adoption in education and help children develop essential 21st century skills that will help them thrive in today’s global economy.
Before joining Intel in 2008, Elmallah held multiple positions in the field of ICT, including the country manager for Raya Algeria, the general manager of Raya Networks Services, and Director of Services Organization at Siemens Egypt, where he was implementing nationwide fixed telecommunications networks. Elmallah was born in Cairo, Egypt in 1966. He received his bachelor’s degree in electrical and computer engineering from Ain Shams University and holds an MBA degree in finance and International Business from the Arab maritime academy of management.
Intel continues to invest and pursue operations in Egypt through multiple programs including the Intel Innovation Initiative (Inara), through which it has empowered over two million people in the Arab world by ensuring young minds have direct access to essential technologies as well as skills that turn ideas into solutions and illuminate their pathway towards success. By collaborating with governments, educators, NGOs, and industry leaders, Intel is gradually transforming education, enhancing research initiatives, and subsequently enabling countries to boost their economy.
