Zain KSA has appointed Hassan Kabbani as CEO with immediate effect.

Industry veteran Kabbani replaces Fraser Curley, who has left the position after 18 months for personal reasons.

Kabbani has held previous roles as CEO in the Middle East and North Africa regions, including at Algeria’s Djezzy from 2003 to 2008, and Egypt’s Mobinil from 2008 to 2011.

Originally from Lebanon, Kabbani is a native Arabic speaker and was also board member and advisor to Dubai’s Oger Telecom.

Kabbani has been recruited to help Zain Saudi compete more aggressively with rivals Saudi Telecom Company (STC) and Etihad Etisalat (Mobily).
