01 September 2016 | Alan Burkitt-Gray


Gulf-based carrier-neutral operator GBI has hired two new vice presidents of sales, one to be based in Dubai and the other in the Netherlands.

The appointments follow GBI’s recruitment last month of former BICS executive Mohamed Abdel Bassit as VP of operations.

The two VPs of sales are Whitney Myrus, who will be based in Dubai, and Joris te Lintelo, who will be in the Netherlands.

Amr Eid, acting CEO and CCO of GBI, said: “We are pleased to welcome Whitney and Joris to our sales team. Their appointments will further enhance our market footprint and will contribute to GBI’s success in line with our next phase of growth.”

Myrus is a former sales manager for Verizon Business, where he handled defence and international solutions for the company. Te Lintelo spent eight years with Global Cloud Xchange – formerly Reliance Globalcom – and before that was director of sales for Tele2 Carrier Services.
