Based in Riyadh, Almadi will be responsible for leading the company’s strategy across the kingdom, growing the team in Saudi Arabia, and supporting the growth and scaling of customers across a variety of industries spanning retail, healthcare, financial services, entertainment and several others.

Almadi will also focus on scaling Google Cloud’s partnership ecosystem in the kingdom.

With 16 years of information technology and tech sales leadership and expertise, he joins from Dell Technologies, where he was country enterprise director for telecom, cloud and financial services’ industries.

Almadi began his career in 2006 with Cisco as the service account manager and then moved to Oracle in 2009, where he focused on client management in the financial services industry.

In 2017, Bader worked with the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (MCIT) of Saudi Arabia as an advisor to The Minister on international partnerships. He also led several partnership initiatives that strengthened the kingdom’s presence in the international arena with technology corporations, non government organisations (NGOs), and not for profit organisations (NPOs).

“It is with great pleasure that we welcome Bader to the team as we continue to expand Google Cloud’s presence in the Middle East. Saudi Arabia is one of our key markets in the Middle East and we are committed to supporting our Saudi customers on their digital transformation journey with Google Cloud’s innovative solutions. Bader, who brings a wealth of expertise to the team, will be spearheading the next phase of growth and expansion into the Saudi market,” said AbdulRahman Al Thehaiban, managing director, Middle East, Turkey and Africa at Google Cloud.
