D2C appoints its first chief executive officer

Muscat: D2C has announced the appointment of Monther Hamed Al Mamari as Chief Executive Officer. D2C is a joint venture between Ooredoo Oman, OHI, and the Ministry of Defence Pension Fund (MODPF) and is a step forward for Oman in bringing this future digital facility to the Sultanate.
In his role, Al Mamari will focus on successfully launching the latest cloud products and colocation services available for public and private businesses.
Considered to be the backbone of company’s information technology (IT) infrastructure, D2C will provide an efficient backup strategy through a cloud solution service.
This allows organisations to build their digital platforms, in a robust scalable infrastructure. D2C consists of a comprehensive cutting-edge portfolio of essential core data services, whose features include co-location hosting; managed and advanced hosting; business continuity and disaster recovery services.
In addition, managed storage, security and LAN infrastructure and software as a service; consulting in systems and network integration. As the future becomes increasingly digital, these innovations will allow businesses to digitalise their operations while reducing cost, complexity, and overcapacity at the same time.
“We are very pleased with the appointment of Monther Al Mamari as Chief Executive Officer of D2C. We believe his strong Ooredoo background combined with his experience will be crucial to running and making sure that the company implements the highest standards of Data Centre services for customers in Oman and the region,” Eihab Maqbool Hameed, deputy chairman for D2C, said.
“The launch of these services is a significant milestone for us but is also part of our strategy to deliver the best customer data centre solutions and cloud services, to help our customers in their journey of digital transformation for their organisations. Our expertise in the digital space means that we recognise the technology which powers the data centre needs to be agile and scalable, to provide platforms and services on which the next generation of digitialisation will be built through D2C’s state-of-the-art infrastructure,” he added.
“We are proud to announce the CEO of Ooredoo’s first subsidiary as Monther Al-Mamari. His appointment reaffirms our passion to increase our cloud and hosting business to the growing demand in Oman. The digital world is changing quickly and companies need to transform and adapt themselves to become more agile and flexible,” Ian Dench, CEO of Ooredoo, said.
“Trying to manage traditional information technology themselves presents challenges when they do not have the support of an expert or high-quality networks. Ooredoo’s strategic move towards cloud and data centre services means that we can remove these difficulties and manage it in a more accommodating and more responsive way through our superior infrastructure. The addition of the data centre service is part in parcel to make Ooredoo an end-to-end services provider,” he added.
As Ooredoo’s former Director of Business Product Management, Al Mamari brings a wealth of in-house experience to the position. After starting in the company’s sales team and rising through the ranks, he enters his new role with over 15 years of experience in telecoms and information and communication technology. His rising career development reiterates Ooredoo’s commitment to building the capabilities of its members and supporting professional growth.
The establishment of D2C is the latest milestone for Ooredoo as it continues to champion Oman’s digital evolution through the provision of world-leading facilities and ground-breaking data-driven services.
