As a commitment to its clients – such as Emirates – in the Middle East, CellPoint Mobile has opened a new Dubai office and hired Noel Connolly to serve as the company's VP sales in the Middle East and Africa.
Connolly comes to CellPoint Mobile from after five years at Sabre, where he acted as airline sales director for Sabre Travel Networks and a partner in Sabre's airline solutions division. Before that, he spent four years as a sales and IT account manager at Dubai-based Dnata-Mercator.
“We are excited to have someone of Noel's calibre and experience join our company and support our Middle East and African operations,” commented CellPoint Mobile’s CEO, Kristian Gjerding. “Noel's expertise with airline distribution, enterprise-level solutions and the MEA market is a valuable asset for both our company and our clients as they adopt and deploy mobile commerce and payment solutions."
“We want to be close to our customers so we can support them locally,” Gjerding continued. “Noel is the first of several new team members in this region, and we will add solution specialists and delivery capabilities to ensure that our clients experience CellPoint Mobile's trademark high level of service and fast time to market for solutions.”
