US telecom giant AT&T has opened a new office in Dubai as part of a move to tap growth potential in the Middle East and Africa.

The new office, which is in Dubai Internet City, has been fully operational September, and will support the company’s business across the MEA region, according to John Wimpole, director of sales, Middle East and Africa, and GM in the UAE.

Wimpole added that in the last full financial year, 2010-2011, AT&T saw 13% growth in sales from its global enterprise customers in the EMEA region.

“AT&T’s modernised facility in Dubai Internet City is testament to AT&T’s commitment to the Middle East and Africa,” Wimpole said. “Working closely with our colleagues in the wider EMEA territory, we bring a wealth of expertise and resources to our regional customer base.

“AT&T enterprise, wholesale, customer care and global access management organisations are now directly represented in the region with resources based in Dubai,” he added.
