Welcome to ITP.net's Technology Leaders 2017 guide, where we bring together important and influential individuals working in IT within the Middle East.

The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) telecommunications sector is experiencing phenomenal growth, with infrastructure contracts in the Middle East alone worth some US$10 billion over the past five years.

These advances in technology are being matched by developments in the business sector, with deregulation and privatisation impacting the region's communications industries.

We aim to recognise and celebrate the diversity within the telecommunications sector and have put together a micro-site of individuals that have stood out this year.

The guide is not ranked in any specific order, instead the profiles are listed alphabetically and offers insight into each individual, their role and contribution to the Middle East.
