Before joining STC, Al-Alshaikh worked as the head of enterprise at Apple in Saudi Arabia. She has also worked at brands including Cisco and Hewlett-Packard. During her career she has held multiple leadership and advisory positions, and is considered one of Saudi Arabia's foremost experts in enterprise business.
