Before occupying positions in Asia, Cervell handled the business of Ericsson Headquarters (HQ) in Sweden for 13 years, where he worked in the fields of research and development (R&D), project management, and product management.
Cervell said: “Saudi Arabia is at the forefront of technological innovations, fast-growing with a wide range of opportunities and promising ventures on the road to realise KSA Vision 2030.”
He added: “Egypt’s technology sector is setting the stone for a bright future as the country is entering the fourth industrial revolution led by Egypt’s Vision 2030.”
Last July, Ericsson announced Nicolas Blixell as the Vice President and Head of the GCC region, excluding Saudi Arabia as it is a separate market for the tech firm.
