Dimension Data announces its executive team to lead the Middle East and African Region
Johannesburg, 10 July 2019 – Dimension Data is pleased to announce its newly appointed executive leadership team, as it reorganises for growth.
On 1 July, Dimension Data’s parent NTT Group announced the formation of NTT Ltd as a global group, while Dimension Data and its subsidiaries will represent the NTT brand within the Middle East and Africa.
The new executive team has been structured to execute on the company’s strategic agenda to enable growth and scalability, while retaining their focus as a leading systems integrator and managed services provider to the region.
Grant Bodley, Dimension Data MEA Chief Executive Officer states, "The recent NTT Ltd announcement presented an opportune time to introspect and ensure we are set up to best respond to the demands of the market and our clients. We are incredibly excited at the opportunity that lies ahead of us.
With this announcement, I am also extremely pleased to advise that our founder Jeremy Ord remains in his role as Executive Chairman of this business and Moss Ngoasheng, previously non-executive chairman of Dimension Data South Africa, is now deputy independent, non-executive chairman."
Dimension Data remains committed to the development of the region by protecting it from the growing cybersecurity threats and attacks on all businesses. As such, the company will be investing to grow their existing capability, and combining all current security assets, to achieve growth, scale and focus.
