Omar consistently demonstrated success in driving market expansions while building out capabilities to sustain business growth and advance market leadership.
“I’m excited to join Curvature and leverage my experience to make an immediate impact in leading the company forward and delivering world-class IT support and services to our clients around the world,” said Omar. “Organizations around the globe increasingly demand greater flexibility and more affordable options for IT services and support. Not only can Curvature provide the end-to-end IT support services they need, our established global footprint ensures consistency and service delivery excellence.”
