LinkedIn has appointed Nimbuzz’s Ziad Rahhal as head of marketing solutions for the MENA tegion. Rahhal replaces Jake Thomas, who left LinkedIn for Snapchat earlier this year.
Rahhal joins from Nimbuzz where he was the managing director for MENA working across the UAE, KSA, Kuwait, Jordan, Qatar, Bahrain and Lebanon.
Commenting on his appointment, Rahal says in a statement, “With the recent announcement of the 500 million milestone globally, it really couldn’t be a better time to join LinkedIn and I am excited to be part of the team. The recently launched features make it even easier for brands to build their presence, reach the right audiences, and then measure programs to optimize their impact. In the complex world of B2B buying, we are looking to help brands not only engage with professionals, but drive, and convert leads. It’s exciting to join a platform leading in this field.”
