Starlink, an Infinigate Group company, today is underscoring its commitment to delivering a consistent 20% YoY growth for the coming years. This target was confirmed at the annual Sales Kick-Off under the theme VAD of the Future, held at the iconic Museum of the Future in Dubai on 20th January, revealing a strategic plan for the years ahead and celebrating the achievements of the financial year 2022, with solid growth of 20% YoY. This double-digit increase is the result of a steady momentum across cybersecurity, secure network and secure cloud as well as a strong reflection of the company’s high-performance and competitive mindset, as a leading VAD in the MEA region. The most significant highlight in 2022 was the merger with the Infinigate Group, supported by Bridgepoint, a game-changer for Starlink.
Klaus Schlichtherle, CEO of the Infinigate Group says: “The MEA region is now making a significant contribution to the wider Infinigate Group across EMEA, enhancing the joint offering both geographically and in terms of the technical expertise, benefitting the EMEA stakeholders – including vendors, customers and partners. Together, the Infinigate Group is planning to reach the $5B company revenue mark by 2027”.
Nidal Othman, MEA CEO of the Infinigate Group and founder of Starlink, says: “2022 was indeed another phenomenal year for Starlink, marking an important shift in our development. We upgraded our growth plans to intercept the opportunities open to us and unlock value for all our partners. Our portfolio expansion, new initiatives and channel growth have delivered exponential results. Given our strong track record and our joining the Infinigate Group, we have entered 2023 as a global leader and are looking forward to achieving further success”.
Mahmoud Nimer, MEA President of the Infinigate Group, states: “We are very positive about our collaboration with the Infinigate Group, and we fully intend to capitalise on our transformational synergies for a breakthrough performance in the coming years, as an EMEA leader. Our main priority is to offer valuable opportunities to our vendors and partners, contributing to their expertise – capitalising on the best of both worlds in terms of culture, market practices and most importantly inspire enterprises to navigate a seamless journey towards cyber resiliency”.
The 2023 Sales Kick-Off witnessed the unveiling of new initiatives aiming at empowering the vendor and partner communities with a robust value proposition to foster specialisation. We also aim to expand into untapped markets, establishing a stronger foothold in existing markets, supporting enterprises to rethink and revamp their cybersecurity efforts.
