Mohammad Chabayta has joined as Sales Director for Juniper’s STC account team, and will be responsible for helping the telecom provider address its most complex technical challenges. Chabayta was formerly Vice President of the STC account at Ericsson KSA, and brings both extensive knowledge of the local business landscape and a detailed understanding of the customer’s business objectives.

Fayez Eweidat has been appointed as Sales Director, enterprise, overseeing META region. In this role, he is focused on helping Juniper’s enterprise customers in the region to undergo digital transformation in their businesses. Previously, Mr. Eweidat was senior regional sales manager at Brocade Communications Systems.
