Feenics opens office in the Middle East
Ottawa-based Feenics, a provider of access control as a service (ACaaS) technology, recently opened a new office in Beirut, Lebanon, led by Nancy Abou Eid.
Abou Eid was one of the first employees of Feenics and an architect of the original Keep by Feenics solution, according to the company. Her focus will include markets such as Dubai and Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.
“I’m excited to be an integral part of the Feenics team again,” said Abou Eid in a statement. “The Keep solution has progressed dramatically since the company’s start up in 2010, as has acceptance of the cloud for safe and secure access control management. It’s where the future is going and the Middle East region is receptive and open to the advantages of cloud computing.”
“We have many global customers and that requires us to expand our footprint,” added Sam Shalaby, Chief Executive Officer of Feenics. “Nancy hit the ground running and she’s out to make things happen. She was one of our engineers and we had kept the lines of communication open, so when the opportunity presented itself she was perfect for the role.”
Feenics also has locations in North America and Latin America.
