Ezditek, an innovator in data centre and digital infrastructure services in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), has appointed Stuart Manby as Chief Sales Officer to position Ezditek for long-term growth on-the-ground across the KSA.

Manby will play a leading role in Ezditek’s growth strategy to provide world-class data centre solutions and establish the KSA as an international destination for digital innovation and transformation.

He has more than 25 years’ experience in the data centre market with roles at EDGNEX Data Centres by Damac, Global Switch, Ark Data Centres and Digital Realty. His strong technical and commercial background will help him excel as Chief Sales Officer of Ezditek, as it prepares for exciting expansion plans that encompass Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) policies and digital innovation. 

“Stuart has a proven history of accelerating business growth and executing on strategic goals in the data centre market. He is a strong leader who combines understanding of global digital infrastructure demands and local market requirements. It is great to have Stuart on board as we help to position the KSA as a global leader in digital innovation and provide a foundation as a global digital hub,” said Ibrahim Almulhim, CEO, Ezditek. “Ezditek is accelerating its growth as we deliver on our vision for innovation and sustainability in the data centre market. We’re excited to welcome Stuart to the team and work together to shape the future of KSA’s data centre market.”  

Ezditek plans to deliver high-capacity infrastructure across nine data centres in Riyadh, Jeddah and Dammam by 2030. Its carrier-neutral data centre hubs are designed to support the Kingdom’s Saudi Vision 2030 roadmap for economic diversification, global engagement and enhanced quality of life. 

“I’m excited to be joining an organisation with a clear strategy for delivering high-quality data centres and digital infrastructure that meets local and global demands,” said Stuart Manby, Chief Sales Officer at Ezditek. “Ezditek has a unique vision for the market and empowers its people to innovate and share new ideas. This is an excellent next step in my career with a company that is thinking differently about data centre design, build and operations.

“Ezditek’s core values of sustainability and innovation directly align with my own views on the future of our industry. We have an opportunity to push MENA’s data centre market forward and support Saudi Vision 2030,” Manby added.

Manby has spent two decades defining and executing sales strategies for global data centre organisations that drive long-term growth. He has a strong focus on disrupting the global data centre market and supporting the development of new digital hubs in local markets.
