He also joins the Executive Management Team as an official member
Paris, 28 October 2019 - Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise* has announced the promotion of Moussa Zaghdoud to Executive Vice-President (EVP) of the Cloud Communication Business Division (CCBD). The Board of Directors has also appointed him as an official member of the Executive Management Team (EMT).
For the last six months Moussa occupied the position of General Manager and Deputy Head of CCBD, with ALE CEO Jack Chen as the acting lead. His promotion and EMT appointment reinforces the company’s strategic commitment to Cloud solutions.
A key component of the ALE strategy is to provide cloud solutions to enterprise customers, and Moussa has been instrumental in the company’s transformation in this area. He is the inventor of Rainbow, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise cloud collaboration platform, and has been responsible for the development and operations of the ALE cloud solutions, as well as go-to-market cloud offer, for the last three years.
This past August, less than two years after the launch of Rainbow, ALE entered the Gartner Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) Magic Quadrant 2019. With a cloud platform delivering both UCaaS and Communication Platform as a Service (CPaaS) capabilities, as well as robust year-on-year growth for cloud, ALE continues to accelerate its transformation in the Cloud business sector.
Moussa’s passion for Cloud is reflected in his impressive career in the enterprise software industry where he founded two Cloud startups providing virtual call centre services and artificial intelligence-based predictive routing services to enterprises. Asked how plans to continue pursuing his passion in service of ALE customers, Moussa says “I am committed to giving enterprises the next generation communication solutions they need to accelerate their own business and maintain an edge over competition. During my time at ALE, the company has aggressively pursued its Cloud business transformation objectives and seen tremendous results and growth. I am excited to engage the next chapter of this strategic development and impatient to foresee positive outcomes and perspective ahead of us.”
