Cattaruzzi has been with the technology firm for 13 years, leading the MENA business and operations since 2016.
Google has announced that Lino Cattaruzzi, its managing director for the Middle East and North Africa, will be leaving the region to take on a company leadership role as a global customer partner.
Anthony Nakache, who will take over as MD for Google MENA based in Dubai, joined the business 13 years ago and most recently headed the online partnerships group responsible for scaling Google’s monetisation solutions for publishers and developers throughout Europe, and the MENA.
Before moving to Google, Nakache worked in IT consulting and gained a master’s degree in business administration from INSEAD, and an engineering degree in telecommunications.
With a 13-year tenure at Google, Lino led the business and operations in MENA since 2016, during which he helped businesses in the region grow with the help of Google’s products and programmes, and accelerated the company’s growth and presence through regional office expansions.
