Syska opens Data Center office in Dubai to serve Middle East and Africa

Data Center Growth in emerging markets is hot, and one of the regions growing fast is the Middle East and Africa.  It can be difficult to understand those markets and I was quite excited to hear one of my data center friends has relocated to Dubai to be a local resource for the market.


Syska has made a press release announcing their office in Dubai with VP Greg Jasmin running the local office.  I met Greg years ago as he was one of my early followers on this blog.  We have had many great conversations about green data centers and how sustainable approaches can be applied, and I am sure we will have many more interesting conversations as he services one of the high growth data center markets.  Connecting with great people makes my day. :-)

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Syska Hennessy Group, Inc. a leading global consulting, engineering and commissioning firm, is underscoring its commitment to clients in the Middle East/North Africa (MENA) region by opening a permanent office in Dubai’s Internet City, United Arab Emirates (UAE).


Syska Hennessy Group's global presence is continuing to expand with the formation of Syska Hennessy Group MENA. The new entity is the result of a joint venture between SH Group, Inc., the parent company of Syska Hennessy Group and LZ Technologies Middle East FZ-LLC. The new company will be led by Greg Jasmin, a vice president of Syska Hennessy Group, and Bassem Hariri, of LZ Technologies Middle East FZ-LLC. Mr. Jasmin will serve as co-managing director of the firm's Dubai office, overseeing operations and assuming technical leadership of the enterprise, while Mr. Hariri, also co-managing director, will oversee client relations and business development.


Syska Hennessy Group has enjoyed long term success in the region with signature projects throughout Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the UAE. Jasmin commented, "Syska has been active in the Middle East for more than 30 years but we've never had a permanent presence. Now we both live and work here, elevating our commitment to this strategic region. Being in the region will certainly help Syska Hennessy broaden its array of platinum-level clients, as these clients seek out the experience and technical expertise that we bring from the U.S. to help solve the challenges these clients face in building exceptional buildings."
