Markus M. Golder was appointed last year as the chief executive officer at Intigral, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Saudi Telecom Co. and the leading provider of digital entertainment and sports in the MENA region.
Intigral recently released its original Al-Awael program and exclusively broadcasted “Beyond Survival,” the Misk Foundation’s first film documentary series. Both critics and audiences have praised the shows for promoting social integration and development and inspiring Saudi society to be more resilient and ambitious.
Golder’s role at Intigral is to supervise the overall strategy, operations, and performance of the company.
He received an MSc in electrical engineering in 1993 from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. Some six years later, Golder obtained an MBA from the London Business School.
His impressive track record is derived from prominent regional and international executive appointments within both incumbents and challenger telecom operators across Western and Eastern Europe, and the Middle East markets.
Prior to joining Intigral, Golder has held various leadership roles with STC in Saudi Arabia, including vice president of marketing in the consumer business unit and CEO of Jawwy.
He has served as chief commercial officer at GO in Malta, where he led a 300-strong team and managed commercial activities, including strategy, planning, marketing, consumer and business sales, wholesale and customer service. He started his career as a consultant with AWK Engineering in Switzerland, and was the marketing director and a member of the executive management team of Vivacom in Bulgaria and the Zurich-based Swiss telecom provider Sunrise Communications AG in Switzerland.
He also served as chief marketing officer with Nawras, now known as Ooredoo in Oman.
