The Zain Story: Success with a Big Heart In 1994, Zain (formerly known as Fastlink), revolutionized telecommunications in Jordan by introducing GSM mobile services into the country. Zain quickly became the foremost telecom company in Jordan, a position that it kept to this day through a far sighted policy of investment in adopting cutting edge technology to provide state of the art services to clients, and investment in community development through the most active and substantive corporate social responsibility (CSR) program in the country.
Mr Al Hanandeh, a Jordanian national, joined as Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of the successful Zain Sudan mobile operation in March 2011. Before that, he was for four years the General Manager of Posta Plus, the Gulf-based company specializing in world-class delivery, courier and postal services across the Middle East. From 1994 to 2006, he was a key member of the Aramex Group initially joining as an accountant and rising to country manager of several of Aramex’s Asian operations.
