Top gooidev executive to lead a Middle East initiative

Company is supporting strong business opportunities in MENA region

DES MOINES, Iowa (Nov. 1, 2015) Jay Namboor, chief product officer of gooidev, will be the first key executive to land in the Middle East, as part of the company’s response to a significant uptick in business opportunities in the region.

“We are committing one of our most valuable executives to this assignment,” said gooidev CEO Paul N. Greenwood.  “We are experiencing a range of business opportunities there and it makes sense to put Jay there for an initial rotation.”

Namboor, who will be based in Dubai, will provide client support as well as recruiting and training local talent for the app and web development company’s international team of specialists. “Our business development effort will require new hires and interns in the region,” he said.

Namboor is an experienced consultant, solving complex technology issues for Fortune 500 companies in manufacturing, financial services and digital media. He built a foundation as a business analyst. “He has a deep understanding of regulatory issues and an unusual ability to synthesize complex business requirements,” said Greenwood.

Since 2013, Namboor’s talents have been used in the creation of mygooi and its subsidiary companies, in all aspects of the branding, technology and business operations.

“Extensive international experience bolsters his leadership in the gooidev efforts in India and the Middle East, where he will execute our management plan and business development functions for the software development platform,” said Greenwood.

Namboor starts the assignment tomorrow (Nov. 2, 2015).
