Microsoft has named Ibrahim Youssry as the Regional General Manager of the software company's newly created MEA Multi Country Cluster (MCC).

"I look forward to working with Ibrahim and the MCC team, not only to drive our customer's success but also to invest in digital skills building and youth upliftment in Nigeria," Banuso said.
