Al Shirawi quits as group chief.
Bahrain-based 2Connect managing director Fahad Al Shirawi will continue to remain as MENOG founding chair, an honorary title in recognition of his accomplishments.
MENOG is a regional forum offering telecommunication network engineers and other technical staff the opportunity to share knowledge and experiences and identify areas for regional co-operation.
In his final speech as MENOG chair, Mr Al Shirawi stressed the fact that this decision was made after all due consideration of what's best for the region in general and MENOG in particular.
"As a MENOG founder, I am extremely pleased with the progress we have made so far," he said.
"I'm throwing my unreserved support behind the new acting chairman, Sultan Al Shamsi from Etisalat, and wish him a successful term."
Mr Al Shirawi also announced his next project - he intends to start a country code top-level domain and Internet exchange (IX) point association collaborating with the region's various governments and independent IX's.
