When GBM was founded in 1990 the company and the region looked very different. In 1990 the GDP for the GCC was US $207 billion and GBM had 135 employees whilst in 2015 the GDP of the GCC is estimated to hit US $1.8 trillion and GBM now employs around 1,300 people across the region. This incredible growth has made this region the most dynamic on the planet and GBM is very proud to have played a part in that.
For many years GBM has nurtured partnerships with the world’s leading technology companies and invested in a talented, skilled workforce that provides round-the-clock support to customers across the region. We have an established presence in every country in which we operate which means we have a strong understanding of local needs, coupled with access to international expertise and technologies.
GBM works with customers across both public and private organisations, helping to concentrate on the delivery of their core business whilst safe in the knowledge that their IT needs are being serviced by our team of experts. As you would expect from the regions number one supplier of IT solutions, GBM has extensive experience across a multitude of industry verticals including retail, government, telecommunications, and oil & gas.
We are proud to have been born in this region and ever since our focus has remained entirely on this region. This means that we are uniquely placed to combine the deep regional understanding and experience that we have built over many years with the very best IT solutions the industry has to offer. This, coupled with our on the ground experts ensures that GBM provides the most effective way of designing and implementing IT solutions across a wide range of industries and geographies.
As we continue to evolve as a company so must our brand and our image in the market evolve. Therefore in our 25th year we have launched a refreshed look to the GBM brand. One that has been developed with strategic thought and conceptualised in a way that highlights to our customers, our partners and our team that we are moving forward with determination.
Welcome to the new era of GBM, and to another successful 27 years.
