Kalaam Telecom, a leading managed solutions provider for businesses across GCC and international markets, has emerged as a winner for The Bahrain Award for Entrepreneurship as the “Enterprise of the Year with International footprint” at the Award Ceremony held yesterday at Isa Cultural Hall.
The Award was held under the patronage of His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince, Deputy supreme Commander and First Deputy Prime Minister. The Bahrain Award for Entrepreneurship celebrated the achievements of Bahrain’s entrepreneurs and their socio-economic role in spurring a private sector driven economy.
Kalaam Telecom’s Chairman, Mr. Nezar Al Saie said, “Kalaam’s success is attributable to a number of factors including a clearly defined strategy of focusing on serving the enterprise market, of expanding its value-added services, and a regional expansion beyond our home market in Bahrain. This award recognizes Kalaam as the only Bahraini telecom company to become a regional operator through the acquisition of Tawasul Telecom in Kuwait.
Kalaam’s motivated, competent professionals understanding of our customers’ needs and focus on delivering best customer experience is a major competitive edge.”
Nezar Al Saie further added “Kalaam’s owners are committed and focused on creating long term value. Additionally, the excellent ecosystem that exists in Bahrain being the most liberal telecom market in the region with a comprehensive telecom law that is bench-marked with the best practiced telecom laws, and vigorously & equitably enforced by the Telecom Regulatory Authority (TRA) have insured a fair level-playing field for all telecom service providers, large or small. As part of this positive ecosystem, Tamkeen has played an important role in nourishing and fostering the growth of small & medium sized companies such as Kalaam through various programs such as training and wages support and business development support.”
The company currently has a presence in 6 countries including Bahrain, UAE, Kuwait, KSA, Singapore and UK.
