Over his 20 year career, Katibeh held multiple executive positions at AT&T, including EVP Chief Product & Platform Officer and EVP Chief Marketing Officer of AT&T Business where he oversaw all product and marketing responsibilities, as well as go-to-market sales for digital, wholesale, and indirect channels – and was recognized as one of the World’s Most Influential CMOs by Forbes for 2019 and 2020. Under Katibeh’s leadership, AT&T established a multi-billion dollar communications, collaboration, and security business, driving market leading growth through development and deployment of innovative cloud-based technologies.

“I’m thrilled to join the RingCentral team as they continue to shape the future of enterprise communications,” said Katibeh. “The way we work is forever changed. Hybrid workforces everywhere need access to a reliable, global and secure messaging, video, and phone solution, whether they are in the office, at home, or on the go. As one of RingCentral’s first major go-to-market partners, I have seen firsthand how RingCentral delivers an incredible solution that’s a fit for businesses of all sizes. I look forward to working with the team to build on RingCentral’s core strengths of trust, innovation and partnerships to continue our leadership position in the exciting $100B+ cloud communications opportunity.”
