Taif Al Jubouri founded Spectrum Integrated Solutions in 2010. Ms. Al Jubouri is responsible for managing and supervising Spectrum’s day to day operations and acts as the company business development director. As Spectrum’s client relations manager, she understands that each client’s organization has its own unique set of needs, and works diligently to ensure that those needs are met. She possesses the necessary vision to guide Spectrum’s clients in their future approaches, whether they are entering the international work place for the first time, or exploring opportunities to expand their reach in that market.

Ms. Al Jubouri brought a wealth of knowledge and experience with her when she formed Spectrum. She has proven herself to be a highly effective communications engineer and successful manager, displaying an ability to run complex organizations. Having managed a broadcasting department for the first Digital Video Broadcasting-Terrestrial in the Middle East, her talents were a key component to the success of the switch to digital transmission from an analogue distribution system, the first switch of its kind in a non-European nation. The experience that she gained during this time has equipped her to oversee the day to day operations of Spectrum.

Ms. Al Jubouri also served as a Project Control Specialist for US forces on a multi-million USD VSAT project that lead to the implementation of the first internet project in Iraq, after 2003. Armed with the skills that she developed during this enterprise, she is now responsible for strategic planning for Spectrum. Her expertise in strategic planning is further strengthened by her past role as a Contracts Administrator and Operations Officer for one of the largest security providers to the US Government in Iraq, during which time she helped orchestrate the logistics for two contracts worth $50 million.

Ms. Al Jubouri has consistently demonstrated her ability to approach large scale projects with precision, managing to focus on the “big picture” while not losing sight of the innumerable details that demand equal attention in order to ensure the success of her clients. Her skill set in this arena has been finely honed by her time as an Office Engineer and Liaison Officer for the US Army Corp of Engineers, where she was responsible for maintaining essential services in Iraq’s International Zone. In this position, she was a primary contact between the US Embassy in Baghdad and the Iraqi Utility Services. Spectrum’s clients have gained a notable advantage by relying on her unique perspective in regards to business development, due in no small part to her background as the Business Development Director and Regional Manager in Iraq for two US companies based in Washington, DC.

Taif Al Jubouri earned her Bachelor of Science in the Electrical Engineering Department of the University of Technology in Baghdad, Iraq.
