Who We Are
Benta Arabia was established in 2015 by Waleed Al Marzuki. His vision was to build a company that could help harness expertise from around the globe to evolve the Kingdom's drive towards a digital economy.
Since 2015, Benta Arabia has supported companies to drive major technology transformations by identifying, supplying, and managing highly skilled talent for Technology, Digital, Public Cloud and Security based portfolios.
The organisation has become one of the leading companies in the Kingdom helping companies with transformation-led challenges, with people-led solutions.
In 2023 Benta Arabia and Linnk Group entered a joint venture creating Linnk Arabia. The boards at Benta and Linnk Group identified the emerging drive towards STEM expertise in the Kingdom would be crucial for the Saudi Arabian 2030 vision. Bringing the expertise and know-how of both companies together to be one of the first omnichannel STEM talent companies in the Kingdom.
The future of STEM jobs in Saudi Arabia looks bright, as the country continues to invest heavily in developing its STEM education and workforce to support the growing demand for skilled professionals in these fields.
The Saudi Vision 2030 plan has set ambitious targets for increasing the number of STEM jobs in the country, with a focus on developing new industries and sectors that rely heavily on skills, such as renewable energy, biotechnology, and artificial intelligence.
Inspired by his grandfathers' stories of their travels as tradesmen a century ago and fueled by his heritage as an ancient traveler, Waleed actively pursues modern trade opportunities. He began his journey working as a news anchor, whilst excelling academically and later becoming the president of the students' club in King Saud University. After graduation, he taught whilst he pursued postgraduate studies, eventually lecturing at the College of Technology and winning recognition for his excellence from the Prince of Riyadh (King Salman). His academic career also involved establishing partnerships with foreign institutes, resulting in the establishment of new branches in Saudi Arabia.
Transitioning to the public sector, Waleed played a crucial role in various partnerships with companies like Boeing, MA'ADEN, and ALMARAI, contributing to the development of major polytechnics and industries in Saudi Arabia. This experience led him to co-found Benta Arabia, an ICT consultancy firm, which quickly grew and achieved significant success. Reflecting on his 30 years of experience, Waleed then embarked on a joint venture with the Linnk Group to establish Linnk Arabia in 2023.
Throughout his career, Waleed volunteered to co-found numerous nonprofit organizations, associations, rehabilitation centers and has engaged in various entrepreneurial ventures. Waleed believes in promoting dialogue between cultures and civilizations and has published books on this subject, including "Mecca in the Eyes of the West," with plans to adapt it into a docudrama film.
Waleed's grandfathers' tales of desert caravans and overseas voyages continue to shape his vision for the future. He aims to establish a pioneering joint venture with his local team from Arabia's deserts and London's shores, that upskill Saudi IT engineers and science graduates to become high-caliber STEM consultants. This endeavor serves his beloved country, Saudi Arabia.
