Mohamad Ali

President and Chief Executive Officer

Throughout his career, Mohamad has recognized the importance of diversity in the workplace and has prioritized these initiatives within his organization. As CEO of Carbonite — and his leadership positions at other global tech companies including IBM and HP — Mohamad has seen first-hand how critical talent is to the success of a business. This talent must be sourced from a variety of places, which often starts with education and skills training.

Mohamad is involved in a number of organizations, including Hack. Diversity that focuses on providing more opportunities for highly-skilled minority populations by encouraging students to work with local technology companies, including Carbonite. This program not only improves the underrepresentation of minority employees in the Boston area, but also helps students develop the skills they need to participate and thrive in the growing tech sector. He also works with regional organizations, such as the Massachusetts Technology Leadership Council, to support a number of initiatives that prioritize opportunities for diversity within the tech industry.

In 2017, Mohamad led the charge in launching the Carbonite Charitable Fund that supports STEM programs to ultimately help close the tech talent gap by providing more opportunities through education.

As an immigrant, diversity has always been an important topic, and one that is especially close to Mohamad’s experiences throughout his life. From speaking at the naturalization ceremony at the JFK Library, to signing the Pledge to Stand with Dreamers in an effort to support immigration-friendly policies, he continues to give back and provide opportunity for individuals of all backgrounds.
