IT consulting firm adds partners and seven new vice presidents
Strategy and IT consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton has announced a significant expansion of its Middle East North Africa (MENA) presence, growing its experienced senior leadership team with five new partners to offer a strong combination of strategy consulting and digital expertise.
The MENA team will be led by executive vice president and managing director Ramez Shehadi, who brings more than 17 years of consulting experience helping private and public organisations maximise their leverage of technology to achieve operational efficiencies, improve relevance of infrastructure and develop next-generation digital services. He will be supported by the following partners, all of whom have a long standing experience in MENA.
The firm's new partners bring long standing ties to the MENA region and expertise in the oil and gas, utilities, financial services, information and communication technology, healthcare, and public sector markets. In addition, Booz Allen Hamilton has added seven new vice presidents and is attracting further talent at various levels. This expansion builds on four decades of service to private and public sector clients in MENA and cohesively blends expertise in core industries and vertical markets with the leading pedigree of the firm in cybersecurity, data analytics, operations, human capital and organisational development, engineering, life-cycle project management and digital innovation.
"In our 100th year, Booz Allen is investing in the future, and the MENA region offers opportunities and challenges for clients that are now more prepared than ever to embrace us as their essential partner," said Joseph Logue, executive vice president, Booz Allen Hamilton. "While, government and commercial institutions have significantly modernised in recent years, the rapidly evolving needs of societies require a constant emphasis on adapting infrastructure and technology, services and regulations. The addition of our new senior team in the region will allow us to address these needs in a sustainable and results driven way."
