His in-depth experience of working in the financial services industry across the Middle East makes him an ideal candidate to run our newly launched office in Bahrain. Not only has he led cross-sector teams and developed significant business contacts in the region, he’s also recruited and developed Bahraini consultants to drive local activities on the ground, taking the type of client-centric approach that ADL is renowned for.”

To deliver the best possible value to our clients, we need to combine our global perspective on trends with a deep understanding of the local business context. I’m really excited at the prospect of leading and developing a high-performing team at ADL Bahrain that works across cultures and quickly delivers sustainable growth.”
