Strategy& is a leading global consulting firm, helping the world’s top businesses, governments and organizations. It brings these global resources to bear in the Middle East where it is the longest-serving management consulting firm. We have 25 regional partners and more than 500 staff of 35 different nationalities currently serving clients in most of the countries of the GCC, the Levant, and North Africa. Active in the Middle East since the 1970s, Strategy& was the first global management consulting firm to open offices in 1993 — starting with our office in Abu Dhabi, followed by Dubai, Beirut, Riyadh, Cairo, and, most recently, Doha.

It is a very exciting time to be working in the Middle East. It is an area of remarkable socioeconomic diversity and a population that is steadily growing. The region has been going through incredible change, with industries and economic systems growing rapidly from the ground up. Strategy& has worked on a number of high-profile projects in the Middle East that have had a substantial impact on the region’s development.

Strategy& in the Middle East

The firm’s history in the Middle East is powerful. Since the 1993 launch of its operations in the region with a five-person office, the firm has established an impressive record. Today, more than 400 employees serve clients across the entire Middle East region from six regional offices, inspired by the opportunities and economic growth fueled by the liberalization and restructuring of many industries in the area. We have grown new business steadily while retaining our established clients.

Strategy&, with its commitment to top-quality service and investment in talented staff, has earned its reputation as the management consulting firm of choice for companies and governments in the Middle East region.

The make-up of our client base continues to evolve as the firm’s presence expands. We serve clients across the region in countries including Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates. 

We are enthusiastic about the ongoing growth of the regional economies and the opportunities created by the need to improve corporate and national governance. We feel deeply rewarded by the positive impact our work has had on the lives of people across the Middle East. We are also confident that these factors, combined with our number one position in the region, our inherent commitment to quality service, and the dedication of our staff, will ensure the continuing success of Strategy&’s Middle East business.

Strategy& has a new name and an expanding client base, but its fundamental elements remain unchanged. Edwin Booz’s vision of helping clients solve their toughest problems so they could thrive in an evolving world is as clear today as ever. We are excited about this new chapter in our company’s history and our place in it.
