22 September 2015 3 min. read

PA Consulting Group has added two senior transport and logistics experts to its team in the Middle East. Paul Carey and Charlotte Warburton are both based in the firm’s Dubai office.

Paul Carey has been with PA Consulting Group since 2010, and has been based in Dubai since transferring from the firm’s London office in 2013. He has in the last three years worked for the Middle East’s leading aviation businesses, helping them solve complex challenges in organisation design, lean, large programme delivery and operational excellence. During his tenure in the UK, he worked with a range of FTSE100 companies. Prior to joining PA, Carey worked for financial services company Legal & General and AMP, a wealth management services provider. 

“I am inspired by the ambition and drive of leadership in Middle Eastern companies and working with some of the fastest growing companies in the world with a wide variety of nationalities and cultures is hugely rewarding for me. In my new role, I am looking forward to driving PA’s renewed focus in the transport and logistics sector, solving our clients’ most difficult challenges which will, in turn, promote growth, prosperity and development to the region’s economies,” said Carey.

Charlotte Warburton joins PA from Advance, a UK based consulting firm that helps its customer grow their business and talent. Based in Qatar, Warburton led the firm’s Middle East projects, and prior to that, she worked for several companies in the region, including Abu Dhabi Oil Company, Majitek and Nakheel. She started her career in 2005 with Accenture, after graduating from Newcastle University in the UK.

Warburton has in recent years successfully delivered company strategies, business transformation, change programmes and project delivery support in the healthcare, infrastructure (rail and road), oil & gas, manufacturing and asset management sectors. “The opportunities within the Middle East infrastructure sector to help transform business are vast,” she remarked. “My experience in developing business models, designing organisational structures, setting up multi-cultural Joint Ventures and implementing change management plans will all be well utilised here with our portfolio of clients,” Warburton added.

Commenting on the two additions, Jason Harborow, Head of PA Consulting Group for the Middle East and North Africa, said: “Paul’s experience within aviation and Charlotte’s knowledge within rail and road infrastructure will serve them and their colleagues well in growing the transportation sector of the business. The contribution and value Paul and Charlotte offer their clients today stand them in good stead for future opportunities so that they can both make the most of their new roles.” 

PA Consulting Group has been operating in the Middle East region for the last 30 years, delivering more than 150 projects in 13 countries.
