The Atlantic Council, a nonpartisan US organisation that shapes solutions for global economic and societal challenges, has appointed Oliver Wyman senior partner Dominik Treeck as a nonresident fellow for its empowerME initiative at the Rafik Hariri Center for the Middle East. 

In the Middle East, the Atlantic Council works on topics including security, financial and energy markets, US foreign policy and economic stability. To this end, the Council has a number of platforms, including the empowerME initiative. Established in 2020, this initiative works to shape solutions to empower entrepreneurs, women, and youth and build coalitions of public and private partnerships to drive regional economic integration, prosperity, and job creation. 

In the role of senior fellow, Dominik Treeck will apply his experience advising regional ministers of finance, central banks, regulators, development banks, and leading financial institutions to help empowerME advance its agenda.

Treeck has been with Oliver Wyman for two decades. He currently is a leader in the firm’s Public Sector & Policy practice, which advises public policy makers on topics including market development, competitiveness, services and governance, and other institutions such as regulators and sovereign wealth funds on organisation and capacity building. 

For over a decade, Treeck – who is based in London – has been particularly focused on clients in the GCC. His areas of expertise include: financial sector development and diversification, effective governance in the public sector, strategic planning for central banks and regulators, risk assessments and national strategies to fight economic crime, public-private partnerships, and public policy interface management for private sector institutions and industry bodies.

Prior to joining Oliver Wyman, Treeck had stints working in research roles for the United Nations and the African Development Bank. 

Commenting on Treeck’s appointment, William Wechsler, director of the Rafik Hariri Center and Middle East Program (which oversees the empowerME initiative) said, “We continue to recruit nonresident fellows to the Atlantic Council who strengthen our impact with their expertise, their deep connections in the Middle East and Washington, and their solutions-oriented approach.” 

“The addition of Dominik will allow our team to expand its geographic range and focus on key topics between the United States and our Middle Eastern partners.”

Meanwhile, the Atlantic Council also appointed four fellows to its Scowcroft Middle East Security Initiative: Khaled Alyemany, Clarke Cooper, Ariel Ezrahi, and Matthew Zais.
