Global strategic operations consultancy Kearney has promoted Dubai-based Naman Sharma to partner.

Naman Sharma’s promotion is part of a global intake of new partners worldwide. Globally, Kearney – which founded in 1926 in the US as a branch of today-rival McKinsey & Company – has over 3,500 employees led by a group of 200+ partners. Per July 1st, 2021, over a dozen of new members have admitted into the partnership, with Sharma the sole Middle East advisor to be appointed.

Having been with the consulting firm for just under a decade, Sharma specialises in corporate and business strategy, growth strategy, commercial due diligence, turnaround, financial performance analysis, portfolio management, go-to market strategy, organisation design, and transaction execution.

He has worked across sectors, including oil & gas, construction, fashion retail, education and private equity, however, Sharma specialises in the financial services sector. A member of Kearney’s Financial Services practice, he advises leaders in retail banking, investment banking, asset management, as well as those in the fintech space. 

Sharma joined Kearney in Dubai after obtaining his MBA in Finance from HEC Paris. Earlier in his career, he spent seven years at Infosys, working on large cross-functional business and technology projects focused on new product launches, post-merger integration, application architecture integration and business process re-engineering for Fortune500 clients.

Meanwhile, Kearney also promoted a Middle East-based trio to principal level: Arben Nasi, Maximilian Chowanetz and Mehmet Cekirdekci.
