BCG adds two new partners to Middle East practice

23 February 2018 3 min. read

The Boston Consulting Group has moved to strengthen its People & Organization and Energy practices in the Middle East with the addition of Yves Morieux and Andreas Kyrilis to its local partnership ranks.

In line with The Boston Consulting Group’s ongoing expansion in the Middle East over the past decade, which last year saw the management consulting firm add an office in Riyadh to its existing regional bases in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, the local arm has now welcomed two new Partners to its footprint.

Joining a regional leadership team consisting of over 20 Partners, Yves Morieux and Andreas Kyrilis will be tasked, respectively, with consolidating and strengthening BCG’s local People & Organization and Energy divisions in a move to sustain the firm’s continued growth and bolster its expertise in BCG’s areas of business priority.

Drafted in from the Washington DC office, where he was a Partner and Managing Director and served as the director for BCG’s Institute of Organization, Morieux has been with the company for over 20 years, working previously in the firm’s Paris and Mumbai offices.

A BCG Fellow during the past decade, Morieux is an international expert and thought leader in corporate transformation, having contributed to the development of organisational theory and advised over 500 global organisations across numerous industries on strategy and transformation, including senior executives of prominent corporations and public-sector bodies.     

Prior to joining BCG, Morieux, who holds a PhD in Industrial Marketing and a MASt in Organisational Sociology, was for a time the director of a private research and consulting practice that specialised in the application of social sciences to commercial markets, and had earlier served his consulting apprenticeship as a Project Leader at Arthur D. Little in Paris.

Kyrilis, meanwhile, is a familiar face with BCG in the Middle East, having being based at the firm’s Dubai office since joining in 2009, initially working as a consultant on strategy design and implementation before climbing his way up to Principal, and now Partner, with a specialist focus in the Oil & Gas field.

Kyrilis holds a Masters in Engineering/Civil Engineering and an MBA in General Management, and has extensive experience consulting on strategy and corporate development, having led a number of high-profile projects on strategy, large-scale transformation, IPO preparation, and operational excellence during his time with BCG.

Joerg Hildebrandt, Senior Managing Partner at BCG Middle East, said of the newly named partners; “Expanding our team roster with Yves and Andreas is a value-added move to sustain our continued growth and excel in priority business areas…As Partners, they will each bring their valuable experience, comprehensive insight, and steadfast dedication to the teams of BCG Middle East.”

A little further afield in the MENA region, BCG recently announced Hamid Maher as a Partner and Managing Director for the firm’s Casablanca office in Morocco.
