Regional professional services firm RAI has bolstered its Digital Health practice with two new recruits: Khalid Bohoudi and Khalid Hawary.

The duo both join RAI’s Digital business (one of the firm’s three divisions alongside Audit and Tax), which helps clients with strategising their future digital agenda and with realising their digital transformation roadmap.

“We are very proud to have Khalid and Khalid join our family and lead our Digital Health practice. They bring extensive expertise across innovative technologies and solutions, and will add significant value to our clients,” said Sa’ed Gossous, CEO of RAI’s Digital division.

Appointed a Vice President, Khalid Bohoudi has over a dozen years of experience in consulting. He joins RAI from Big Four firm EY, where he latterly was a director in the Abu Dhabi office. Earlier he worked for PwC’s Middle East and Dutch member firms (Bohoudi completed his studies in the Netherlands and relocated to the region in 2014) and also had a brief graduate spell at EY.

Based in RAI’s Riyadh office, Bohoudi specialises in large scale digital and data transformation projects in the healthcare space.

Appointed a Senior Manager, Khalid Hawary is a clinician by background who now specialises in topics at the intersection of medical and management consulting. Also a former EY consultant – he previously spent over two years in the firm’s Riyadh office – Hawary joins from IQVIA, one of the globe’s larger professional services firms to the healthcare and life sciences sector.

Earlier, Hawary spent four years at the King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre in medical and data science roles. At RAI, he specialises in future healthcare technology designs and roadmaps, telematics, and large implementation projects.

The double appointment comes shortly after RAI welcomed Diana Morozova, Louis Thornton, and Badr Nassif to its team in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

Founded in 2019, RAI is a consulting and broader professional services firm that positions itself as a homegrown challenger to the larger international groups. The majority of the firm’s senior team have a background at EY, including Ahmad Dahabiyeh (CEO), Alexander Collins (COO), Sa’ed Gossous (CEO of RAI Digital), and Alhareth Almubarak (Managing Director).
