Elnaggar arrives with a background at the Big Four (he served PwC for two years in Egypt), but gained nearly all his experience in industry. Most recently, he served as Head of Direct & International Tax at Al Tayer Group, and before that, he led the Middle East tax department of Nissan, and was Head of Tax for Saudi Arabia and Egypt at Ericsson. He also worked for the Egyptian Tax Authority, Novartis and ACWA Power.

“Hany brings with him a strong tax technical experience and his exposure to Middle East and GCC countries will immensely help our clients. We look forward to serving our clients on their tax needs,” said Nimish Goel, a partner at WTS Dhruva Consultants and an alumnus of three of the Big Four firms.

Incepted in India, WTS Dhruva Consultants launched its Middle East operations in Dubai in 2017 with a focus on indirect tax services. Since then, the consulting firm has expanded into other segments (including VAT and corporate tax) and grown into one of the region’s larger pure-play firms in the tax advisory landscape.

WTS Dhruva Consultants currently hosts a 50+ strong team across offices in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. According to Goel, the firm is eyeing moves into the markets of Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

“I am delighted to join WTS Dhruva Consultants, a fast-growing advisory firm and a well-known player in the tax consulting landscape. I’m excited to be part of the team,” Elnaggar said on his move.
