You’ve worked in various cities across the globe. What brought you to the Middle East?
After working in the US, France, the UK, India, and Hong Kong, I was drawn to the Middle East because it truly feels like the right place for me to be now. I’m based in the UAE and there’s a real sense of dynamism and momentum here—with new ideas being explored and implemented at a rapid pace. It’s exciting to work with clients who really want to make their mark on the world stage.
How has your experience been so far at Strategy&?
Everything is going well, and it has been ever since I managed my first project for Strategy& as a contractor, working on one of the region’s mega-projects. That project was a great match for me, and it felt like all the stars aligned when it came to the client, the team, and my personal interests. So, as a logical next step, I applied for a permanent position.
Currently, I balance my time between client work and business development, and I have passed my certification in ESG finance. The Strategy& financial services practice has grown really fast and we have a number of new joiners. I’ve really enjoyed getting to know my colleagues better through sports and social events.
