About Middle East Alumni

Over the last few years, the Middle East team has grown significantly. As the office and the region have grown and changed, so too have some of our colleagues who have chosen a different career focus and moved on to opportunities elsewhere.

But no matter where their career takes them, Strategy& alumni stand apart from other professionals. Each one, having learned to embrace the philosophy of helping clients, inspiring innovation, and demonstrating leadership, is undoubtedly continuing to boost enthusiasm and surpass management’s expectations in a new workplace.

Another outstanding attribute shared by Strategy&’s former employees is the ability to connect with one another. They realize that fresh approaches and imaginative solutions are always in demand, no matter where they are expending their efforts. And time and again, alumni pursue those fresh ideas by reaching out and further expanding the Strategy& global network.

It is this alumni network that strengthens collaboration between groups, encouraging a synergistic approach from which employees, partners, and clients can all learn. This is why we believe that remaining closely and effectively connected to our expanding alumni network is essential.

If you have any suggestions or want to learn more about the Middle East alumni program, please reach out to Hala Maalouf.
