About Hay Group in the Middle East


Hay Group is a global management consulting firm that works with leaders to transform strategy into reality. We develop organisations and people to be more effective and motivate them to perform at their best. Our focus is on making change happen and helping people and organisations realise their potential.

As Managing Director for the Middle East it’s my job to inspire and enable our consultants to help make these changes happen within our clients’ organisations. With over 20 years’ experience in the Middle East, Hay Group has been here to help organisations through periods of phenomenal change. This market continues to evolve and we are evolving with it; making a positive impact on the organisations we partner with, their people, and the society we are all living in.

Our clients come from the private, public and not-for-profit sectors across the Middle East and North African region from Egypt in the west to Oman in the east. Right now, we are working with our clients on regional challenges such as nationalisation of the GCC workforces, the appetite for sustainable leadership development, and the continual need to provide an attractive employee value proposition.

For more than 60 years, we have been renowned for the quality of our research and the intellectual rigour of our work. We have over 3,000 employees working in 88 offices in 49 countries. In the Middle East this includes over 120 consultants in the Middle East who focus not only on consulting to businesses but on really understanding the industry sectors and environment that their clients are operating within.

I invite you to contact us to discuss how we can help your organisation realise it’s potential.
