PA Consulting Group has bolstered its presence in the Middle East and North Africa with 14 new appointments.



The new recruits, from countries including Bahrain, India, Jordan, Lebanon and the UK, include Roisin Duffy and Helena Morén, two internal appointments from PA offices in London and Stockholm respectively, who have relocated to the region to work within the transport and IT transformation sectors.


Jason Harborow, Head of PA Consulting Group Middle East and North Africa, said: “We have started this year with an aggressive recruitment drive to support our growth plans for the region.  The increased headcount is vital to the ongoing delivery of work we are producing for our clients across a variety of industries.


“The government services, healthcare, and transport, travel and logistics sectors continue to be major areas of expansion for PA, both globally and within our region, and we are bringing together the best minds in the business to ensure the offering to our current and future clients is unbeatable.”


Joining the PA MENA healthcare team, Hamssa Qureshi brings extensive experience from the UK working on the NHS’s National Screening Programme to rollout a failsafe system for new born babies, while Ahed Ebrahim has moved to the company from EY where he worked across a range of projects including performance improvement in healthcare and life sciences companies.


Holding an MBA from Warwick University in the UK, Joseph Murphy has more than 20 years’ experience in commercial directorship and the ability to influence organisational strategy.  Having worked throughout the UK, Middle East and Brunei, he has a track record of implementing high profile, high value defence projects and has delivered work for clients around the world in the logistics, telecom and energy sectors.


Lina Shabeeb is an education strategy consultant with more than 10 years of industry and consulting experience throughout the GCC markets across K-12, higher education, vocational training, education for employment, and health and social care education.  She is also interested in teachers’ professional development, and women education and employment.


Harborow added: “We are also making great strides in balancing the gender ratio of our team, with 10 new female colleagues appointed, all of whom offer the MENA practice invaluable experience in their chosen fields.”


Bringing fresh experience and knowledge across a broad spectrum of services, Tanya Kauchhur is an expert communicator with involvement in business analysis and development, and project management, while Chama Mengad has functional expertise in delivering business design, people and change management, corporate strategy, and performance improvement across a wide range of sectors and organisations.


Nupur Nagesh will capitalise on her UAE experience working across sectors including maritime, oil and gas, government, and travel and tourism, and Steffi Birack will provide clients with advisory services including benchmarking analyses, workforce planning, organisational transformation, and compensation and benefits design. 


PA Consulting Group has been operating in the Gulf region for over 30 years, successfully delivering more than 150 projects in 13 Middle Eastern countries, across sectors including healthcare, financial services, transport, energy, government, defence and security, education and manufacturing.
