Michael Al-Nassir, Partner in charge of the Middle East, Africa & India (MEAI) region commented on the event: “We have been closely following the developments in North Africa and saw that our clients in the Gulf and Europe were looking to capitalise on the opportunities presented by this region and its maturing and mobile executive talent. That is why we want to provide our clients with local presence in Egypt, combining our broad international coverage with local market knowledge in order to support them in executive recruitment needs. With such an experienced manager heading our Cairo office, we believe our clients will continue receiving highly competent and professional advice.”
