Booz Allen Hamilton Starts Business Operations In Kuwait

[Techtaffy Newsdesk]

Strategy and technology consulting company Booz Allen Hamilton has been registered by the Kuwait Ministry of Commerce and Industry, via an in-country agent, to pursue business opportunities and support the country’s social and economic development strategies, says the company.

“Kuwait is taking significant steps toward establishing itself a regional center of excellence in the areas of energy, finance and trade. Additionally, the government is supporting infrastructure projects and social programs designed to drive new FDI into the country and streamline global trade,” said Senior Vice President Don Pressley, who leads the firm’s MENA operations.

Booz Allen Hamilton will provide specialist services to government and commercial clients on critical issues related to economic development in the areas of information technology, cyber security, transportation and other selected infrastructure.

Booz Allen Hamilton’s agency registration in Kuwait follows its recent licensing in Qatar.

Booz Allen Hamilton’s non-compete agreement with Booz & Co. expired in 2011, with respect to the international and commercial business the firm spun off in 2008. Booz Allen Hamilton has since established a MENA regional headquarters office in Abu Dhabi, with staff deployed elsewhere in the region. The firm is marketing a broad spectrum of organization and strategy, program management and other services in support of government and commercial clients across the region.
