challenges of implementing corporate governance and generational change
required in family business, not just through identifying the right
management talent but also in providing invaluable advice and insight based

“Organisations in Saudi Arabia are becoming increasingly competitive and
require top-notch professionals in their leadership teams. The opening of
our office in Riyadh and appointment of Ewan, who is recognised as one of
the top professionals in the Executive Search industry in the Middle East,
will give us a better understanding of clients’ needs in the country, as

recruitment of senior management,” - commented Michael Al-Nassir, Partner
