Heritage & Organization
Booz & Company is the oldest continually existing management consultancy in the world and we founded the whole profession when we were the first to use the term “management consultant.”
"Fear not the future nor people" — Edwin Booz
The next chapter
Our founder, Edwin Booz, defined the profession when he established the first management consulting business in 1914.
For nearly a century, we have been working closely with clients on their toughest challenges, helping them make the transformations that lead to sustained success. And while that focus remains the same, we are also evolving to keep ahead of global changes.
This year marks the start of a new chapter in our history. As Booz & Company, we are dedicated to creating and delivering the essential advantage our clients need to survive and thrive in a changing world.
Booz & Company’s history in the Middle East is brief, but quite powerful. Since the 1993 launch of its operations in the region with a five-person office, the firm has established an impressive record. Today, more than 500 employees serve the Middle East from six regional offices, inspired by opportunities and economic growth fueled by the liberalization and restructuring of many industries in the area. We have been able to grow new business steadily while retaining our established clients. Booz & Company, with its commitment to top-quality service and investment in talented staff, has earned its reputation as the management consulting firm of choice for companies and governments in the region.
The make-up of our client base continues to evolve as the firm’s presence expands. We serve clients across the region in countries including Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Oman, Qatar, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.
We are enthusiastic about the ongoing growth of the regional economies and the opportunities created by the need to improve corporate and national governance. We feel deeply rewarded by the positive impact our work has had on the lives of people across the Middle East. We are also confident that these factors, combined with our number one positioning in the region, our inherent commitment to quality service, and the dedication of our staff, will ensure the continuing success of Booz & Company’s Middle East business.
Booz & Company has a new name and an expanding client base, but some elements remain unchanged. Edwin Booz’s vision of helping clients solve their toughest problems so they could thrive in an evolving world is as clear today as ever. We are excited about this new chapter in our company’s history and our place in it.
