Pablo Martinez takes over from Joerg Hildebrandt to head the regional operations
Boston Consulting Group (BCG) has named Pablo Martinez to head its Middle East operations effective May 2022.
Martinez will lead almost 800 employees from 76 nationalities across four offices located in: Riyadh, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Doha, making this region one of the firm’s most diverse systems. The firm has seen strong growth in the region, driven by increased demand for digital transformation.
Martinez is a global citizen who has worked with clients all over the Middle East and Europe. In 2002, he joined BCG in Iberia, where he supported the development of the firm’s European consumer and airline clients. Nine years ago, he transferred to the Middle East to launch its consumer practice, focused on travel and tourism. Martinez has since built a strong practice with an excellent team and leading clients in the public and private sectors across UAE, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar.
“Pablo’s expertise in the region across the supply chain is inherent to stimulating that change from an end-to-end approach,” asserted Matthias Tauber, Regional Chair Europe, Middle East, South America & Africa, BCG commenting on Martinez’s appointment.
“Opening a new chapter of leading BCG Middle East is a very exciting step and I look forward to driving BCG’s agenda in the region. I am committed to our people and clients and hope to shape the future of BCG Middle East in a fulfilling and sustainable way,” said Martinez.
Martinez will be taking over the role from Joerg Hildebrandt, who had led the system since 2011.
