Horton International Expands In The Middle East
Global executive search firm Horton International has announced the opening of two new offices in the Middle East.
An office has opened in Bahrain, and the second will open in Saudi Arabia later this year.
The opening of the new offices forms the first step in the planned expansion of Horton Group International (HGIL) across the Gulf Corporation Council (GCC). The GCC represents the six Arab countries of Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman and Kuwait.
The Bahrain office is headed by Managing Partners Hazem Al Sheikh Mubarak and Maneesh Ajmani.
Mr Ajmani has over 18 years’ experience working across North America, Europe, Middle East and Asia. He has worked with companies in a variety of industries and has spent over 10 years in the Gulf Corporation Council. Most recently, as the head of private equity at Gulf International Bank, Mr Ajmani managed an investment portfolio spread across energy, industrial manufacturing, building materials, retail and transportation.
Mr Mubarak has over 17 years’ experience with blue chip regional institutions and relationships with business leaders and C level executives in corporations across the Gulf Corporation Council. Prior to his current role, he was the CEO of GIB Housing Developers Fund, head of asset management of GIB Capital and the chief operating officer at MAALEM Holding.
Mr Mubarak said: “Through our ‘on-the-ground’ presence and extensive network with candidates and clients across the GCC, we provide unrivaled access to high performing senior executives in the GCC”.
Mr Ajmani commented: “The team’s past experience in recruiting senior management roles within the region plus the access to Horton International’s global relationships will enable us to deliver exceptional value to our clients in the region. It will also provide clients access to contacts and industry expertise from around the world.”
Ross Eades, CEO of Horton Group International Limited, said: “The Middle East is an important region for the expansion of the Group. Our knowledge, experience and the network of contacts we have built on international markets over the years can contribute significant added value for clients of Horton International across the Middle East. We are delighted to have new Managing Partners on board and look forward to further developing the region.”
