In the role, Hasan Muzaffar oversees a team of 1,200+ consultants and staff across the firm’s offices in the Middle East (Bahrain, Egypt, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates), as well as Egypt in North Africa and Pakistan in Asia.
One of the world’s most prestigious management consulting firms, McKinsey & Company has been active in the region since 1957.
