Strategy& have promoted Marwan Beijani and Frederick Ozeir to Partner in the Middle East. Beijani and Ozeir represent two out of thirteen promotions that the PwC network has announced simultaneously in the region, as the firm bids to meet expanding demand in the Middle East.

Marwan Bejjani has been a member of Strategy&’s Engineered Products and Services practice since it was formed in 2014, and was previously a Principal at Booz & Company (predecessor firm to Strategy&) since 2009. Prior to that, Bejjani was an Airport Planner at Dar Al Handasah for five years and had a brief stint as an Associate at Goldman Sachs in 2008.

As a specialist in aviation, infrastructure and construction, Bejjani has conducted extensive client work for Strategy&, as well as authored two reports: one on the benefits of collaboration between airports and airlines and the other on cost-efficient construction as the foundation for success.

A Master in Transportation Engineering, having obtained a post-graduate degree from the University of California at Berkeley, Bejjani also holds an MBA from Stanford University and a Bachelor’s in Engineering from the American University of Beirut.

Frederick Ozeir, on the other hand, is a member of the firm’s Energy, Chemicals and Utilities practice. He specialises in corporate strategy as well as mergers and acquisitions, and has authored reports on Global Petrochemicals disruptions and Capital Projects in the MENA Energy Industry.

Ozeir joined Booz & Company in 2005, remaining with them through the transition to Strategy& after PwC acquired the consultancy. He holds a Master’s degree in management from HEC Graduate School of Management in Paris and a Bachelor’s in Economics from Saint Joseph University.

The promotions of Bejjani and Ozeir to Partner come amongst a wave of other promotions carried out by the PwC network in the Middle East, bringing the tally of Partners in the region up to 220. Strategy& has an established foothold in the region, leveraging the position it already had under its Booz & Company era prior to acquisition, operating from its offices in Beirut, Cairo, Doha, Dubai and two in Riyadh, as the Middle Eastern market continues to attract major investment from the consulting industry.

In light of these developments, Senior Partner of PwC Middle East stated: “I am delighted to welcome the new Partners on board; together, they reflect a new wave of dedication and commitment to delivering above and beyond results that will help us ensure continued success for our clients, our business and the wider Middle East economy.”

Last month Strategy& also promoted two Partners in the Netherlands (Lucas Prat Bertrams and Marc Hoogenberg) while earlier this year Fernand Dimidschstein was appointed a Partner in Belgium – he has been tasked with leading the firm's market entry in the Belgian strategy consulting market.
