Khan joined Lexica from engineering advisory firm Arcadis, where he was a Senior Director for the Programme Management service line and the lead for the healthcare practice in the Middle East. During his seven years in Doha, Khan worked with several healthcare providers in the region, including HMC (the national provider of secondary care services) in Qatar over a number of years – including as the Programme Director for the delivery of the Medical City Hospitals developments.

Earlier in his career, Khan spent eight years with EC Harris, and six years with RKW Healthcare Strategists, a boutique consulting firm dedicated to the healthcare sector, among others.

“I am excited by the capability that Yasser brings to Lexica, including his extensive experience of working with NHS organisations developing business cases and estates planning, as this builds on the growing depth and breadth of the Programme Management team,” said Adam Trigg, a Director at Lexica.

Lexica will also leverage Khan’s international experience to grow its presence in international markets. “There is a strong sense of a values driven culture here at Lexica, as well as a palpable commitment to excellence. These qualities, combined with an ambitious growth agenda, both locally and internationally, point to a business that is well set up for continued success,” said Khan.

Lexica’s Managing Director, Tina Nolan, said: “Having worked together previously, we are confident that we will be able to rapidly deploy his considerable expertise to support our valued client base.”

Khan becomes Lexica’s thirteenth director. Born out of the NHS in 2014, as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust, Lexica operated as ETL until June this year. The specialist consulting firm has over 100 staff.
