Hakluyt opens new office in Dubai August 2021
Hakluyt is delighted to announce that it has opened a new office in Dubai.
The office will be led by Christopher Napoli, who has been with Hakluyt since 2019. He previously worked for Oliver Wyman in Dubai, and before that was an academic economist at the Centre for European Policy Studies in Brussels and at the University of Nottingham.
Varun Chandra, Hakluyt’s managing partner, said: “The Gulf has become an increasingly important market for Hakluyt, and I’m very pleased that Chris Napoli, an excellent and highly respected colleague, is opening our new office in Dubai. It’s clear that there are many opportunities for us as a leading strategic advisory firm in the region, and I’m sure we’ll have a lot of success serving clients from our new base there.”
Thomas Ellis, who leads Hakluyt’s business in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), added: “We already serve several major clients in the Middle East, and growing our business in the region is a priority for us. Establishing an office in Dubai is therefore an important step for Hakluyt, and the whole team is excited to be supporting Chris in our work there.”
Christopher Napoli commented: “I am delighted to be opening Hakluyt’s newest office in Dubai. There are many outstanding businesses in the region, and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work with them.”
