Deloitte, the largest global professional services firm in the world, hosted its Middle East annual partners meeting in November 2016 in Dubai in the presence of over 150 partners from the Deloitte Middle East practices who were joined by the Deloitte Global CEO Punit Renjen and other Deloitte network leaders from Europe and the US. Yusuff Ali M.A, Co-founder & Managing Director EMKE Lulu Group, one of the top 250 global retailers worldwide, and Alex Kyriakidis, President and Managing Director of Marriott International, Middle East and Africa, also addressed the partners as guest speakers, offering their personal views on the Middle East marketplace, their sectors and their career journeys.

“This year marks Deloitte’s 90th anniversary in the Middle East with continued presence since 1926. With close to 700 new hires in Fiscal Year 2016 in the region, and the admission of 35 new partners, directors and principals in December this year, Deloitte continues to play an important role in the success and growth of our clients in the private and public sectors in this region”, said Omar Fahoum, Chief Executive Officer of Deloitte Middle East. “As we forge new grounds for the next 90 years, we renew our commitment to serving our clients, people and our communities with the highest standards of skills and deep industry knowledge, making an impact that matters for each and every one of them.”

Punit Renjen spoke to the partners about their role in driving Deloitte’s global strategy, providing consistently high-quality services to clients across the network and enabling exceptional development experiences for Deloitte people.

“The Middle East is a critical part of Deloitte’s network, and its growth reflects the investments we’re making to deliver innovative solutions that help clients succeed not only within this region but around the world,” said Renjen. “Each of the new partners, directors and principals has demonstrated that he or she can be entrusted with building on our legacy by serving clients with quality and distinction, acting as a role model and mentor, and giving back to society.”
