MESA, a leading strategy consultant, change management, and investment advisory firm in the GCC region, announced that it has recently joined OC&C Strategy Consultants, an international partner group excelling in the provision of strategy advisory services, as a member-firm. The move comes as both firms seek to leverage synergy from combining MESA’s local network and regional experience with OC&C’s global resources and intellectual capital. OC&C delivers sustainable growth strategies, strategy revaluation and market intelligence for many of the world’s largest and most successful companies.
This partnership between MESA and OC&C will leverage strong industry sector synergies as both companies work towards complementary strategic goals and a common vision. MESA’s clients are demanding global support for their activities, while OC&C is seeking to tap into the flourishing Middle East management consultancy market. As a prelude to the partnership, MESA and OC&C have been working together on several joint projects.
As per the agreement, MESA will be able to expand its human capital development programmes to include OC&C’s international training events and internship opportunities at OC&C offices around the globe.
Glen Osmond, MESA Managing Partner, said, “The selection of MESA as a regional partner by a prestigious international firm of OC&C’s calibre is a reaffirmation of our commitment to developing context-specific expertise and excelling in cross-sectoral applications. MESA has achieved a growth of over 50 per cent annually for the past three years and is now well-positioned to expand its technical capabilities even further.”
Michael Jary, Managing Director, OC&C International said, “I would like to welcome MESA as a member-firm to the OC&C global network. The MESA team’s expertise and competence, their track record with leading organisations within the GCC, and their shared high standards for delivering results have been commendable.”
MESA was established by leading international consultants in order to provide regionally adapted solutions in strategy consulting, change management and investment advisory. MESA specialises in corporate restructuring and developing new business strategies. During the past three years, MESA has conducted over 15 restructuring operations and created tangible improvements of over US$ 2 billion [calculated as the Present Value (PV) of a 5 year period of implemented initiatives].
OC&C is a leading international consulting firm as ranked by the Financial Times. The company was founded in 1987 by partners from leading advisory firms such as Bain & Co, Booz Allen Hamilton and McKinsey & Co. OC&C’s strong focus on results is a primary reason that OC&C is a global leader in advising private equity firms.
