#44 Faithful + Gould
Faithful+Gould in the Middle East has achieved a compound annual growth (CAGR) of more than 20 percent over the past three years and this is only expected to increase as the project and programme management consultancy continues to support the development of its key clients such as Majid Al Futtaim, Emaar, Meraas and Miral.
Working on some of the regions most prestigious projects, from King Abdulaziz International Airport in Saudi Arabia, to Doha Oasis in Qatar and Dubai Creek Harbour in Dubai, the consultancy has expanded its workforce to 500 in the Middle East. With the belief that a long term career is viable in this region, F+G has put a number of initiatives in place to retain and progress its staff; its Management Development Programme was formulated in 2014 with the aim of harnessing and developing talent and its Womens Business Network was put in place to improve gender diversity in its workforce and enable more women to attain senior-level positions in the company.
The firm places a lot of value on technology and innovation and after cementing a market leading partnership with Oracle, a multi-national IT company, back in 2014, Faithful+Gould has been pioneering an enhanced service solution to offer clients better results.
Campbell Gray, Middle East Managing Director, said: Our country-led management strategy stimulated growth in 2015 in terms of profits and targets. As a business we decided to focus on doing less, but doing it better, allowing us to concentrate on our key clients. The Middle East is currently a challenging market but with the right projects and the right people on board Faithful+Gould is positioned for growth.
