Booz Allen Hamilton Enters Kuwait To Enhance Technology And Cyber Defense Capabilities

Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH) announced today it has been registered by the Kuwait Ministry of Commerce and Industry, via an in-country agent, to pursue business opportunities and support the country’s social and economic development strategies.

The firm will provide specialist services to government and commercial clients on critical issues related to economic development in the areas of information technology, cyber security, transportation and other selected infrastructure.

Booz Allen Hamilton brings nearly 100 years of global experience to Kuwait to support economic diversification, foreign direct investment (FDI) and job creation. The firm will offer expertise in capability building to strengthen necessary skills and institution building to help existing organizations mature and prosper. Booz Allen Hamilton will focus on providing Kuwaiti organizations specific and extensive expertise in key sectors, including energy, financial services, healthcare, mobile technologies and core infrastructure. In addition, the firm will guide government, civil, defense and security clients in the development of their technological capabilities with an emphasis on sustainable economic growth.

“Kuwait is taking significant steps toward establishing itself a regional center of excellence in the areas of energy, finance and trade. Additionally, the government is supporting infrastructure projects and social programs designed to drive new FDI into the country and streamline global trade,” said Senior Vice President Don Pressley, who leads the firm’s MENA operations. “To support these ambitions, Booz Allen Hamilton recognizes that robust ICT capacities and Security expertise will play a key role in creating an environment that is primed for growth, sustainability and stability. Our strategic approach will be tailored to these specific needs and supported by our global expertise.”

Booz Allen Hamilton’s agency registration in Kuwait follows its recent licensing in Qatar, and represents another accomplishment in its strategy to engage in the Middle East as a full partner in the integrated growth and development of the region. The firm will continue to expand its government and commercial consulting business in the Middle East and North Africa.
