Regional management consulting firm Maven Insights has strengthened its partner team with Khalid Alkhudairi.
Freshly appointed Khalid Alkhudairi has been brought on board by Maven Insights as part of its ambition to grow its presence in the Saudi market. Just last month, Maven Insights launched an office in Riyadh, its second alongside Dubai.
Alkhudairi has 17 years of experience across the private and public sectors, holding high-ranking positions at companies such as Volkswagen and Al Faisaliah, and government institutes including the National Housing Company and the National Center for Privatization.
His expertise spans areas such as business strategy, organisation restructuring, operating model design, performance improvement, and change management.
At Maven Insights, Alkhudairi partners with boards and senior management to assess opportunities for improvement and growth, facilitate strategic decisions, and implement initiatives and programs.
“We are honoured that Khalid has joined our team. His exceptional reputation precedes him; over the years he’s proven himself as a strong leader with a deep understanding of and experience in dealing with people- and performance-related challenges in public and private entities,” said Alper Kulak, Founder and Senior Partner at Maven Insights.
Kulak continued: “Khalid’s arrival is momentous for Maven Insights and it asserts our intention of investing in our future in the Gulf market, particularly in Saudi Arabia, to fortify our client relationships.”
Commenting on his new challenge, Alkhudairi stated: “I am excited to join Maven Insights at such an exciting time for the Saudi consulting market as we see lots of growth opportunities. Government and private sectors are looking out for growth and sustainability. These are all opportunities for Maven Insights to leverage and respond to clients’ needs, and to support them in achieving desired results.”
Alongside his role at Maven Insights, Alkhudairi is a board member of various organisations in Saudi Arabia, and a serial angel investor in multiple tech start-ups in the MENA and Asia regions.
Established in 2010, Maven Insights is an award-winning management consulting firm. The firm is particularly renowned for its work in commercial transformation and cultural change.
