Serco clinches two key Saudi deals
Manama, November 11, 2012
International service company Serco has won two "significant" consultancy contracts in Saudi Arabia.
The contracts - with the Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu and ELM (Al-Elm Co) -- will be serviced from its recently opened new consulting offices in Bahrain, a statement said.
Serco Consulting offers a range of management and operations consulting services across the financial services, telecommunications, utilities and public sector markets.
Vivian Jamal, director of business development, at the Bahrain Economic Development Board (EDB), said: “We are delighted at the success that Serco has achieved following its decision to establish a consulting presence in Bahrain, reflecting the kingdom’s suitability as a destination for international consultancies looking to access the trillion dollar Gulf market.”
David Beresford, managing director of Serco’s consulting business, said: “Our presence in Manama continues Serco’s long association with Bahrain and further strengthens our commitment to the region.”
Serco’s Manama office director and consulting regional leader, Damon Dermody, said: “The combination of well developed financial services and business process outsourcing markets, as well as the geographic proximity to Saudi Arabia, means we are placed to serve our clients from Manama.” - TradeArabia News Service
