Deloitte Middle East names Mutasem Dajani as Chief Executive Officer
Deloitte has named Mutasem Dajani as the next Chief Executive Officer of Deloitte Middle East (DME).
Dajani has been with the firm since 2002 and in recent years, has held the role of DME Audit & Assurance leader and regional Managing Partner of the UAE practice. Dajani has previously assumed a wide range of firm leadership roles, such as member of the Middle East Board of Directors and Executive Committee. Dajani succeeds Omar Fahoum who led DME during the past 20 years.
Dajani said: “I am honoured to be leading an organisation of more than 5,000 people across 14 countries. As the world adapts to the new normal and addresses the challenges imposed by COVID-19, our focus continues to be the well-being of our people and making an impact that matters with our clients and wider society. With close to 100 years’ experience in the Middle East, our understanding of this unique market is unparalleled. With the strength of our Middle East capabilities, multidisciplinary teams and extensive global network, we are uniquely positioned to support our clients in the face of these unprecedented challenges and to help them thrive.”
DME combines a breadth and depth of capabilities in audit and assurance, consulting, financial advisory, risk advisory, and tax across the region. In addition, a Deloitte Digital Center launched last September in Riyadh will provide employment and skills building opportunities for the leading talent in Saudi Arabia and across the GCC.
