Welcome to Dubai-based Alex Sarac who joins our IPE team and specialises in government energy and infrastructure markets in the GCC & Africa.

Alex's appointment follows that of employment specialist Ben Brown in January, and John Podgore in December, former GC at the MENA Energy Group and a recognised expert in international oil & gas transactions and energy-focused projects.

Andrew Johnston comment:

"The Gulf region remains a key strategic pillar for AG and we are growing fast – both in headcount and new market share. Alex joins us hot on the heels of Ben Brown, and John Podgore. We're delighted the three of them have recognised our bold ambition for the firm here in the GCC and we are thrilled to welcome them on board. We expect further partner hires in the coming months across the region as we look to enhance and grow our full-service capability for our international and local clients."
