The addition of Public Policy to our advisory services will further strengthen our capabilities and create value for our clients," said Samantha Bartel, MENA CEO and Managing Partner at Instinctif Partners. "In the two weeks he's been with us, Alexander has already grown our client-base and is advising clients on and at COP28."

"It's a pleasure to join Instinctif Partners to build, scale, and lead the Public Policy practice in MENA." Alexander noted. "The team in and beyond MENA has been exceptionally welcoming. It's a privilege to be asked to set up an entirely new business segment in the region, and I'm excited to take up this new challenge. In my view, this is the right time to do so, and a terrific opportunity to contribute to the great success Instinctif Partners has had in the MENA region under the leadership of Samantha."  

"It's an important and strategic step for Instinctif Partners to roll out the longstanding and thriving Public Policy practice in Africa and Europe across the booming MENA region," said Ed Amory, CEO of Instinctif Partners.
