The fortified senior team will help government and commercial organizations build strategic roadmaps, implement innovative initiatives, drive adaptability, transformation and resiliency, and support these organizations’ core missions in rapidly changing environments.
Leslie Raimondo joins the MENA leadership team as Senior Vice President, leading the firm’s Healthcare practice based out of Abu Dhabi. Leslie is also an expert in human capital strategy, organizational design, talent management, workforce analytics, and change management.
Previously, Leslie was the firm’s deputy Chief Transformation Officer and led high-priority programs designed to accelerate Booz Allen’s growth strategy. This included initiatives in a wide range of areas, from talent management and leadership development, to enterprise support functions, and change management.
Ziad Moukarzel has also been promoted to Vice President in the firm’s Energy and Environment practice, based out of the Lebanon office.
