Family Groups have diverse multiple subsidiaries in various locations, employ thousands of employees and are incredibly diversified in the types of products and services they offer.
Family holding groups are among the most prominent organisations across the Middle East. Their presence has grown significantly over the past three decades, particularly in Saudi Arabia and the UAE. Family groups have diverse multiple subsidiaries in various locations. They account for a significant level of employment across the region that's estimated to be in the millions. They are incredibly diversified in the types of products and services they offer. The uniqueness and dynamics of Family Groups require both a global and regional reach in the market as well as an acute understanding of the cultural fit and Middle Eastern acumen when appointing Senior Executives.
We at Cooper Fitch believe that the family group business model will change significantly over the next five to ten years as they develop stronger shared services models, possibly reducing the variety of products and services they offer, focusing on core competencies and some preparing for possible IPO on the local or international markets.
Our expertise includes automotive, construction, real estate, facility management, food and beverages, retail, technology, and healthcare.
