Continuing with its expansion activity in the Maghreb region, global management consultancy Boston Consulting Group has appointed Othman Omary as a partner and managing director in its Casablanca office. Omary is the fourth partner of the firm’s regional office.

Omary holds a degree from HEC Paris, an international business school with prestigious MBA and EMBA programmes. Professionally, Omary has worked at global management consultancy A.T. Kearney for nearly a decade between 2004 and 2014. During his time at the rival consulting firm, he eventually ascended to the position of Principal. 

At A.T. Kearney, his work was centred on the financial services domain, and he worked in the European division with some of the continent’s largest financial institutions. He has been at BCG since he left A.T. Kearney, and has worked with a number of high profile projects in its African practice.

BCG appoints Othman Omary as new Managing Director to Casablanca office

His clients have primarily been situated in Africa, although he has worked at an international level as well. During his time at BCG, he has worked on projects in the strategy and transformation domains, primarily in the banking and insurance domain.

His experience with transformation projects is particularly relevant in the current African context, given that the continent is undergoing a period of rapid digitalisation. An increasing number of firms are looking for support with digital transformations to remain relevant and competitive in the contemporary market.

In the role of partner at BCG Casablanca, he will work with a number of other senior partners and consultants to help BCG tap into in this new wave of demand for digital and transformation services. The financial services sector, which is Omary’s area of expertise, is particularly hard hit by digitalisation.

Omary joins four other partners (internally they have the rank of managing director) at BCG Casablanca, including Lisa Ivers ,who has been leading the local country organisation since last year.

Early last year, BCG Casablanca appointed Hamid Maher as managing director.
