DUBAI, April 29, 2019

Frost & Sullivan, a research and consulting firm, has appointed Sarwant Singh as its regional leader for Middle East and Africa (MEA) and South Asia region.

He will assume this responsibility in addition to his current role as the company’s global head of the mobility, aerospace, defence and security practice, said a statement from Frost & Sullivan.

Singh brings with him over two decades of experience in strategic consulting and advisory to Fortune 1000 companies, public sector enterprises and multilateral organisations in the mobility and advanced technologies sectors.

Singh’s forte lies in corporate strategy, R&D, product planning, market intelligence, mergers and acquisitions, public policy planning, and corporate venturing.

His counsel has been sought by the Prime Minister’s Office in the UK, international organisations, leading global automotive manufacturers, private equity firms, and investment banks.

A former member of the World Economic Group’s Automotive & Transport Council, he is now on the Advisory Board of Nissan, Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI) and Leeds University Business School.

Aroop Zutshi, global president and managing partner, Frost & Sullivan, said: “Our board is pleased to appoint Singh as the regional leader for MEA and South Asia. This region has been a vital contributor to the company’s growth and successful performance.”

“His appointment reflects our commitment to continue driving profitable growth across all our business units, augmenting our research and consulting expertise, and strengthening our value proposition across the region,” he added.

Speaking on his appointment, Singh said: “Our organisation has fired on the twin engines of growth and innovation to successfully navigate the challenges presented by digital and technology-driven disruption.”

“I look forward to being a part of our transformative journey in Measa (Middle East, Africa and South Asia) region, strengthening our imprint of growth and innovation and fostering deeper, more meaningful engagements with our clients across the region,” he added.

A prolific writer, his book, “New Mega Trends,” is a best seller in 30 countries. His forthcoming projects include two more thought leadership pieces on the mega trends that will shape economic, political, social and cultural dynamics in South Asia and the Middle East.

He is also a regular contributor to several leading publications and is a columnist on Forbes.com.-TradeArabia News Service
