Kearney is fine, in NA is super strong so not feeling like we’re getting destroyed.

Also i don’t know too much about this partner that got fired, but ME culture is notoriously one of the worst. If he was going to be head of ME or had such a large role, i could believe that person contributed to the bad culture. Likely the right move (at least with the limited context i have)

The reason this guy brings business is structural. He and his gang control Kearney’s access to the KSA procurement portal. This means that any RFP by KSA government clients are received by him and he decides if he shares with people outside his gang. Obviously he keeps the majority of the incoming RFPs, creating the impression that he is a rainmaker, when in reality he just took control of the main source of potential projects in the largest country in ME.

This all sounds quite typical of consulting in the region. See for example FT's recent columns on the problems with KPMG in UAE.

OP: You seem to be in favor of the person who got fired, you’re not doing him a favor by posting this, now the whole ME consulting market knows the situation, this doesn’t help finding a new place for him, in the best case it only hurts his negotiation position, but still not good

like

OP , you say the person was wronged. If that is true and K is such a terrible place, why don’t you join him in his new venture ? It would be better than spewing hateful statements.

K then c4 what happened?

It’s a big loss to Kearney after what that person built over 7 years at the firm and now it became an issue why ? Because he was a candidate to lead the ME office
This person was a major contributor for Kearney growth in Middle East and helped make the firm top 3 in region

Can anyone shed the light on the partner's name? Is it A.N?

It is funny how senior leadership conducted a call today (multiple partners throwing balls to each other) to explain what happened. The bottomline of the message reminded me of my days as a BA who needs to develop a deck but has zero content. How long are we gonna stay at the surface with such general messages?

I am surprised that Kearney would take him out like this. Isn’t there a major risk that he now just tries to move his book of business to a different firm and hurt Kearney ME?

So some time has passed and everything is clear now. K is going down for it’s unethical and political behavior and the individual concerned came out on top and more to come.
