Transworld Business Advisors is extending its reach to the Middle East, with plans to serve the entire region of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) from Dubai.
The expansion connects the company’s existing European and Asian networks for greater coverage worldwide and offers business advisory services, franchise consulting, and mergers and acquisitions expertise to the region.
International developer and entrepreneur, Ahmad Ibrahim (left), serves as the master franchisor for the region as well as the president of Transworld UAE. An experienced entrepreneur and investor, Ahmad has spearheaded $40bn worth of projects in the Middle East. He is joined by Rahim Rahimov (right), an expert in start-up operations and sales processes, who brings a wealth of experience from various established and start-up businesses as well as his work on government contracts worth $30m annually.
Rahim, who is also the COO of Transworld UAE, said: “We’re excited about the chance to play a part in the region’s economic growth. There is such a need for experienced business advisors to facilitate growth via mergers and acquisitions, and we believe we can make a real difference in the UAE’s economic future.”
Ahmad and Rahim have invested in the Middle East expansion of Transworld Business Advisors after recognizing the region’s growth as a global investment hub and its relative lack of business consulting services.
“At Transworld UAE, we see incredible potential in this region to positively change the landscape of the business consulting market and use our expertise to advise entrepreneurs on evaluating business opportunities and owners on how to maximize their profits when selling their business,” Ahmad said.
Transworld Business Advisors is part of the United Franchise Group (UFG) family of affiliated brands, giving its clients access to a network of global franchises.
“Entering the Middle East is an exciting step for us as we continue to deepen our presence and expand Transworld Business Advisors globally,” said Bill Luce, president of Transworld Business Advisors. “It’s a huge opportunity to bring our experience and expertise to an emerging market that’s on the verge of great success.”
The Dubai office will operate with four to six staff in its first year, with plans to grow in its second year and beyond. In the introductory phase, partners from Transworld Business Advisors UFG will work to establish relationships with lenders, partners, and leaders of key organizations guiding Transworld UAE as it takes the first steps in establishing a much larger footprint in the Middle East.
