Consulting magazine recognizes Protiviti leader of Middle East and India regions with Excellence in Influence award

MENLO PARK, Calif., November 7, 2019 – Sanjeev Agarwal, the Protiviti Country Market Leader for member firms in the Middle East and India, has been named to Consulting magazine’s 2019 ‘Global Leaders in Consulting’ list. The award recognizes leaders who are making an impact in the profession that can be felt worldwide. Agarwal, who has played a critical role in the expansion of global consulting firm Protiviti’s presence in the Middle East and India, is recognized with an Excellence in Influence award.

Agarwal was a core member of the team that was instrumental in establishing Protiviti’s presence in Kuwait in 2007. During the following six years, consulting operations expanded to another five countries in the Middle East (Bahrain, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and UAE), which resulted in increased revenue, client base and consulting staff in the region. In 2014, Agarwal became head of operations in India where, under his leadership, services were expanded into six major cities. He has also established intelligent automation capabilities in India, focusing on the delivery of robotic process automation (RPA), data analytics and management and artificial intelligence solutions for Protiviti’s clients around the globe. With further expansion into Cairo, Egypt, Agarwal now oversees the growth, innovation and client service in eight countries from his home base in Kuwait City, Kuwait.

“Sanjeev has created a unique culture across operations in the Middle East and India, which emphasizes the values of integrity, inclusion and innovation that are core to Protiviti,” said Joseph Tarantino, Protiviti president and CEO. “This culture ensures that his teams deliver exceptional client service, experience and value to our global clients. Consulting magazine’s recognition for his outstanding efforts is very well-deserved.”

The 2019 Global Leaders in Consulting honorees will be celebrated at an awards dinner on December 5 in London, U.K. Profiles of the winners will be published in the January 2020 edition of Consulting magazine.

Previous Protiviti recipients of the Global Leaders in Consulting award are Executive Vice President Andrew Clinton (2018) and Managing Director Philip Fretwell (2017). Protiviti was also recognized recently as one of Consulting magazine’s 2019 Best Firms to Work For.
