Monstarlab to establish a strategic base in Riyadh

Monstarlab has announced that it will establish a strategic base in Riyadh, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). This move will enable Monstarlab to further expand in the region, accelerate digital transformation and the development of tech-talent in line with the goals of Saudi Vision 2030. Through the Riyadh base, Monstarlab will support diversification within the public and private sector in Saudi Arabia, focusing on customer-centric design and experiences. The KSA office will be the latest strategic addition to Monstarlab’s growing footprint, which forms part of the company’s overall commitment and investments in the Middle East and North Africa region.

Hiroki Inagawa, Monstarlab’s Group Chief Executive Officer said: “Saudi Arabia is an exciting market that has invested heavily in digitalisation and the development of people and talent. We have been working with clients in the Kingdom for some time, including a new company within the Public Investment Fund, and we see tremendous opportunities for further growth. We build digital experiences that enable technology to amplify a positive impact on customers, and we believe we can bring significant benefits to the Saudi market. Through our new strategic base, we will be working with organisations in the country to make a difference within society through local capability development, in line with the country’s long-term strategy.”

Adam Alalwan, Monstarlab’s Engagement Director, based in KSA, added: “Our goal will be to bring Monstarlab’s global experience and expertise to Saudi Arabia and unlock value for our customers. With a large portion of the nation’s population under the age of 35, we aim to promote the local digital and technology communities. Through using state-of-the-art technology, we will be helping to support the advancement of a new generation of tech-savvy talent that will drive future development within the country. Our people-focused approach to business is one of our key differentiators – we are looking forward to instilling this ethos into our new base in Saudi Arabia to provide unrivalled learning opportunities for local talent in the field of technology. Our focus will be on working within key sectors including tourism and hospitality, finance and government, healthcare and others to make a positive contribution to the country’s growing economy”.

Monstarlab recently announced that it acquired ecap, a Middle East-based executive search and human capital advisory business that facilitates the identification and development of talent from the ground up. This was one of a series of milestones signifying Monstarlab’s continued expansion and commitment to the Middle East region.
