Metin Mitchell is the Founder and Managing Partner of Metin Mitchell & Company, a UAE-based executive search and HR management advisory firm established in 2011.

Previously, Metin spent 19 years with US executive search firm Korn/Ferry International, where he held several positions including Managing Vice President of the European E-Business Practice, Managing Director for France and Managing Director for the MENA region.

Backed with 25 years’ experience, Metin has a passion for the recruitment of Board Members, Chief Executives and leadership teams that transform businesses and organisations across the Middle East. He has been closely associated with the MENA region since 1995 and his client portfolio comprises some of the region’s leading financial institutions, family businesses and conglomerates.

While his company caters for the greater MENA region, Metin has a special interest and focus on nationalization initiatives in the GCC and is a strong advocate of women in leadership. The firm recruits locally and internationally, serving clients in the Middle East and North Africa and in other developing markets with young and aspirational populations. There is a particular focus on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, recruiting skills to achieve Vision 2030 and helping to achieve Feminization goals for the country.
