Regester Larkin hires former UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office energy adviser to head Middle East office
Regester Larkin has announced that Rob Sherwin will join as managing director of the consultancy’s Middle East office in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). He will lead a range of client projects across the Middle East and look to expand the consultancy’s growing client base.
Rob joins from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), where he was Middle East Energy Adviser. For the past two years, working together with many Whitehall departments, he has engaged with Middle East governments on the dual challenges of energy security and climate change.
Prior to that, Rob worked for Shell for 10 years, latterly in the business development function in the Middle East, based in the UAE.
Andrew Griffin, Regester Larkin Managing Director, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Rob to Regester Larkin. He is an excellent new addition to the team; his extensive regional knowledge and insights gained from numerous direct conversations with key Middle East decision-makers about issues of concern to them, will offer a unique proposition to advice on the reputation management challenges faced by clients in the region.”
Rob Sherwin said: “With more and more international companies entering Middle East markets, and the region’s own companies operating and investing further from home, this is a very exciting time to be working with clients as they manage their reputation.”
