Under Gill’s directorship, Sweett Group has maintained robust growth over the past 12 months with a more diversified presence across the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
The next 12 months will be a test for the MD as his company seeks to overcome an allegation in the Wall Street Journal of improper business conduct in Morocco by an employee alleged to have asked for payment to win a contract. The report caused shares to fall almost 10%.
Gill’s is known for his stance on delivering “independent, impartial advice of the highest quality” and Sweett Group has a number of key clients across the public and private sectors, including the Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation, Etihad Airways, Dubai Airports and Abu Dhabi-based Al Badie Group, with more than 70% of the consultancy’s commissions resulting out of repeat business.
Sweett Group plc has reached a record order book of over £100 million for the 2013-14 fiscal year.
