Hassan Morsy

Introduction

Hassan has lived in three different continents in the last 15 years, and currently calls Dubai, UAE home. He has hands on execution experience, leading more than a dozen successful $500m+ asset turn-arounds, and numerous CDDs/Diagnostics/Capital project assessments. Consultant to many Global 500 companies and government entities, advised C-level executives on business strategy, rapid operational improvement, cost reduction, and leading edge procurement/supply chain enhancements. Hassan has been with Partners in Performance for more than 10 years, but before that Hassan had a diverse business and technical working experience including: business lead in a renewable energy startup, and a simulation researcher for earthquake engineering.

His sleeves are usually rolled up whether he’s helping out a client, or under his car doing the last bit of tuning before hitting the track. While there’s still quite some dispute whether he’s as good a driver as he claims, there’s no doubt that he is a real petrol head.
