Khalid Murgian joins the company from Goldman Sachs Asset Management where he was head of MENA and New Markets. Based in the new office, which is scheduled to open in the coming months, he will report to Dik van Lomwel, managing director and head of EMEA and Latin America.
Neuberger Berman said Murgian will be responsible for leading and developing the company’s business effort in the MENA region and will work closely with Bruce Crystal, who is based in the US but has worked in the region for more than 16 years.
“This is a significant milestone for Neuberger Berman. Our objective is to be close to our clients and the office opening reflects our commitment to a very important region for us,” said van Lomwel. “Khalid brings a wealth of local experience to the firm and we look forward to working with him as we strengthen our local presence.”
