“We had the pleasure of working with Dr. David Pistrui on the Pre-IPO placement of the Nass Corporation BSC, the first conglomerate family business to go public in the Kingdom of Bahrain. Dr. Pistrui’s role as lead governance advisor has contributed significantly to the successful execution of the transition. He worked as part of an international advisory team made up of well renowned names from a variety of industries. Acumen Dynamics was able to provide continuous feedback in relation to the overall governance structure that was put in place. Thanks to Dr. Pistrui, we now have a ‘role model’ framework that can be used as a benchmark. We believe that this ongoing relationship will continue to be implemented for years to come."
