Based in London, Amir is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales and holds an Economics Degree from the London School of Economics. Working up to Manager level at PwC London, Amir thereafter held several senior finance roles at oilfield services companies in the UK and internationally.
