About us
Since 1997 Palma Consulting has been providing business and IT consulting services — that is more than a decade filled with significant growth and accomplishments and geographic expansion, in addition to long-term relationships with worldwide leaders such as Horvath & Partners GmbH, IBM, Metasonic and Software AG. Palma Consulting was built as a regional business process management consulting firm that accesses international best practice and localizes it to fit the needs of our clients in the MENA region.
One important mission of Palma Consulting is to build internal capacity to ensure continuous improvement at organizations.
Palma Consulting stems its success from the entrepreneurial vision of its founding partners. Its chairman Mr. Khaled Kilani founded and co-founded over 25 private businesses in the field of technology and business solutions across the Middle East region.
From our consulting roots, we have expanded our service offerings to meet the needs of a changing business world, technological environment and regional marketplace. With 100+ years of combined experience, a solid ever-growing base of intellectual capital and many meaningful business relationships behind us, we are looking forward to an even bigger future.

Khaled Kilani

Chairman of the Board


Khaled is a true entrepreneur. He co-founded Palma Consulting and headed its board in 1997, making it his 25th successful business venture. During his 30+ years working in business systems, he was met with the tremendous gap between the outputs of the education systems in the Arab region and the skills required to empower local businesses. In his various ventures, he identified this gap and worked on closing it through continuous education and training of his teams. He saw a strong need to create methods to improve the education system and bring in best practice to local organizations to bridge the gap from the advanced world; this drove him to establish Palma Consulting.
