Keith Harrison first joined SBA in 2004 as the financial services practice leader. Keith partnered on SBA’s engagement to develop strategic roadmap, financial models and operating plans for the Polo Ralph Lauren business in Asia. Keith also worked on projects with private equity clients to model new business initiatives developed by SBA for consideration in conjunction with potential acquisitions.

 

Prior to SBA, Keith spent 15 years with the world’s leading travel retailer, DFS Group Limited, an LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton majority-owned subsidiary.

 

Keith held senior finance roles of increasing responsibility within DFS, starting in 1989 regional CFO roles, in the UK Region based in London, then for the Singapore Region and finally for the Asia Group based in Hong Kong in 1997. Keith was promoted to DFS Group Worldwide CFO in 1999 located in San Francisco. In his expanding roles, Keith was a key partner in the business development of each region, including opportunities in Indonesia, Korea, China, Okinawa, Japan and the LVMH acquisition of the Miami Cruiseline Company, an onboard retail business covering 70% of the world’s cruise fleet. Keith also evaluated potential business acquisitions in Europe, Middle East, North and South America, and played a major role in the Group’s recovery and restructuring strategies after the Asian crisis of 1998 and the September 2001 terrorist attacks in the US, both events having a materially adverse impact on travel retail. The company returned to profitability as a result of the successful implementation of these strategic initiatives.

 

In late 2005 Keith joined MCM, a leading Luxury goods retailer, to develop and implement a worldwide re-launch strategy including entry to the duty free markets.

 

Most recently, Keith has been CFO of the Fawaz Alhokair Retail Fashion Group based in Saudi Arabia, the leading fashion group in KSA, with operations also in Dubai/Egypt/Lebanon/Jordan.
