Point 62 Consulting

Point 62 Consulting was established in December 2004, in Erbil, Iraqi Kurdistan, to support the reconstruction, development and growth of the Kurdistan Region in the post-Saddam era. The objective of the company is to assist in harnessing the great wealth of personal and natural resources of Iraqi Kurdistan, and provide advice and assistance in utilizing those resources to move the Region toward a secure, growing and vibrant future.

The company provides consulting advisory support to the Kurdistan Regional Government across a spectrum of activities (mainly security), as well as provides consulting services to a variety of international and local companies. The purpose of the latter activity is to identify appropriate project work for those client companies, provide advice on the development and execution of that work, and provide guidance toward the successful completion of the work. Additionally, Point 62 provides security advice, general Kurdistan political advice, and market entry advice for companies desiring to, or already working in Iraqi Kurdistan
