Feisal Nahaboo

Founder of OMMG, Xeinadin, Alitam, Merios

Feisal Nahaboo, widely feted as a business phenomenon having launched several game-changing businesses, including in the accountancy and pharmacy sectors, with more in the pipeline. His overnight multiple merger model, hailed as a ‘corporate miracle’, was dreamt up in his bedroom and executed with a team of just three trusted advisers. Feisal is a highly sought-after speaker on the international circuit, where he inspires successive generations on industry disruption and the brave new world of business.

The man behind the miracle

Getting to know Alitam Founder Feisal Nahaboo.

Feisal was born to do things differently. Growing up on a council estate in Bracknell, there was never any doubt in his mind that he’d transform something, someday. “I was always looking at things in a different way to everyone else,” he says. “I could see, even then, that people tend to stick to the same way of doing things.” He smiles, “My instinct was always to turn things on their head, to creatively spin ideas in my mind and see what happens. You suddenly free up possibilities, it’s like you take the brakes off and can power forward.”

What people say about Feisal

Bob Stebbings FCA

Bespoke Accounting 2018 Limited
Littlehampton, West Sussex

“I have been working in the accountancy profession since I left school, qualifying as a Chartered Accountant in 1975. I have worked in practice for 39 years.

I first met and worked with Feisal almost 16 years ago. Feisal challenges our profession to break the traditional mould and approach the way we work in a totally different way.

Feisal is quite simply brilliant, one of the greatest business brains of this century. His influence on modern day strategic marketing should not be underestimated. His name rolls off the tongue with the other great business gurus. Feisal… “A voice that must be listened to”.

Feisal works hard every day to find opportunities for receptive accountants to offer add-on services to clients. This allows smaller firms of accountants like ours to offer our clients a complete service that competes or exceeds those offered by our competitors. With Feisal, we can punch beyond our weight.

In the latter years of my career, Feisal has given me pride in my achievements and enabled me to build a lasting legacy. He has always been someone I can rely on and trust implicitly”.

Antony Weller FCCA

David Jones & Co 2018 Ltd
Reading

“I’m an Equity Director of a regulated accountancy practice based in Reading, Berkshire. I have worked in practice for 35 years.

I have known Feisal for over 20 years and I have always found him to be incredibly loyal to his causes and their supporters. He is a great visionary and innovator and what is more of an achievement is he has the ability to put these visions into practice, as I have personally seen him do many times over the years I have known him.

His work ethic is unbelievable and only matched by his vast energy. His high energy and strong loyalty engages people and encourages them to be involved with his ongoing projects.

Feisal’s word is his bond and the longer you know him the more you will know the values and moral code he upholds will not allow him to break any promises he has made. His competitive nature means he will not be beaten and he wants to be the best in everything he puts his mind too.”

Scott Nixon FCCA

Weaver Wroot Ltd
Grimsby, Lincolnshire

“I’m an Equity Director of a regulated accountancy practice operating in Grimsby, Lincolnshire. I have worked in practice for 23 years.

I’ve known Feisal for 12 years. I find Feisal a motivational and inspirational leader. He has been able to build up multi-million pound businesses from very humble beginnings and due to this success, is able to mix and serve some of the best known business and sports figures in the country.

But despite this, he has always kept his human touch and makes time to speak to all his clients and is never afraid to roll up his sleeves and get his hands dirty. I think we can all learn something from his attitude and work ethic. His results speak for themselves. I genuinely don’t know anyone in my life who is as visionary as Feisal. He simply has an ability to see, think and deliver.

He surrounds himself with safe and trustworthy people who will help him constantly excel his busienss models. Like many others, I’m with him for many years to come.”

John White FCA

Pelham Accountants 2019 Ltd
Grimsby, Lincolnshire

“I’m an Equity Director of a regulated accountancy practice operating in Grimsby, Lincolnshire. I have worked in practice for 40 years.

I’ve known Feisal for 20 years. Feisal is the most energetic, dynamic and innovative businessman I have ever met. His enthusiasm is infectious and has inspired me to make significant improvements to our business and my life over the years since I first met him.

He is not one to rest on his laurels and is always seeking the next opportunity. We have followed his latest work. Highly innovative and industry leading. He works hard and brings people together to punch beyond their weight. I highly recommend him!”

Sir Kenneth Olisa

Lord Lieutenant of London

Sir Kenneth Olisa OBE, Lord Lieutenant of London, (the Queen’s representative in the capital), and a shining light of business brilliance and philanthropy in the UK for which he was knighted in 2018.

The Chairman nonpareil

He is Lord Lieutenant of London, the Queen’s eyes and ears in the capital, and a shining light of business brilliance and philanthropy in the UK – for which he earnt a knighthood in 2018. The hiring of Sir Ken is a real coup for Alitam founder Feisal Nahaboo. “If one needs confirmation of our future success, look no further than Sir Ken,” says Feisal. “He has so much integrity, a phenomenal work ethic and a deep experience of the AIM and FTSE worlds.”
