The company has recently made several senior appointments in its key UK, US and Asian offices and said these latest changes are part of its plans to shape the company to focus on five key industrial sectors– healthcare, energy, technology, luxury and financial and professional services.

The closure of the Qatar office also means a number of staff in the Middle East will leave the business. The company will continue to operate in the region from its Abu Dhabi office.

A statement on the WRG site said: "We’re making these changes to ensure we continue to grow in a smart and sustainable way and that we continue to deliver for our clients brilliantly."
