Max Wrey

Associate Director

Max Wrey is an Associate Director of Digital Audit and Research at Hawthorn. He is responsible for conducting investigations and helping clients understand the risks they face in the digital space and how they can mitigate these.

Prior to joining Hawthorn, Max worked at online reputation management company Digitalis and business intelligence boutique Alaco. Prior to this, he held various roles in the Middle East, including for a trade event organiser in post-Gaddafi Libya, a security risk analysis company in Basra, and a real estate development project in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

An obsessive student of the Arabic language, Max’s studies and travels in the Arab World have ignited an insatiable interest in all matters of history, culture, and politics in that geopolitically crucial part of the world.

His appetite for Arabic is only matched by that for the cuisines of the world. Outside of gourmandising, Max is riding the Padel wave and a keen cricket follower.
