1. Khaled Musaed El Seif, Chairman, El Seif Engineering Contracting Co (Power 100 ranking: 8)

As chairman of Saudi Arabia-based El Seif Engineering Contracting Company, Khaled Musaed El Seif presides over one of the largest contracting companies in the kingdom.

The company, which employs more than 40,000 construction professionals in total, completed an impressive number of projects between June 2016 and May 2017.

In Saudi Arabia, the firm acted as the main contractor for the Haramain High Speed Rail Project’s passenger stations in King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC); the Millennium Hotel in Ha’il; a sports hall and athletic stadium in Jeddah; and junctions, underpasses, travelators, tunnels, and land bridges for Thumamah Road in Riyadh’s King Abdullah Financial District (KAFD).

El Seif’s current project portfolio, meanwhile, includes a series of large-scale developments in both its domestic market and the neighbouring UAE.

At present, the company is supporting the construction of 10 residential cities in the kingdom’s Southern Region, and a five-star hotel in the city of Tabouk. In the Emirates, El Seif is working on Dubai’s Entisar Tower, and a 2,200-villa Meydan residential development.

The Saudi Arabian contractor is also facilitating the development of a security-related special forces project, and a building that will be used in the pursuit of international cooperation, both within the Middle East region.
