11. Said T Khoury
Chairman and president

Consolidated Contractors Co

Entrepreneur and philanthropist, Said Khoury is a legend in the Arab world. He oversees the day-to-day running of one of the most competitive firms in the region, active in 40 countries with 80,000 employees. Since the establishment of the company by Khoury, Kamel Abdul-Rahman and Hasib Sabbagh in the 1950s, the company – based in Athens, Greece – has built landmark projects throughout the region.

Most recently the company’s contract wins include Abu Dhabi presidential palace and work on Princess Noura University in Riyadh. Further, Khoury’s involvement in numerous organisations, diplomatic ventures and financial bodies makes his overall influence in the world beyond Arab states extensive.

To give just a few of his responsibilities, he is governor of the Arab Monetary Fund; chairman of the Palestinian Businessmen Organisation, the International Business Group and the board of trustees of the Palestinian Initiative for the Promotion of Global Dialogue & Democracy-MIFTAH; and a board member for the Interaudi Bank in New York, Canvest Corporation in Canada, and Arab Life and Accident Insurance Company in Jordan.

“The question of values as we may all realise is indivisible be
they family, corporate, social, or national values. In their purest form,
values represent a commitment to the supreme ideals of life.”
