2019 CW Power 100: PNC Menon of Dubai's Sobha Group ranked #35
EXCLUSIVE: Founder and chairman of Sobha Group returns to CW's ranking of the region's most influential industry leaders
A first-generation entrepreneur, Indian-born PNC Menon, founder and chairman of developer Sobha Realty, leads a team of 164 full-time qualified engineers and 2,757 unskilled labourers.
The developer, which says the UAE is its most important geography in the Middle East, is still busy with its flagship Sobha Hartland development, a freehold community covering an area of more than 222,000m2 in Dubai’s Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum City.
Set along the Dubai Water Canal, Sobha Hartland – which Sobha says is its single biggest opportunity over the next 12 months – comprises L-shaped villas with 12 floor-plan options, as well as semi-detached villas, townhouses, and high-rise apartments.
