Also making his debut in Construction Week’s Power 100 list, Eng. Osama Bin Hassan Al Afaleq was appointed as chairman of the Saudi Contractors Authority (SCA) by the kingdom’s government to organise and develop the contracting sector around four years ago.

Based on his performance over the past 12 months, Eng. Al Afaleq was re-elected almost one year ago by the industry to continue his role as chairman.

Co-inciding with his family’s private business as the vice chairman of AlKifah Holding, the SCA chairman has been responsible in funding the organisation and regulating the construction industry to prepare the sector for achieving the goals under Vision 2030.

They successfully organised the Future Projects Forum (FPF) where 23 entities have participated, and they presented 600 projects with a value of more than $120bn (SAR450bn).

He was also responsible for building the SCA’s workforce from just 334 in 2017 to 6,016 in 2019.

Even with the expected slowdown due to COVID-19 and the oil price decline, SCA said it strongly believed they would maintain its market share in the construction and support industries.
