Ravi Pillai

Chairman, RP Group
Joseph Daher
Ibrahim Jaidah

Dr Ravi Pillai’s RP Group has enjoyed significant success in growing its regional footprint. The firm boasts a Grade A general contractor rating, issued by the Saudi Arabian government, and is present in eight other countries. For example, RP Group has been awarded more than $620m (AED2.28bn) in construction contracts in the UAE. Keen to make inroads in markets with untapped potential, Indian entrepreneur Pillai and his team have identified Ajman, UAE as a prospective avenue for growth. In 2015, Gulf Asia Contracting, part of RP Group, predicted that the emirate would grow into a magnet for development, noting that Ajman is becoming increasingly attractive to first-time real estate buyers.
