Omar K Alghanim

IN A HUFFINGTON Post opinion piece in January, Alghanim predicted a year of promise and opportunity, despite falling oil prices, announcing that his company was in the process of closing a major acquisition and would be looking for other deals. The Harvard-educated CEO has led family business Alghanim Industries, one of the largest privately owned companies in the Gulf region with over 30 businesses in 40 countries since 2002, and now has positions of power at Gulf Bank, Perella Weinberg Partners and other Alghanim family interests.
