A total of seventeen sectors are featured on the inaugural Arabian Business Brit List, showing the strong diversity of roles in which Britons in the UAE are now involved.

Of those sectors, two came out on top. The banking and finance and media sectors both had ten entries; together they made up 40 percent of the list.

The top entries from the world of banking and finance include Emirates NBD CEO Rick Pudner and National Bank of Abu Dhabi CEO Michael Tomalin.

Other prominent finance executives are Simon Cooper, deputy chairman and CEO of HSBC Bank Middle East, Graham Honeybill, the CEO of RAKBANK, and Jonathan Morris, the CEO of Standard Chartered UAE.

The roll-call of media entries was led by Sam Barnett, the CEO of MBC Group, who took second spot on the list. John Antoniades, the CEO of Starcome MediaVest Group (seventh place). John Brash, the CEO of Brash Brands, was placed nineteenth.

After finance and media, transport and property had the second highest number of entries, both with four names. Tim Clark and Dubai Airports CEO Paul Griffiths (third place) were the top transport entries, while CBRE’s Nick Maclean (fourteenth) and Safi Qurashi (29th) were the highest property executives.

Two sectors – energy and advisory – had three entries each.
