Dr. Abdulla Al Masoud is CEO of one of the Kingdom’s major contracting companies, Al Arrab Contracting Company. The Riyadh-based company is working on some of the biggest infrastructure projects in Saudi Arabia.

Al Arrab is part of the consortium that is working on the first phase of the $14bn Haramain Railway line that will connect the holy cities of Makkah and Madinah via Jeddah.

The company, which is part of the Al Rajhi Holding Group, has been busy on airport projects, working on Prince Mohammad Bin Abdulaziz Airport in Makkah and the Terminal 5 in King Khaled Inernational Airport in Riyadh with TAV. It has also built aircraft hangars at KAIA in Jeddah.

Al Arrab Contracting was set up in 1983 to carry out simple contracts, but has since expanded to become a major Kingdom contractor, with 16 subsidiaries and 12,000 members of its workforce.
