An Eton College and Cambridge University graduate, Badr Jafar, has certainly inked a name for himself.

Apart from serving as president of Crescent Petroleum, chairman of Pearl petroleum and of Gas Cities LLC, Jafar is leading a varied group of pioneering companies in his role as CEO of Crescent Enterprises.

That is not where the list concludes. In fact, Jafar tends to be active in different industries, both regionally and internationally, including aviation, shipping, real estate and private equity. Jafar was recently honoured as a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum.
