Company: Plan B Group
Designation: Founder and Managing Director
Harmeek Singh knows how to work his way up the ladder. The Indian-born businessman is the founder and managing director of Plan B Group, which manages some of the UAE’s biggest public events, including Dubai Rugby 7s and the Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon. But his career in the UAE started with an AED2,000 salary in 2003, when he came to the Gulf country following the closure of his family’s business in India. In the span of just two years, he was earning as much as AED200,000 a month. Shortly after, he opened Plan B, where he was the sole employee. Fast forward to less than a decade after, and Singh’s firm employs over 500 workers.
