A multifaceted entrepreneur, Adeeb Ahamed’s contribution to the UAE economy can’t be distilled into a single role or a single sector. Perhaps best known as a dynamic board member of the Lulu Group International Management, he founded Lulu Exchange in 2009 and went on to oversee its expansion into a global company with more than 170 branches in just eight years. He was then invited to initiate other divisions within the Group, such as Tablez, which operates restaurants such as Peppermill, Famous Dave’s and Pancake House, and Twenty14 Holdings, the hospitality entity that introduced The Steigenberger Hotel brand to the UAE.
Adeeb’s growing stature as a business leader has also earned him a position on the senior advisory board of the South Asia Regional Strategy Group (RSG) at the World Economic Forum (WEF). The invitation-only flagship group and its members are committed to the shared mission of accelerating the regional transformation of South Asia through public-private cooperation. The RSG provides strategic guidance on the forum’s regional agenda, and is the highest-level decision making body for the WEF’s activities in South Asia.
He is also committed to social projects and has built a girls’ hostel in Kerala and helped fund the Indian School in Oman. Adeeb also supports the parents of young children needing heart operations and facilitates the treatment of such infants aged one to five.
