Company: Bin Faqeeh Real Estate Investment Company

Designation: Founder and CEO

Faisal Faqeeh is the Kingdom of Bahrain’s real estate visionary and the man behind building the Bin Faqeeh brand into a household name in less than 

a decade. Leading from the front, Faqeeh has been able to bring to life developments of small and large scale to the Kingdom and reshape Bahrain’s architectural landscape each year.

He launched Bin Faqeeh Real Estate Investment Company SPC in 2008 with a focus on developing state-of-the-art, innovative and futuristic real estate projects that aim to change the status quo in Bahrain. With much dedication and hard work, Bin Faqeeh began delivering $1.2bn worth of real estate developments across the Kingdom over the next decade. 

Earlier this year, for instance, Bin Faqeeh unveiled plans for Paramount Residences Bahrain, Waterbay in partnership with Paramount Hotels & Resorts. Developed and managed by the international hotel and entertainment company, the project will reflect Hollywood glamour and luxury in what will be Bahrain’s first Hollywood concept real estate project. Paramount Residences Bahrain, Waterbay are expected to be completed in the Q2 2019.

With a promising future of potential opportunities to explore across the entire GCC, Bin Faqeeh has already established a strong presence in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia by inaugurating offices in Al Khobar, Jeddah and Riyadh. 

Bin Faqeeh has since used his influence and leadership for social causes. In late 2017, he launched a programme in Bahrain in partnership with KUUR Rehabilitation Dubai for children with special needs. The programme’s aim is to show the special abilities these children have and offer support for parents, educators and children alike. He strongly believes that it is everyone’s responsibility to look after these children to help further their interests and quality of life.
