Occupation: CEO

Down nine places this year, Ali Hassan Kolghassi is a Power List regular. And for good reason. He is CEO of the Jordan-based Saraya Holdings, which has tentacles in as many sectors as you can name, chairman for property behemoth Saraya Real Estate MENA and boss of airline Saraya skies.

If that weren’t enough, he also counts the title of vice president of Saudi Oger — the Riyadh-based corporation with fingers in construction and banking — among his many roles.

Kolaghassi has been credited with growing the firm into sectors such as real estate and banking; areas in which Saudi Oger now boasts considerable investments.

The Jordan-based businessman has won a clutch of awards for his business expertise, including the title of ‘Real Estate Industry Champion,’ awarded in 2005 by the Young Arab Leaders Organisation.
