Known for his unusually strong drive to succeed, Omar Al Ghanim succeeded in a relatively short period of time in reaching the top office of his family’s 84-year old business. As the CEO of Alghanim Industries, his prominent role in the global conglomerate has led to high-profile board memberships including chairmanships of both the Gulf Bank and INJAZ Kuwait, which he founded. Serving as a director of INJAZ Al Arab, a regional organization that focuses on education, training, and getting young people employed across the MENA region, takes up another part of his time.
