Mohammed Abdul Latif Jameel is No. 1, and Saleh Al-Turki, at No. 2, is the second most powerful businessmen in Saudi Arabia.
The research team asked the interviewees, who they think are the five most powerful businessmen in Saudi Arabia. Each one nominated 5 businessmen. The interviewees anonymously nominated a total of 86 leaders.
Out of the 86 personalities nominated by our interviewees, 26 leaders were a common vote amongst them, with eight of the top businessmen standing out from the group and emerging as the clear leading business figures in Saudi Arabia. More than 75 businessmen participated in the survey to date. The survey is ongoing and the ranking might change over time.
