Marcopolis ranked the most powerful business leaders in Saudi Arabia. The ranking is based on an executive survey with the top businessmen as part of the business report on Saudi Arabia. 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.
While there is some correlation between the wealth and being the most powerful businessman, the wealth was not the single defining factor in the nominations. The business community in Saudi Arabia took into many consideration other qualities when nominating the “most powerful businessman”. The wealthiest person in Saudi Arabia, Prince Al-Waleed Bin Talal is currently No.3, in the survey.
