Ghandour is widely regarded as an enterprising businessman. Some say he’s got the Midas touch, but we think that’s a bit much.
His company, Aramex, posted a 19 percent increase in net profits for the first quarter of 2009, ending March 31, 2009, over the same period last year. Given the market conditions, the increase is a significant indicator of the company’s governance, which many attribute to Ghandour’s guidance and forward-thinking.
Ghandour is also a founding partner in Maktoob.com – reportedly the largest online community in the Arab world – and serves on the board of directors of Abraaj Capital.
