The Network of Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed al Maktoum

Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed al Maktoum is the man of the moment after Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum, ruler of Dubai, replaced current Dubai World chairman Sultan bin Sulayem with him. Sheikh Ahmed, who is, interestingly, Sheikh Mohammed’s uncle, has the not-so-enviably task of heading the troublesome Dubai World, a company that has worked hard to restructure $25 billion of debt over the past year.
Sheikh Ahmed is best known for his role as chairman of Emirates Airlines—a position he has held since the inception of the airline. In fact he has a career history in aviation, ever since he was appointed to the office of the President of the Dubai Department of Civil Aviation. A holder of a Bachelors Degree from the University of Denver, Colorado, Sheikh Ahmed was honoured for his contribution and achievement in aviation with a fellowship of the Royal Aeronautical Society at the 1994 Farnborough Air Show in the UK. He is also the Chairman of Dubai Airport Free Zone Authority, Dubai Air Wing, Alliance Insurance Company, Le Meridien Dubai, Dubai International Marine Club, Dubai Golf Club, The British University in Dubai, The Dubai Power & Energy Committee, and the UAE National Olympic Committee. He is also, apparently, the International Life Vice President of Chelsea Football Club and, as Wikipedia felt it important to note, Sheikh Ahmed “loves to eat toffees”.
Considered by some as one of the pioneers that have seen and helped Dubai grow over the years, Sheikh Ahmed’s network is as interesting and diverse as his experience is. Click “Next” to continue.
