The year 2013 is our 66th year. We have come a long way since the summer of 1947, when Suliman S. Olayan launched his first business in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia. While still private and closely held, the group he founded has blossomed over the decades into a multinational enterprise with offices on three continents and 15,000 people employed by 50 affiliated companies.
Today The Olayan Group is a major international investor and leading diversified business in the Middle East. In both investment and operations, we pride ourselves on forging durable relationships with high-quality partners in a perpetual quest for business excellence.
Going forward, we will continue to build our reputation on the bedrock values of our founder: dedication, integrity, teamwork, and continual improvement.
Our diverse and talented people exhibit these values every day. Above, we introduce members of our global team and will showcase others periodically.
