2021 CW Power 100: Al Bawani CEO Fakher Al-Shawaf clinches rank 7

Managing the reins of the company for more than 22 years Al-Shawaf has driven Al Bawani to build a very strong engineering procurement and construction (EPC) team while increasing its reliance on technology.

Continuing to stay agile in a crisis situation Al Bawani managed to grow and diversify its business by securing billions of riyals worth of projects across sectors in different regions within Saudi Arabia and abroad.
