23. Ismail Al Hammadi, Founder and CEO of Al Ruwad Real Estate

Ismail Al Hammadi is the founder and CEO of two renowned companies in Dubai, Al Ruwad Real Estate and Biznet Consulting. Al Ruwad Real Estate was established in 2013 and to this day has remained at the forefront of Dubai’s real estate market. Biznet Consulting opened its doors in 2015 and has helped investors and owners to initiate and complete their projects in Dubai through an array of innovative services, such as facilitating Government Relations strategies. With more than 22 years of experience, Ismail Al Hammadi is a leading figure in Dubai’s real estate and business scene being known as a “deal maker” offering invaluable insights for local and international investors.

Prior to that, Ismail Al Hammadi had a flourishing career managing different governments agencies departments, as an Executive Director of Business Development at TECOM Group or Manager of Government Relations of Dubai Industrial City, to name a few.

Ismail Al Hammadi is a firm believer that with an appropriate leadership structure, any business can thrive even during economic challenging times and that real leaders are forged in crisis. The best leaders take personal ownership in a crisis, even though many challenges and factors lie outside their control and create a culture of accountability, giving everyone within the company a job and a purpose. While the world is emerging to a new normal, both Al Ruwad Real Estate and Biznet Consulting are taking not only social responsibility, but a stance to adapt to the new consumer’s requirements, digital transformation and new business practices. Maximizing productivity and achieving business goals in 2020 are still a priority for Ismail, while putting his team’s health and safety first.
