Company: Gulf Petrochemical Industries Company
Position: CEO

Biography: Abdul Rahman Jawahery first joined Gulf Petrochemical Industries Company (GPIC) in 1983, when the company was four years old.

Now, owned jointly by the government of Bahrain, Sabic and Petrochemical Industries Company of Kuwait, GPIC is one of the oldest petrochemicals companies in the Gulf, producing 1.4 million tonnes a year of ammonia, urea and ethanol. Under Jawahery, the company has gradually moved downstream, producing fertilisers as well as raw petrochemical products.

Although shortages of gas are currently hampering its expansion plans, in October Jawahery announced that GPIC was considering a $1bn expansion to its facilities.

He is also the chairman of the technical committee for the International Fertiliser Association, and a board member of the Arab Fertiliser Association.
