6. Tarek Abdulaziz Sultan
Chief Executive Officer & Vice Chairman

2014 position: 07
2013 position: 07

Tarek Abdulaziz Sultan is chief executive officer of Agility, one of the world’s leading providers of integrated logistics with an annual revenue close to $6 billion and nearly 30,000 employees across 100 countries.

Agility, which has operations in more than 100 countries, welcomed former investment banker Sultan as chairman and managing director when it was privatised in 1997. He stepped down as chairman when promoted to CEO in January 2014 due to commercial law and corporate governance regulations in Kuwait requiring these positions be held separately.

Over the course of the last decade, Sultan has spearheaded Agility’s expansion from a local Kuwaiti player to the largest logistics company in the Middle East and a leading global company.

Sultan, who holds a MBA from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and Bachelors of Economics from Williams College, has been an integral part of numerous worldwide logistics projects in electronics, retail, food and beverage, technology and oil and governments sectors.

His strategic outlook has also contributed significantly to the development of customs modernisation projects around the world.

In 2014 the company reported a net profit of $168.1m, a rise of 10% year-on-year, and revenues of $4.51bn, up 6% year-on-year.

In April 2015, Agility won 3PL Service Provider of the Year and the annual Supply Chain & Transport Awards (SCATAs), held in Dubai.
