When Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan became president of UAE, a lot of families have returned, including the family of Al Nowais. Their progress as a family started with Al Nowais’ grandfather who from a pearl merchant became a trader for foodtsuffs and materials. That was the beginning of their family business, which is an organisation for trade.
Al Nowais continued schooling in the United States of America after finishing high school in his beloved place, Abu Dhabi.
He finished a business administration degree in the United States of America and then practices it right away in the UAE, wherein his heart and soul were filled with optimism and bright ideas. It is so impressive who Al Nowais has lifted his credibility so high, making him succeed even in his early 20’s, wherein he was able to deal with big names in the business world.
Along with his dedication, intelligence, luck, and commitment, he was able to evolve their family business into a well-known contracting, trading, distributing, and manufacturing company, which is not limited in UAE. According to him, he almost started from nothing in order to build what he has now.
One of the biggest events in his career that made their business grew more and more was when he was able to have a contract for a certain government department in supplying electrical equipment.
The reason why Al Nowais is successful in his career is that he improved his knowledge and skills regularly.
Al Nowais was even clever enough to think that it is good to have a food business when the Gulf War began. He even bought dying businesses and restructured them, making them reach the pick again.
And up to this day, he is still showing and sharing his excellence, such as having Federal Foods.
