Founder and Group Chief Executive Officer
As Founder and Group CEO, Rahail has taken Select Group from a nascent property developer to one of the largest privately owned property development and real estate investment companies in the GCC, with interests expanding to the UK and Europe.
By the age of 25, Rahail was operating one of the largest import and distribution business for IT hardware across the UK and Europe with over GBP 1 billion in revenues annually. He successfully managed this business for more than a decade.
In the early 2000s, Rahail established Select Group in the UAE and went on to deliver some of the country’s leading residential projects. The Group’s first venture in Dubai was the launch of the iconic superstructure Torch Tower, which was the world’s tallest residential tower at the time of its completion. Under Rahail’s leadership, Select Group has delivered 5.5 million square feet of development to date. With over 7 million square feet of top tier development currently under construction, and the purpose built and fully owned 328 key InterContinental Dubai Marina launched in 2015, Rahail has set Select Group significantly ahead of its regional peers.
A driven individual with a strong belief in value creation, cost leadership and efficiency, Rahail has brought together a management team with the same ethos who can deliver his vision for constant improvement and wealth creation for both customers and stakeholders.
