The Kanoo Group Profile

Page 1

The Founding Father In 1967 Hamed Kanoo came from Saudi Arabia to the UAE to establish and grow the family’s business. Having successfully established YBA Kanoo’s operations in Khafji in the Kingdom, the company asked him to replicate the same in UAE. With only 5 people including him, Hamed Kanoo managed to successfully put The Kanoo Group name on the UAE map. Growing the business was not easy but through sheer hard work and dedication, he established Kanoo as a trusted name in the country. His nephews Khalid from Abu Dhabi and Yusuf from Oman later joined him in Dubai to grow the business further. Hamed Kanoo achieved all of this by following the Kanoo principles of honesty, trust and fairness.

Late Hamed Kanoo

Hamed Kanoo was known for his modesty and his love for life. He never differentiated between influential or poor people and would honour the person who valued him. Family was paramount to him and he believed in keeping up with the ideals of the family. People remember him not only for his decision making ability and business skills but also for his fun loving nature and presence. A truly remarkable person, whose departure left a huge hole in the lives of the people who knew him personally and loved him.

Chairman of The Kanoo Group (1994 – 2014) Yusuf bin Ahmed Kanoo served as the Chairman of The Kanoo Group from 1994 until the last day before he passed away on August 2014. Mr. Kanoo was born in Manama in 1942 and received his secondary education in Bahrain and higher education in the UK. He earned his Master’s Degree in Business Administration from a US university in Texas. Yusuf started his professional experience as Resident Director of Yusuf Bin Ahmed Kanoo & Company in Muscat, Oman between 1976 and 1978. He moved to UAE later on as Director of The Kanoo Group from 1979 to 1981 in Dubai, Director from 1982 to 1984 in Abu Dhabi and back to Dubai as Managing Director from 1985 to 1993. Late Yusuf Bin Ahmed Kanoo

Yusuf became the Chairman of The Kanoo Group, UAE & Oman in 1994 after the death of the founding father, Hamed Kanoo.

Yusuf was also the Chairman of International Paint (Gulf) LLC, Maersk Kanoo (UAE) LLC and BASF Kanoo Gulf (LLC). Yusuf is a keen gardener, also enjoys travelling with his wife who shares the same interests. Renowned for his wisdom and long experience in business, he was also kind-hearted, friendly and sociable, with a good sense of humour. He left behind a rich history of accomplishments and cherished memories.

Chairman’s Message As we approach 125 years doing business in the Gulf, we have to closer look to the new world structure and the many different factors that allow global commerce to happen. Even though these many factors play a significant role, a few old world factors will always matter:

Mishal Kanoo Chairman - ( UAE & Oman )

• Trust

• Honesty

• Fairness

It is with great pride that we offer all of these factors to both our suppliers and our customers. For us the word family in family business really means to be part of our family and that extends to all our stakeholders including our employees who are our backbone. To all our stakeholders, trust, honesty and fairness are what keeps us going and makes people want to work with us. The perception that the human touch is passé is a misperception that needs to go away as it is this human touch that we all look for and all expert. We pride ourselves in that we are lucky, by the grace of Allah, to have that human touch in our family business.
