Shiekh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum (Arabic: أحمد بن سعيد آل مكتوم; born 1 December 1958) is president of the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority, CEO and chairman of the Emirates Group, chairman of Dubai World, and Noor Takaful insurance company. He is chairman of the Dubai Supreme Fiscal Committee, and second vice chairman of the Dubai Executive Council.
The youngest son of former ruler of Dubai Saeed bin Maktoum bin Hasher Al Maktoum, he is the brother of former ruler of Dubai Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum and the uncle of ruler of Dubai Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
Ahmed's career in the aviation industry began in 1985, when he was appointed president of the Dubai Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) (the governing body which oversaw the activities of Dubai International and Dubai Duty Free). Emirates, the national carrier, was launched at the same time, with Ahmed appointed chairman.
He is believed to be connected to at least 14 board members in 14 organizations in 14 industries. Ahmed has been called "the man who put Dubai on the global aviation map."
He married Egyptian socialite Nivin El-Gamal in 2007. She gave birth to their only child, Sheikh Saeed bin Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum in Los Angeles in 2008. It was later reported that El-Gamal feared deportation from the United Kingdom where she resided. Court hearings took place, but Ahmed did not attend. Al Maktoum later married a first cousin twice removed (a regional tradition) in 2008. In 2011, his net worth was reported to be £19 billion ($31.7 billion), placing him first ahead of the King of Thailand on the list of royalty by net worth for that year.Ernst & Young 2011 Entrepreneur of the Year Award for the UAEEmirates Airline Festival of Literature Personality of the Year 2012 AwardHonorary degree from City University London Two-time flag-bearer for the UAE at the Olympics
