Who is Iskandar Safa
Iskandar Safa and his brother Akram Safa founded Privinvest. Safa is native to Beirut; he was born in 1955. Safa’s life was filled with turmoil due to a civil war in his country. In spite of that, he was determined to succeed in his business endeavours. Safa obtained a civil engineering degree from the American University of Beirut. He later went on to work at his family’s civil engineering company. Next, Safa got his MBA from INSEAD. In 1991, Safa invested in an old shipbuilding company in France; the company was run down and going out of business. Safa was able to completely rejuvenate the company. In 2011 Safa acquired exclusive ownership of Privinvest. Now, Privinvest is the leading shipbuilding company in the UK and the Middle East.
