Khalid Abdul Rahim is the CEO of Cebarco Bahrain, a multi-million dollar construction company in the middle-east and is the leading building and civil engineering company based in Bahrain.

"I believe the MSc in Construction Management from Glasgow Caledonian and my ongoing relationship with the university has been key to the rapid growth of my business and the successful delivery and early completion of world class projects such as the Bahrain F1 Grand Prix Circuit and the Abu Dhabi F1 YAS-Marina Circuit. I am honoured to be a supporter of the university that helped me move my company to the next level."

Khalid undertook his MSc degree with GCU at the same time as he was building one of the most challenging construction projects in Bahrain - the Formula 1 Grand Prix circuit which had to be completed in 16 months from a standing start. It was completed on time and this achievement helped to establish him as a major player in the construction industry in the Middle East. His turnover has grown from that time in 2003/04 when it stood at $150million to the present $1.5Billion. He was recently nominated as Middle East Entrepreneur of the year and holds the University in very high regard and is always available to help with initiatives in the Middle East.

Khalid, who previously studied Engineering at the University of Austin, Texas, USA has over 20 years experience in the construction industry.
