Who’s Who: Mohammed Al-Hajjaj, CEO of Engie Saudi Arabia

Mohammed Al-Hajjaj is the CEO of Engie Saudi Arabia, a global low-carbon energy provider, a role he took over in May 2023.

Al-Hajjaj oversees a robust business portfolio exceeding SR33 billion (approx. $9 billion) focused on critical sectors for Saudi Arabia’s future. These include desalination, low-carbon energy solutions and clean energy projects. This directly translates to employing over 2,000 individuals across the Kingdom.

He has over 15 years of experience in international companies as well as at the Saudi Ministry of Investment, where he has actively contributed for the past five years.

He began his professional career with Schneider Electric in 2006, holding various leadership positions for the next decade. He directed their solar energy business across the Middle East, underlining his early commitment to sustainable solutions.

In 2016 he joined General Electric, where he oversaw corporate transformation and led the power conversion unit business in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain.

Recognizing the significance of Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030, Al-Hajjaj joined the Ministry of Investment (previously the General Investment Authority) in 2018. As director general for developing and attracting investment, he was instrumental in driving investment and enhancing competitiveness within the Kingdom’s energy, water and waste management sectors. He also contributed to regional investment development initiatives within the ministry.

Al-Hajjaj earned a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals and a master’s degree in engineering systems management from the University of Dayton in the US.
