Hassan Jameel’s grandfather, Abdul Latif Jameel, developed ALJ in 1945. He was proud of his considerable success in the automotive space after he opened another business in Jeddah. In 1955, Abdul Latif became a Toyota distributor, a business he passed on to his son, Mohammed Jameel, ALJ’s current CEO, and chairman. ALJ covers several industries, from real estate to engineering and manufacturing. One of the latest technological developments at ALJ is the business-to-business platform, which allows this firm to use its previous data to forecast future fluctuations. Hassan Jameel predicts that developing ALJ’s data science crew will improve its ability to solve financial, legal, and operational problems.
Hassan Jameel studied in Japan, so he uses Honshu practices such as Kaizen and Genchi Genbutsu to prepare ALJ for the era of advanced technology. ALJ had started digitization before the pandemic; however, COVID-19 accelerated this plan. For instance, this company started home delivery vehicles for its Lexus and Toyota consumers, and it prepared virtual showrooms for remote viewing because of COVID-19. Jameel is also the vice chair of Community Jameel, an independent organization established in 2003 to carry on the Jameel family’s philanthropy tradition. Jameel is on the Family Business Council’s founding committee, which supports business development in North Africa and the Middle East.
