Regency Group was founded by Mr. Ibrahim Hassan Al-Asmakh, a faithful son of Qatar, who graduated from the University of Arizona, USA, in 1987 majoring in Finance. Full of hope in the future and loyalty to the heritage and history of his ancestors, he returned home and built a national enterprise at the highest international standards, in tune with the honorable present of Qatar and the aspirations for a prosperous future. The Enterprise evolved and achieved multiple successes until it encompassed eighteen companies.
Regency Group is sponsoring the prizes for the high school seniors from Qatar and a dozen countries in the Middle East that submit the best designs based on the 2009 VCUQatar Design Competition theme. The signing ceremony was attended by Mr. Ibrahim Al Asmakh, President of Regency Group and Ms. Allyson Vanstone, Dean of VCUQatar. Ms. Vanstone noted, “We are excited about the generous 2009 sponsorship by Regency Group and the potential to sponsor the design competition for the next four years. It is wonderful to see Qatari business leaders such as Mr. Al-Asmakh support the Emir and Her Highness’ vision of education excellence in Qatar.”
During the meeting Mr. Al Asmakh emphasized the urgent need for great designers to help all the burgeoning industries in Qatar and lauded VCUQatar’s efforts to provide high quality designers. Also in attendance at the ceremony were Mr. Ehab Selim from Regency Group and Mr. Moamer Qazafi from VCUQatar.
