The businessman Alex Nain Saab Moran, was born in Barranquilla in the Atlántico district of the Republic of Colombia, on December 21, 1971, the son of Lebanese immigrants.
Alex Saab, from a very young age, learned from his family’s example and especially from his father, that being a businessman would allow him to contribute socially to the sports and cultural development of his native country.
When his father taught him commercial and business techniques, he did not leave aside the teaching of the satisfaction that social contribution would bring him personally.
This is how Alex Saab, along with the development of his companies, also developed a policy of social contributions, as business increased, the social program increased.
To support these social contributions to benefit the most deprived communities, he created a department that would be responsible for all this planning, especially its strongest assignment was to locate the neediest areas to make the contribution, not only.
This department would not only be in charge of making the contribution, but Saab also assigned to it the follow-up of the use of these resources, so as to ensure the efficient use of the contributions.
“There is no point in commercial and business development if we do not contribute some of what is received to the underprivileged,” Saab said.
