Sulaiman was born and raised in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Since the age of fourteen, he studied abroad in Switzerland and the United Kingdom. At the University of North Texas, Sulaiman majored in Accounting and International Business.
Sulaiman developed a deep interest in international business, drawing him to work with the mergers and acquisitions advisory team at PwC in Riyadh. While the nature of the transactions Sulaiman worked on were cross border, he often finds himself working on sell-side deals pitching to international investors to invest in Saudi Arabia during a historical economic transformation amidst the significant drop in oil prices. He also worked on privatization mandates, part of a vision to enhance the inflow of international investments. Sulaiman is also an avid polar explorer and president of the Wharton Sailing Team.
