Sayed Metwally


Sayed Metwally was born on February 13, 1941, in a modest neighborhood in Port Said, Egypt. Ever since he was a kid, Metwally had shown considerable interest in soccer; as a young boy, he used to tag along with his friends playing football in Port Said districts, an early boomer who strives for success. Such progress had continued for years, and his accomplishments were born out not only by passion but also determination and hard work. At the age of 38, he was appointed as the President of Al-Masry Sporting Club in Port Said.

Metwally had assumed responsibility early in life. He started work while attending secondary school. Ever since, he had been an inspiration to anybody who wants to challenge the odds and turn dreams to reality. For many years, Metwally had been an accomplished teacher in Port Said; throughout his educational career, he had been one of the famous influencers at that time. Upon the onset of the 1967 war, Metwally moved to Cairo to work in his profession for a few years until he was appointed in 1973 as the head of Educational Delegation in Libya, where he stayed there for six years. Among his works is the establishment of private schools in Libya as well as other construction projects.

Years later, Metwally decided to come back Egypt to establish a number of construction projects in Cairo and Port Said governorates. He was the first entrepreneur to construct a factory for Ready Built Homes in Egypt and the Middle East, constructing 200 residential units in El Kabouty district in Port Said and El Salam City, among others.

Other than the company’s considerable success in Egypt, Metwally had successfully expanded his business operations in Albania as well, where he established a number of residential and construction projects amid political upheavals back then. Metwally was always keen to build community relationships and maintain diplomatic relations in Albania’s government. Some of the projects he did were building an arrival and departure halls in the airport of Albania, as well as constructing the Ministry of Interior Building.
