Arabian Business put Dr. Homoud in the company of giants known world over for their achievements in diverse fields like banking, investment, art, culture, technology, real estate, aviation, media, science, information technology, sports, hospitality, energy, etc.

Ranking of Dr. Homoud is recognition of his immense standing in the construction and real estate sector. He is the fifth most influential Jordanian in the list while his position put him fourth among Qataris.

Being in the 500 Most Influential Arabs, Dr. Homoud finds himself in the company of Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Al Saud (Kingdom Holding Company) and Fahad Al Mubarak (Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency) of Saudi Arabia, Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Makhtoum (Emirates group), Mohammad Alabbar (Emaar), Mohammed Al Shaibani (Dubai Ruler's Court), and Dahi Khalfan Tamim ( Dubai Police chief) of UAE, Ahmad Al Sayed (Qatar Holding) and Akbar Al Baker (Qatar Airways) of Qatar, and Mazen Rawashdeh, a Jordanian by origin and head of operations of micro-blogging site Twitter.

In 2012, Dr. Homoud was ranked at 53 rd position in the list. The list, better known as the Arabian Business Power List features Arabs living in 37 different countries, and working in every sector from business and media, to sports, science and entertainment.

Having moved Qatar to expand his dentistry services in 2001, Dr. Homoud quickly moved into other sectors. He set up The Wall for Investment & Real Estate Development in 2002. The Wall quickly transformed into a real estate empire spanning many countries of the region.

Established and managed with passion, "The Wall Investment and Real Estate Development" is one of the major real estate development companies of Qatar. The company has seen meteoric rise in around a decade of its establishment in 2002.

This rise has been a result of the management style, adopted by the team led by its founder and CEO Dr. Naseer Homoud that takes into consideration the shifts in the real estate sector of the country as well as regional and international arena.  

The Wall offers most diversified products comprising residential, commercial/IT parks, retail, hotels, amusement parks and Special Economic Zones. Having started the journey in a modest way, The Wall is now establishing new standards in the industry. While development of residential projects and integrated townships including low housing projects in several countries of Middle East are primary focus areas, the Wall is also working on various aspects of real estate development, such as land identification and acquisition, project planning, designing, marketing and execution.

Tourism is another area that The Wall and its associate companies are focusing. In early 2012,one of the sister company organized  World Travel Awards, which were held for the first time in Doha. The company and achieved great success in light of the presence of hundreds of prominent Arab and international dignitaries associated with the tourism sector.

The Wall has benefitted in this endeavor from the experience gained by investing in the Spanish tourism sector. Long before the financial crisis, "The Wall" has been promoting and marketing a number of tourist real estate projects in Malaga, Granada, and Mallorca, not to mention the beautiful areas in the Iberian country.
