Ahmed Mohammed Alhatti (Arabic: احمد محمد الحاطي‎); born in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia is the President and Chairman of the Board of Cayan Group which developed many projects in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates.

Ahmed Alhatti is the man behind the $272mn “twisting tower” called Cayan Tower, in Dubai Marina. The 75-storey skyscraper was delivered after seven years last June following a series of delays. It has since gone on to win plaudits and awards for its original design, which reduces wind forces on the tower. Alhatti told Construction Week in February 2014 that he was assessing land options for more projects in Dubai. “I am taking my time in the UAE, because everyone is waiting to see what we will do after Cayan Tower. We want to do something unique; we can’t just do a normal building anymore.” [1]
