Druid Motorcycle Company International is proud to announce a $20 million investment by Qatari billionaire and playboy Ali "Big" Al Farook. Mr. Farook will be joining the Druid board as deputy chairman, and assume the role of Chief Marketing Officer for Middle East and Asia.
Mr. Farook is a graduate of the University of East Temor School of Business, then made his fortune by developing the second largest dry-cleaning chain in Qatar and the UAE. Resident in Dubai, Mr. Farook was so impressed by the Druid XEV prototypes that he decided to join the disruptive firm.
"Nothing excites me like the innovation that comes from self-taught people." Mr. Farook said. "(Druid CEO) Milan is a true genius. S.W.A.R.M. will be the next level disruptor in the powered two-wheel industry."
Mr. Farook travelled with Milan to Vietnam to help negotiate additional venture funding and locate a factory.
