Only two years after graduation, Auchi started working with the Iraqi Ministry of Oil, and became the director of planning and development. His career was going upward very quickly, so that by 1979 he was already the founder of General Mediterranean Holding in Luxembourg. However, following a blackmail attempt by a certain assassin, Nadhmi and his family decided to move to London, although Auchi and his family didn’t become British citizens until 1989. Obviously his net worth was rising quickly too.
It was only six years later that Auchi’s brother was hanged, following conviction for alleged corruption. Since that event, Auchi and his wife promote inter-faith dialogue, unity and humanitarian work, for which Nadhmi is very well-known. Other than being an excellent businessman, Nadhmi had a voice in politics, education and humanitarian work as well. He was the vice-chair of the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University from 1996 to 2000.

He also became the president of the Anglo-Arab Organization in 2002, a non-profit making organization which was founded in order to promote the integration of British Arabs into British community, while still retaining their identity. The AAO’s humanitarian work is broad, and includes money donations to homeless families in Pakistan, building schools in Morocco and collecting a sum of $ 35 000 for Cancer Research Unit of the Kingston Hospital in London.
Being an educated man himself, sir Auchi decided to launch the “Nadhmi Auchi Fellowship For Young Arab Leaders”, an association dedicated to students from Egypt and other Arab states, which pays for all of their study costs. Nadhmi received another acknowledgement in 2013, being awarded the Freedom of the City of London, and only a year later he was named a Knight Commander of the Most Distinguished Order of the Nation of Antigua and Barbuda.
However, in spite of his incredibly successful business career, certain dark sides were revealed when, in 2003, Nadhmi was convicted of fraud and corruption related to the “Elf Aquitaine” oil company. His punishment was a $2.8 million and 15 months of suspended jail sentence for his involvement in the 1991 scandal, when he was accused of illegally usurping $ 118 million. When it comes to his personal life, Auchi married his wife Ibtisam in 1963, and they have three daughters and a son.
