Al-Mutairi has held many leadership positions, including: Chief Executive Officer of "GEMS Education - Saudi Arabia" from 2017 until his appointment date in Maarif. He also held the position of Executive Vice President of Operations at “Al Fahim Holding Group” in the United Arab Emirates and the Gulf. He also held several positions through his 15 years of work at Saudi Aramco and SABIC.
Al-Mutairi holds a Bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering Science from "The University of Arkansas at Little Rock" in the United States of America.
