Iran: Ahmad Marvi



Custodian of Astan Quds Razavi

Although a close ally of Rahbar (Supreme Leader) Ayatollah Ali Hosseini Khamenei, Ahmad Marvi has kept a low-profile and is thus relatively unknown – despite spending his career in high-ranking roles within the Bayt-e Rahbari (Office of the Supreme Leader) and now as head of the powerful Astan Quds Razavi Foundation. That background makes Marvi arguably one of the most influential men in Iranian politics.
