BankDhofar receives Forbes Middle East award
Celebrating almost three decades of a successful business journey that has been transforming and shaping the finance and banking industry in the Sultanate of Oman, BankDhofar has received the ‘Most Successful Companies in Oman Award’ by Forbes Middle East.
The award was received by Hussain Ali Ibrahim al Lawati, acting chief retail banking officer at BankDhofar, during an event that was held recently at W Muscat hotel under the auspices of H E Talal bin Sulaiman al Rahbi, Deputy Secretary General of the Supreme Council for Planning, and was attended by top business leaders and invited officials from private companies and government entities.
Taking Forbes Middle East’s exclusive events style to Muscat for the first time, the awarding ceremony aimed at recognising Oman’s most influential businesses that led the growth and the diversification of the sultanate’s economy and positively contributed to boosting the national GDP by supporting other contributors in various sectors.
The evaluation criteria of the listed companies were based on their financial statements and official disclosures by Muscat Securities Market, focusing on elements like Assets, Revenues, Profits and Market Cap.
Upon receiving the award, Lawati reaffirmed the bank’s commitment to continuously boost its role as a key player in the Omani financial market and a main contributor to the growth and development of the national economy.
“Since the inception of BankDhofar, we strongly believed in making an impact. We worked internally and externally to stand out and to add value in everything we do. Despite the market challenges and the fiercely competitive and dynamic business environment in which we operate, we set our vision clear and we laid out a solid roadmap to achieve our strategic goals and reach where we are today.
“I am very proud to see BankDhofar on top list of most influential companies in Oman, and I appreciate the efforts by Forbes Middle East which aimed at shedding light on the key market players in the Omani economy.”
