CEO Middle East - - CONTENTS -

AT A SPE­CIAL AWARDS GALA LAST MONTH, WE HON­ORED THE MOST RE­SILIENT LEAD­ERS ACROSS THE RE­GIONAL ECON­OMY

DE­SPITE GLOBAL AND RE­GIONAL UN­CER­TAINTY, THE GCC’S ECONOMIES re­main fun­da­men­tally strong and sta­ble. The fact wouldn’t be pos­si­ble with­out the dy­namism and ded­i­ca­tion of the re­gion’s top chief ex­ec­u­tives.

On the evening of 26 Septem­ber, at an ex­clu­sive gala at Dubai’s Rixos Pre­mium Jumeirah Beach, the Gulf’s busi­ness com­mu­nity gath­ered to recog­nise these par­a­digms of lead­er­ship at the 15th CEO Mid­dle East Awards. Across 19 sectors, we high­lighted the high­est achiev­ers in avi­a­tion, hos­pi­tal­ity, tech­nol­ogy, en­ergy, real es­tate, en­ter­tain­ment and more.

To ar­rive at the list of win­ners, a panel, com­prised of the CEO Mid­dle East and Ara­bian Busi­ness teams, went through a longlist of over 400 of names. This was honed down to a short­list of 50 names who were all wor­thy of ac­co­lade. We then went over this list again, scru­ti­n­is­ing their achieve­ments over the year, be­fore de­cid­ing on a win­ner in each cat­e­gory.

It was of­ten a close call, and wher­ever there was a tie in votes, we would vote again – some­times af­ter heated de­bate.

The fi­nal list com­prises exc­u­tives who dis­play ex­em­plary lead­er­ship, dy­namic man­age­ment, and inspire with the abil­ity to dream big.
