CEO Middle East Awards 2023

On December 13, 2023, the CEO Middle East Awards 2023 ceremony took place, recognising the achievements of top industry leaders from finance to aviation, cybersecurity, logistics, and many other sectors. What was I thinking about as I stood on stage at this prestigious ceremony and accepted the CEO of the Year Award in the Innovation category? Well, I thought about the fact that awarding a team leader means recognising an incredibly cool and strong team, as well as a dedicated and truly involved community behind them. So, this is our award.

Receiving the CEO Middle East Award is the best recognition of my achievements as a leader. That I have led our community to success over these 12 months, helped others and made a significant impact on the future and well-being of the people of the Middle East. I would like to note that I was one of over 200 candidates present at the award ceremony, and I won. Among others, representatives of Standard Chartered Bank, FIVE Hospitality, Bayut and RAK Properties also received their awards.

During the event, I met a huge number of outstanding experts from FinTech, real estate, healthcare and other industries. It was a wonderful evening in the company of great leaders. It was an honour to be invited to the CEO Middle East Awards, not to mention getting the award. But I’m sure this is not our last victory as a community!
