Celebrating Business Leadership

Top CEOs in the GCC


April 5, 2016 - The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi, Dubai, UAE

ABOUT US
Top CEO is a red carpet awards ceremony to celebrate the achievements of Top CEOs in the GCC. Organized by TRENDS magazine and INSEAD business school, the Top CEO Awards target the region’s most affluent people, CEOs, CMOs, Presidents and VPs. Top CEO is the only regional ranking based on the financial statements of publicly listed companies. It is an award ceremony to celebrate the achievement of the region’s top players in the market, making Top CEO the most credible and transparent awards in the region.
CONFERENCE
The Top CEO Conference is an open discussion between thought leaders, executives and officials. Its purpose is to bring global issues – specifically, disruption – into a regional context, helping executives and leaders look at the possible impact of such issues and consider the best ways to take their organizations forward, while taking advantage of the coming transformations. The conference’s format will comprise both on-record and off-record sessions, allowing delegates to discuss and exchange ideas freely.
AWARDS
The awards function will be organized to honor business leaders of the GCC region. The Top CEO list also looks into the transparency of a company. All of the companies listed on GCC stock exchanges are evaluated. On April 5, the 100 best-performing companies and CEOs will be announced. Mediaquest’s Top CEO Awards are distinctive in the GCC region because only the CEOs of listed companies are eligible. The awards are based on the companies’ financials; furthermore, the process is transparent and audited. TRENDS is also working closely with INSEAD to ensure that the formula is the most accurate and also with Hawkamah to ensure that corporate governance and disclosure criteria form a part of the ranking.

MODUS OPERANDI

Who is ranked

Only the firms listed on the stock exchanges of Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait and Oman are eligible for the ranking. The leaders or the CEOs of the listed firms on the GCC bourses are ranked based on their company’s performance during the past fiscal year. All companies are evaluated.

Modus Operandi

Market reports are sourced from the GCC stock exchanges and parameters include revenues, earnings per share, profits, growth and corporate governance (transparency, timely submission of financial reports to the regulators and communication with shareholders). The ranking is finalized on the basis of hard statistics and numbers readily available to any researcher. This method makes the TRENDS and INSEAD’s Top CEO list the most transparent and unbiased in the region.
