CELEBRATING BUSINESS LEADERSHIP
TRANSFORMING THE ARAB WORLD THROUGH UNIQUE INSIGHTS FROM BUSINESS AND POLITICAL LEADERS
A red carpet awards ceremony celebrating achievements of Top CEOs in the GCC.
Organized by TRENDS magazine and INSEAD business school, the Top CEO Awards targets
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.
The Top CEO Conference is an open discussion among 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.
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.
At the Top CEO awards ceremony every year, 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.
