Shurooq CEO receives top honors at Burj CEO Awards
The Middle East CEO of the Year Award, given out by the Burj CEO Awards, was presented to Marwan Al Sarkal, CEO Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq).

The awards ceremony was hosted in Washington, D.C., and recognizes the most successful organizations and their CEOs in a variety of business sectors around the globe.

Al Sarkal was recognized for his continuous efforts and noteworthy contribution to creating Shurooq's effective strategies that work to reinforce Sharjah's position in international business, trade and investment. Al Sarkal's leadership has resulted in Shurooq developing several top tourist and get-a-way destinations in the area.

Al Sarkal was congratulated by Sheikha Bodour bint Sultan Al Qasimi, chairperson of the Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) for his prestigious award and for playing such a vital role in creating a positive and success business model within Shurooq and in the community.

“We are extremely proud of Shurooq's management excellence, which has reflected positively on the teamwork, quality of performance, distinctive management skills and excellent delivery of projects and services,” Al Qasimi said. “The management's success begins from within the organization itself, which is represented in the internal organizing and corporate development.”

“Such awards are the fruit of the corporate strategy embraced by Shurooq since its establishment -- an approach based on the management's attention and concentration on capacity building of its human resources, as well as its confidence in the ability of its in-house manpower to make a big difference and leave a positive impact at their workplace and posts in Sharjah as well as the rest of the UAE,” Bodour said.

Marwan Al Sarkal showed gratitude to the organizers of the Burj CEO Awards for honoring him as the recipient of the desirable award.

“The emirate of Sharjah has equipped its national youth with all the potential and tools that enable them to excel and innovate, gain high leadership skills and realize accomplishments,” he said. “Winning such a prestigious global accolade is a success for the Emirate of Sharjah as a whole. The award will serve as an incentive that will inspire me to do my utmost to support Sharjah's economic growth, and solidify its internationally acclaimed position as a global business and investment hub.”

Other noteworthy companies that were recognized with the award in different categories included the Covenant Bank for Women (Tanzania), DP World, Emirates Airline, Dubai Duty Free, Facebook, HP, Hollywood Studios, Ras Al Khaimah Free Zone, and the National Bank of Abu Dhabi.
