Zain Group CEO Scott Gegenheimer has been awarded the CEO of the Year award at the TMT Finance MENA 2014 Awards.

Gegenheimer was honoured with the award in recognition of a number of achievements at Zain Group, including enhancing the operating model to create synergies between the group companies, expansion of the senior management and initiatives to improve commercial prospects, and increased disclosure and transparency.

The awards judges noted: “It is clear to see the demonstrable impact that Mr Gegenheimer has had on Zain Group in the last 12 months, as the company looks to continue growing and succeeding in a hyper-competitive environment. The substantial investments the company is making in 4G infrastructure and customer experience management are commendable, and we believe through Mr. Gegenheimer’s vision and enthusiasm, further gains are set to be achieved by the company.”

Gegeheimer commented: “I appreciate the judging panel’s recognition. When I arrived at the company at the end of 2012, it was clear it had incredible assets in place including its staff, network, footprint, and brand. What was necessary was to focus and enhance these assets in order to operate them at their maximum effectiveness, and I believe our strategy will continue to yield positive results.”
