Therefore, it brings me great personal pride to be titled as the ‘Finance Professional of the Year’ and be named second in the ‘Revolutionary CFO of the Year’. I take this opportunity to express my gratitude to Dr. Maher for structuring an environment that breeds high levels of productivity and a need for constant success.
