Mohammed Jamil Berro, CEO of Al Hilal Bank, was bestowed the Golden Order of Merit in Wise Banking Management at the 2012 Tatweej Academy Excellence Awards held recently at the Armani Hotel in Dubai’s Burj Khalifa.
The prestigious Tatweej awards ceremony honors prominent officials, business figures, civilians and organizations for their outstanding contributions to Arab business and society. The event also provides an annual forum for Arab institutions and companies to exchange knowledge, strengthen cooperation, and foster excellence. This year’s second edition was held under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai.
H.E. Humaid Mohammed Obaid Al Qatami, the UAE’s Minister of Education, personally handed over the award to Berro. Al Hilal’s CEO was commended along with other business luminaries for adhering to international management standards, sustaining exceptional working environments, providing world-class services, and driving organizational growth.
“This is a great honor not only for me but more importantly for Al Hilal Bank which has been a model of banking excellence and innovation locally and regionally. We hope to influence more people and organizations in the Arab region to embrace excellence as an important element and requisite goal in everything they plan and do,” said Berro.
