Investcorp founder honoured
Manama, June 2, 2013
Bahrain-based private equity firm Investcorp said its founder and chief executive Nemir Kirdar has won the 'Award for Outstanding Contribution to Financial Services in the Middle East' from Euromoney, a leading international publication.
This prestigious award recognises banking leaders in the region who have made significant contributions to the Middle East's financial services industry over the years.
The award was formally presented to Kirdar by Euromoney editor, Clive Horwood, during a special award ceremony held in Dubai and was attended by a select group of guests which included government officials, senior bankers and business leaders from across the region as well as key representatives of the international and regional media.
"I am truly honoured to accept this award, which I do on behalf of everyone at Investcorp," said Kirdar.
"These achievements have been made possible by the commitment, skills and professionalism of all our people, working together over the past 30 years. I would also like to pay tribute to the members of the board for their guidance as well as to our strategic partnership group and our shareholders and clients. The loyalty and support of all these groups from the early days have been critical to our success."
"Today, I am proud to say that Investcorp has emerged as a world-class institution and a champion for our region. With a talented management team in place, we believe we are poised for steady growth in the years ahead, both internationally and here in the region through the planned opening of new offices," Kirdar said.
