Foundation Holdings CEO wins top award

DUBAI, November 14, 2017

Abhishek Sharma, CEO of Foundation Holdings, has been named the ‘Emerging Indian CEO in the UAE’ at the UAE-India Economic Forum 2017 award ceremony held in Dubai recently.
Foundation Holdings is a strategic, global investment firm focused on building sustainable, industry-defining companies in the impactful sectors of healthcare, education and consumer across India and the GCC.
The corridor between the UAE and India continues to strengthen with trade between the two countries anticipated to hit $100 billion by 2020. 
The award recognises Sharma’s unwavering efforts within the healthcare, education and consumer sectors. Under his leadership, Foundation Holdings has completed two landmark initiatives in the past one year. In February 2017, the firm launched a joint venture with Bloom Holding, aimed at investing over Dh1 billion to create purpose-designed living communities for industry talents in the healthcare, education and services sectors. In September 2017, the firm transacted with Mediclinic Middle East (2nd largest emerging market healthcare provider) to acquire three best in class facilities, as a part of their initiatives to form a new healthcare platform aimed to accelerate value-based healthcare. 
Foundation Holdings is now focused on creating the largest value healthcare organisation in the UAE with a mission is to provide quality and affordable access to primary healthcare to an under-served segment of the market. This opportunity is geared towards creating a transformational platform for social impact and will touch the lives of one million people by 2022. 
“We are entering a golden age of healthcare across both India and the GCC. The UAE-India Economic Forum always does a terrific job of highlighting the bilateral benefits of increased collaboration between the two countries. At Foundation Holdings, we are focused on building sustainable industry-defining companies; therefore it was such an honour to be awarded as the Emerging Indian CEO in the UAE alongside industry leaders and business builders such as Dr B R Shetty, Kamal Vachani and the Landmark Group," Sharma said. 
Prior to setting up Foundation Holdings, Sharma played an integral role in the 2013 Al Noor Hospital transaction on the London Stock Exchange, a flagship transaction in the GCC, which was later voted as the best transaction in the Mena region for 2012-2013. - TradeArabia News Service
