- 5 - Hello and welcome to the 2022 edition of the CEO Today Middle East Awards! Year upon year, the CEO Today Middle East Awards celebrate excellence, dedication and innovative thinking across all key business sectors and industries in the Middle East, recognising the most inspiring leaders at the helm of the region’s most successful companies. As a result of higher oil prices and a stronger global economic environment, the Middle East returned to stable growth and enjoyed a positive economic rebound in 2021. This is why CEO Today is immensely proud to be able to provide a platform that recognises the CEOs and business leaders who have worked tirelessly, not just over the past 12 months, to make this growth possible. Congratulations to all of our winners!
