A distinguished panel of judges will decide the final winners after going through the nominations. The nomination is open now.
The awards will be given in four categories – ‘CEO of The Year 2020 in Financial Sector (banking and non-banking financial institutions), ‘CEO of The Year 2020 in FMCG Sector’, ‘CEO of The Year 2020 in RMG Sector’, and ‘CEO of The Year 2020 in Large Manufacturing Sector’.
“The CEOs are the unsung heroes of the country’s phenomenal growth. We have taken this humble initiative to honour them and thus celebrate Bangladesh’s success,” Zakaria Masud, Editor and Publisher of Colors, told the press conference. Colors’ Advisory Editor Ziaul Karim and Head of Marketing Lucky Begum were also present.
“We think they are the role models for the next generation of CEOs,” said Zakaria Masud, adding that the awards are going to be distributed at a time when Bangladesh is ready to celebrate its 50th year of independence.
