Over 200 top finance professionals gathered at the MENA CFO Awards organised as part of the CFO Strategies Forum MENA by Naseba. On the occasion, the Middle East and Africa region’s leading chief financial officers and their teams were honoured for their work in driving digital change in the CFO role.
Muhammad Aslam Sooltangos was honored with second place in the “Emerging CFO of the Year” Award at the annual Naseba MENA CFO Strategies Forum that took place this past October at the Taj Hotel in Dubai. This award celebrates notable Chief Financial Officers in the Middle East and North Africa Region (MENA) who have proven their innovative use of Information Technology, excelled in compliance with relevant laws, regulations, contractual agreements and policies, and proved strong governance over their company’s operational excellence.
Yacoub Sidya, MSS and Phoenix Companies CEO states, “It’s gratifying to be acknowledged for this award – what Aslam has achieved is a win for our entire organization. Our company pivots on strong integrity…abiding by all laws…always doing the right thing no matter the cost. We have always prided ourselves in those values. Aslam is the crux of that postulate, and the crux of the financial health of our companies. I am so proud of him.”
Aslam Sooltangos credits his team for his success, “It’s been wonderful journey and I have my MSS and Phoenix colleagues to thank for their teamwork, dedication, and follow through of policies I ask them to implement. My role as CFO is very multifaceted. I’m a strategist, a number cruncher, a strategic advisor, a catalyser for change and innovation.
