Colors, one of the leading lifestyle and monthly business publications in Bangladesh, will recognise contributions of top business executives to the country’s development and celebrate their success through an award ceremony early next year.
The Colors CEO of the Year 2020 will felicitate the deserving at InterContinental Dhaka in April, Zakaria Masud, editor and publisher of the magazine, announced at a press conference in Economic Reporters’ Forum in Dhaka yesterday.
Five CEOs will be awarded under four categories: banking and non-banking financial institutions, fast-moving consumer goods, readymade garments and large manufacturing.
“The CEOs are the unsung heroes of the country’s phenomenal growth. We think that they are the role models for the next generation of CEOs. That’s why we have taken this humble initiative to honour them and thus celebrate Bangladesh’s success,” Masud said.
He said they were accepting suggestions for nominations. Candidates themselves can also directly apply for any of the awards, said Colors’ Advisory Editor Ziaul Karim.
A distinguished panel of judges will decide the final winners after going through the nominations.
Lucky Begum, head of marketing and operations of Colors, was also present at the media briefing.
