ISTANBULTurkey’s best performing CEOs have been awarded in an Istanbul ceremony organized by Harvard Business Review Turkey and KoçSistem Inc. The grand prize was awarded to Turkish Airlines CEO Temel Kotil, the magazine said in a written statement on Jan. 21.
Harvard Business Review Turkey brought together a special team to research more than a hundred companies with shares on stock exchanges, and the awards were given based on data collected from trusted national and international databases.
“In recent years there have been serious discussions on the performance of CEOs. Today, one has to evaluate CEOs from new criteria and perspectives. Our aim in this study is to bring forward the issue and support the CEOs on their hard trek,” said Serdar Turan, the chief editor of the Harvard Business Review Turkey.
Kotil received the Grand Prize this year, followed by Türk Traktör CEO Marco Votta and Otokar CEO Ahmet Serdar Görgüç, according to the statement.
Nine leading senior executives were also named best performing CEOs in their respective fields of business including energy, transport infrastructure, services, banking, finance, and automotive.
