CEO Awards 2023

The most successful CEOs continually adapt, inspire, and persevere to ensure their businesses thrive and survive. These traits have become even more apparent during recent times, and we feel that now more than ever business leaders should be commended and spotlighted for their extraordinary efforts.

CEO Magazine Srilanka is therefore proud to host the CEO Magazine Awards for a fourth consecutive year and celebrate the CEOs who have shown unmatched tenacity and dedication to their business and colleagues over the past year.

Many businesses have seen dramatic shifts in work culture across the past 12 months, such as increased reliance on the digital workplace and home working alongside an increasing pressure to make sustainable changes and net-zero commitments. Successful CEOs will have risen to meet these challenges with decisive action and a forward-thinking approach, ensuring that their employees and colleagues thrive in a productive, positive, and sustainably minded workplace.

Our merit-based research process ensures that nominees are assessed based on their accomplishments, reputation, and ability to illustrate commitment to their missions and values in business. To determine our winners, the CEO Magazine team will gather information independently from a variety of publicly accessible sources to be assessed by our panel alongside any material supplied by a nominating party or the nominee themselves.

Successful awardees will achieve welcome recognition for their efforts and will be able to utilize the CEO Magazine Srilanka brand to spread the news of their success to our global network of 100,000+ leading CEOs!

Researching our nominees

The CEO Magazine Srilanka team work ardently to identify great business leaders, driving many of the nominations themselves. We also encourage external nominations via the subscribers of the magazine, online visitors, social media followers, clients and wider circulation. Nominating parties are invited to put forward either CEOs of third-party businesses whom they hold in high regard, or the CEO of the business which they are a part of.

Shortlisting our nominees

All nominees are formally requested to accept their nomination. Should any firm or individual rather decline at this point, they are simply taken out of the running. Those formally accepting are given the opportunity to submit additional materials in support of their nomination. Although there is no obligation to complete and supply material, we have found that many nominees value this stage, in the
process, as much as our research team do.

Evaluating nominees

Our dedicated research team will assess all information presented to them. The team gather information independently from a variety of publicly accessible
sources, which are assessed alongside any material supplied by a nominating party or the nominee themselves. The research team casts their final judgment,
based on various criteria such as: business performance whilst the CEO has been in the position, any dramatic or positive change within the business since
the CEO took the helm, feedback from any stakeholders during this time and any new innovations within the timeframe.

Our lucky winners

Once winners are selected, they are personally notified before any public announcement is made, allowing time for any communications throughout the
wider business and the coordination of marketing strategies. Unfortunately, not everyone can be a winner; however, all who take part are encouraged to come
back next year. Once the press embargo is lifted, details of our award winners will be made public via the website, award winners’ magazine and subscriber

Share the exciting news

We are prepared to offer a range of promotional packages and items to winners in the CEO Magazine Awards, which vary from inclusion in the free-of-charge
winners’ directory, to trophies, content in our magazine and on our website.

We encourage all winners to publicly announce their win independently in order to gain maximum exposure for them personally and for their business.
Announcements via company websites, social media, via publicly released press releases, and through local and national press are all great ways of maximizing the exposure which can be gained from such a great achievement.
