Golder Global’s president and CEO Hisham Mahmoud was honoured as the CEO of the Year by the Environmental Financial Consulting Group (EFCG) for demonstrating outstanding leadership in the industry.
Mahmoud was presented the award at the 29th annual EFCG CEO Conference held in New York City.
Founded in 1990, EFCG is an advisory and financial consulting firm focused exclusively on the Architecture, Engineering / Consulting, and Construction industry (A/E/C). They help companies become more business and financially efficient so that they can improve global infrastructure and sustainability,
“We selected Dr. Mahmoud based upon his extraordinary leadership in the key executive positions he has held over the last two decades. Specifically, his leadership and impact on Golder’s performance, since he took over three years ago as the company’s first externally-appointed CEO, has been nothing short of tremendous, creating a lot of value in a short period of time,” said Paul Zofnass, EFCG President.
“While it is easy to focus solely on the financial success of the business, we realize that such performance improvement is impossible without significant cultural alignment, which in our view only comes from strong leadership, starting with the CEO.”
