• Saud Salim Al Mazrouei Awarded Most Influential Leader of the Year

Saud Salim Al Mazrouei, Director of the Hamriyah Free Zone Authority (HFZA), has been awarded the “Most Influential Leader of the Year” award for his valuable contributions to empowering businesses and communities. The award came in recognition of his experience and distinct management of Hamriyah Free Zone, which led to making it one of the fastest developing free zones in the Middle East, delivering the finest services, facilities, and motivation to companies and investors from all over the world.

Al Mazrouei received the honor during the awards ceremony of the International Human Resource Conference (IHRC) 2022, which celebrated exemplary leadership in this field. Held recently in Dubai on the side lines of the IHRC themed “Metaverse – Transforming Human Capital Digitally”, the event was organized by Blue Ocean Corporation under the patronage of Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Tolerance and Coexistence.

HFZA director received an honorary shield from Dr. Sathya Menon, Group CEO of Blue Ocean Corporation, recently at the Free Zone headquarters, in the presence of Mohamed Al Ali, Group Vice Chairman of Blue Ocean Corporation, and several officials from both sides.

“This is a significant achievement for HFZA and its cadres. Thanks to the unlimited support by His Highness Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, HFZA has made major improvements in its services and facilities and developed its quality and efficiency to enrich the experience of its investors,” Al Mazrouei said.

“Furthermore, this recognition serves as a motivation for the free zone to maintain its success and enhance Sharjah’s position as a premier hub for businesses and innovative services. It also reflects HFZA’s strong presence as an important economic force having one of the highest rates of regional economic diversification,” Al Mazrouei added.

Al Mazrouei stressed that HFZA will spare no effort to deliver effective and sustainable services by developing innovative mechanisms based on the best and latest global standards. This has made it a preferred destination for foreign investors thanks to its ideal environment, world-class infrastructure, service and logistic facilities, and strategic location, easy access to various local, regional, and global markets, which allows foreign investors to double their investments and develop their business.”

An international jury of leading experts in many industrial disciplines evaluated the International Human Resource Conference awards, which honored the best HR practices and inspirational management strategies used by individuals and institutions. All of this was completely supervised by Blue Ocean Cooperation and the International Academy of Training, Education, Consulting, Talent Management, and Conferences.
