There are a lot of people that I would like to thank from my heart, because without them, this would have not been possible. To all my Bosses and senior colleagues, team members, office assistants, colleagues and friends who have taught me, guided / mentored me, pushed me and walked with me, this is because of them. Above all my family members –my wife, my daughter who has been rock solid, stood by me during tough times, kept me positive, encouraged me to move forward. I owe it to them too. My parents' blessings would always be there.
And nevertheless, Rula Awards, thank you for recognizing my work and efforts for the last 23 years, and let me take this as a motivation to do better and help businesses grow and achieve their vision and mission.
Thank you all once again.
