This was announced by the International Business Awards (IBAs) of Stevie Awards which are the world’s premier business awards program giving recognition to the notable contributions of different organizations and professionals in different countries. The 2023 IBAs received entries from organizations in 61 nations and territories and were judged by more than 230 professionals worldwide.
Ron Jabal, PAGEONE Group Chairman and CEO also won the prestigious Thought Leader of the Year (Business Services) and Executive of the Year in the Advertising and Marketing Management category.
