Abu Dhabi, July 16, 2017- Osama Abdel-Raouf Abdeen, CEO of Abu Dhabi National Takaful Co. PSC (ADNTC), the leading Takaful operator in the GCC. He has been named among the GCC's 100 Best CEOs at the Top CEO Awards for 2017 organized by Mediaquest.

The elite roster of top-performing CEOs in the Gulf is compiled annually by Mediaquest's TRENDS magazine, the leading magazine on Arab affairs in the MENA region, in association with world-renowned business school INSEAD. The criteria for the selection process were set by independent financial and governance experts and were based on financial factors including profits, revenues, assets, company size, earnings per share, corporate governance and transparency, market capitalization, and market values. Following comprehensive analyses of listed companies in the GCC stock exchange, 100 honorees were chosen from which 17 are from the insurance field, with six of them representing UAE-based companies. 

Abdeen has been honored for his exceptional role in driving ADNTC's sustained profitable growth and helping uplift its regional position as a leading Takaful operator and the only one worldwide with an A- (excellent) financial strength rating from AM Best. He joined ADNTC in 2010, bringing with him more than 24 years of experience in multicultural work environments across multiple jurisdictions, backed by strong operational management expertise. Throughout his career, Osama has contributed immensely to the growth of the emerging insurance markets in the Middle East and has positively impacted the progression of talented insurance professionals in the region working under his leadership. He was the first employee hired by the American International Group (AIG) general insurance in 1999 in the UAE. He assumed a variety of important roles during his tenure with AIG (1999-2010).

He has been directly involved in several acquisitions, geographic expansions and market penetration projects, with a proven track record in leadership and extensive technical insurance knowledge that has made him a prominent industry figure. 

After joining Abu Dhabi National Takaful Company in 2010, he successfully led the company to evolve into a highly profitable and recognized Takaful operator. 

From 2010 to 2016, and despite prevailing market conditions, ADNTC reported consistent annual growth in net profits (from AED 2.6 to AED 48.4 million) and shareholder's equity (from AED 106 to AED 271 million) marking seven consecutive years of sustained superior performance across key financial and non-financial performance indicators. In addition, the company announced a 12 per cent increase in net profits to AED 20.1 million in Q1 2017.

Abdeen commented: “I am very honored to receive this prestigious, reliable and independent award, and I would like to give due credit to ADNTC's distinguished board members and highly skilled team who all share the vision of providing the best Takaful products and services. We continue to enjoy an outstanding market performance through our focus on demonstrating the viability of the Takaful concept as a profitable business model. ADNTC remains committed to focusing on sound underwriting, seamless customer service, product innovation, sound corporate governance and transparency for the good of our organization, our partners, customers, and our globally-expanding industry.”
