Finance Monthly recently gave its CEO Award for 2014 to Conax CEO, Morten Solbakken.
The award recognises an extraordinary individual who has shown the strategic foresight and leadership to deliver superior performance over the past 12 months, effectively managed all key stakeholders and prepared the organisation for the next phase of growth, and in the process, helped create an enduring organisation which has had a deep beneficial impact on a wider community and society at large.
“This is a recognition of our entire organisation,” said Solbakken. “It is my team’s dedication to, and excellent execution of, our repositioning strategy that has cemented the base on which we will now further develop, under new ownership.”
Solbakken’s award comes a few months after the Kudelski Group acquired Conax from telecoms provider Telenor.
“The success of every organisation is down to the depth of talent that it is able to attract and the ability of a chief executive officer to deliver commercial success by unlocking that talent,” said Finance Monthly editor-in-chief Mark Palmer in a press release. “The CEOs listed within Finance Monthly’s CEO Awards publication are proven corporate leaders who deliver results and have achieved considerable success in their respective sectors.”
