    Asian Business Leaders Award Dinner 2015

    Nazir Razak, Chairman of CIMB Group, will receive the prestigious Asia House Asian Business Leaders Award at our annual Gala Award Dinner to be held at The Banqueting House, Whitehall on 13, October 2015.

    Asia House presents this annual Award to those individuals who exemplify the concept of the ‘Servant Leader’. This Award highlights the links between economic success, professional excellence, moral leadership and service to society.

    Mr Razak was selected as the recipient of this year’s Award in recognition of his achievements over the course of his 26-year tenure at CIMB Group, a leading ASEAN universal bank, headquartered in Malaysia.

    The Rt Hon Hugo Swire MP, Minister of State at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, will deliver keynote remarks on behalf of HM Government. Tony Fernandes, Group CEO of AirAsia, will also speak at the dinner.

    Mr Razak spearheaded the CIMB Group’s transformation from a boutique Malaysian investment bank to Malaysia’s second-largest financial services group, the fifth largest universal bank in ASEAN, the largest Asia Pacific-based investment bank, and one of the world’s largest Islamic banks.

    CIMB Group has also donated more than RM100 million (US$28 million) to the CIMB Foundation, the corporate responsibility and philanthropic platform of CIMB Group as seed funding.

    We invite you to support our annual Asia House Asian Business Leaders Award Gala Dinner. The Gala Evening celebrates the enormous social impact of commercial enterprise which, at its best, promotes values of leadership and service that can be felt far beyond the boardroom. Tremendous opportunities for social change are created by business leaders through these shared values. By recognising individuals who embody the ‘Servant Leader’ ideal, we seek to encourage widespread recognition and adoption of these values among the global business community.

    The evening also provides an opportunity to join us in celebrating the vital work of Asia House as well as helping to deliver our mission to bring the UK and Asia closer through our pioneering activities in business, policy and culture.

    Funds raised from the dinner contribute directly towards the success of our programmes, the highlights of which include our conferences, policy briefings, film and literature festivals.

    Previous recipients of the ABLA include Ho Ching, Executive Director and CEO of Temasek; Azim Premji, Chairman of Wipro; Lubna Olayan, CEO of the Olayan Financing Company; Ratan Tata, Chairman of Tata Group; Vikram Singh Mehta, Chairman of Shell India; and Jack Ma, Chairman and Founder of Alibaba.com.

    The Rt Hon Hugo Swire MP, Minister of State at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office will deliver keynote remarks on behalf of HM Government.
