“It was inspiring to see Murad Al-Katib, CEO of AGT Food, named Ernst & Young’s 2017 World Entrepreneur of the Year. Al-Katib, a master of supply-chain innovation, was recognized not only for building one of the world’s largest vertically integrated agricultural supply chains, but also for his heroic humanitarian efforts to feed Syrian refugees.
Al-Katib’s story is particularly compelling because after 17 acquisitions, the majority of the original management teams still work with him – even after selling 100 percent of their businesses to AGT. He is the perfect example of a CEO who understands how to build a business by effectively communicating his purpose to employees, vendors and customers. The benefit? His employees are committed to him and excited to work by his side.”
