The 14th edition of Business Review Awards Gala, BR’s flagship event that recognizes outstanding achievements in the business community, will take place on March 4. We want to highlight the 14 categories in which the independent jury will select the winners for their exceptional performance in 2018.

This year, we’re splitting the Best Business Leader category into two sub-categories: Best CEO of Large Companies & Best CEO of SMEsThe award seeks to recognize remarkable achievements of business people that go above and beyond their daily roles and responsibilities as head of companies, local or international.

Last year’s Business Leader of the Year was Banca Transilvania CEO Omer Tetik, who guided the bank through major progress achievements across all business lines.
