The Lifetime Achievement Award at the CW Qatar Awards 2012 went to H.E. Khalifa Ali Al Hitmi. A total of 13 awards were presented at the high-profile dinner held at the Grand Hyatt in Doha on Monday 11 September, attended by 300 people.

Hyder Consulting country manager Maher Chatila presented the award, which was collected on H.E. Al Hitmi's behalf by ETA Star Group's Qatar operations directors AK Saksena and KS Shah Ali.

The judges said: "Tonight's Lifetime Achievement Award goes to someone who was investing in Qatar long before the country had seriously engaged the international community.

"Establishing a real-estate company in 1963, his company owns and operates numerous prestigious properties throughout Qatar.

"Having provided a consistent level of dynamic and strong leadership, he was also elected as the head of the Qatar Council, consulting for over 23 years."

Saksena commented that H.E. Al Hitmi was "a well-known and inspirational figure in the industry who inspired everybody through his example of excellence."
