CW Oman Awards: Project Manager of the Year
Ahmed Zeinelabdin praised for dedication and commitment
Ahmed Zeinelabdin from Atkins Global was named Project Manager of the year at the Construction Week Oman Awards 2014 in the Grand Hyatt, Muscat, last night.
The award was presented to the person who has demonstrated their organisational ability, and contributed the most to a project's success, as well as helping to boost both operational performance and their own development.
And judges declared Zeinelabdin a clear winner on account of “his dedication to his firm’s clients and for an excellent level of commitment to delivering successful projects”.
Zeinelabdin, who has been project managing for the last seven years, said: "It is actually quite an interesting award for me because I’ve put a lot of effort into this and it’s nice to have something that is recognised by the industry locally.
"For me this is a milestone, and I just want to say that it is also due to the team work and the effort of my colleagues, not just me, but everyone working together to a common goal."
He added: "As a project manager you are playing with time, quality and budget – all of them you have to sort of mould them together and the trick is not to compromise one of them, and constantly monitoring these three parameters, so for me one of my things that makes my hair grey, is doing all of these things together."
Construction Week’s group sales manager Mark Palmer presented the award.
Ahmed Elhassan from Omran received a highly commended accolade.
Asif Inayat Saiyed, Majan Development Company; and MNR Gupta, Oman United Engineering Services, were also shortlisted in the category.
