A Filipina CEO based in Dubai has joined the elite list of business leaders who won the prestigious Middle East Economic Digest (MEED) Awards.

Dr. Karen Remo, CEO and Co-Founder of New Perspective Media (NPM) Group, a leading 360-degree media, marketing and communications agency, bagged the MEED Awards’ ‘Female Leader of the Year’ title last November 27 at Ritz Carlton-Dubai International Financial Centre in Dubai, UAE.

Her company is the publisher of The Filipino Times, the largest Filipino newspaper in the UAE and the biggest digital platform for the Filipino in the whole Middle East.

She is also the Managing Editor of 999 Magazine, the official publication of the UAE Ministry of Interior, which NPM publishes on behalf of the Ministry.

With the ‘Female Leader of the Year’ recognition — one of the highest distinctions in the MEED Awards — the Filipina CEO has raised the Philippine flag in the international business landscape, a ground-breaking achievement and accolade for a Filipino national in the GCC.

The award was presented by Sultan Alshaali, Executive Director, Government Accelerators at the UAE Prime Minister’s Office.

More than 250 nominations have been received for this award-giving body this year, making this edition the most competitive since its inception.

Dr. Remo was conferred with the accolade due to her “indomitable entrepreneurial spirit that allowed her to launch impressive portfolio as part of the NPM Group”. The Awards stated: “The judges commended her [Dr. Remo] for her innovative methods that enabled the growth of her business across geographies and culminated in satisfied customers. Additionally, Dr. Karen’s approaches to align with the sustainable development goals as well as the clearly articulated initiatives that have been taken for the Filipino community make her an inspirational leader indeed.”

The MEED Awards recognizes successful organisations and accomplished individuals that have helped shape the diversification of the GCC economies. It empowers them to set the benchmark for the best practices and sustainable initiatives in the region.
