Colm McLoughlin, Dubai Duty Free’s Executive Vice Chairman and CEO, has received The BURJ CEO Lifetime Achievement Award.

The award was personally presented by Tariq Nizami, Founder and CEO of CEO Clubs Network Worldwide.

On receiving his award, McLoughlin said: “I was unable to attend the BURJ CEO awards ceremony in Shenzhen, but I am delighted to have been considered for this Lifetime Achievement Award and I am proud to join a list of previous winners. Thanks to Tariq for personally presenting the award in Dubai.”

McLoughlin was honored for his achievements and leadership skills demonstrated during his distinguished career with Dubai Duty Free, which spans 35 years.

The operation, which is the single largest airport retailer in the world in terms of turnover, is expected to achieve sales of US$2 billion in 2018.

Hosted by CEO Clubs Network Worldwide and held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Juma Bin Maktoum Juma Al Maktoum, the awards in Shenzhen honored top global CEOs and organizations in different categories and industries.

A judging panel composed of respected executives, entrepreneurs, innovators and business educators selected the winners based on their achievements and outstanding contributions to business.

In 2017, McLoughlin received the Global Burj CEO of the Year award, while in 2016 the operation was awarded the Best Global Services award in a ceremony held in Washington DC, US.
