The Leadership Award of the leading global brand medium, The Global Brands Magazine aims to identify and acknowledge the significance of exceptional service delivery and inspirational leadership. In 2016, Árpád Török, Chief Executive Officer of TriGranit was chosen to the Most Inspiring Real Estate CEO. Mr. Török’s professional achievements have been acknowledged by several independent mediums in the past, being named e.g. the CEO of the Year 2016 by Finance Monthly, or receiving the Industry Leadership Award by CIJ Magazine in 2011.
The Global Brands Award was established with the aim of honouring excellence in performance and rewarding Companies and Exceptional personalities across different sectors. The award honours companies and leaders who have performed extraordinarily well in the field of e.g. Finance, Education, Real Estate or Technology, and are given to acknowledge key players. This year’s leadership award winners include CEO’s of such prestigious companies like TATA Group, Lloyds Banking Group, UBS Group AG or the fashion brand Chanel.
Being chosen as the most inspiring real estate personality is a great honour and acknowledgment, as I personally think, that inspiration is a must for moving forward and reaching exceptional results both on personal and corporate level. This is, what TriGranit aims at, and both me and the whole company believes in – said Árpád Török, CEO of TriGranit.
Nominations are accepted from companies throughout the year across a wide range of categories. Nominations are adjudged by an independent external research agency, and beneath the nomination itself data was collected by the magazine’s team from different sources including third party data providers and annual reports.
