Unilever Executive named Top Asian Business Leader
Harish Manwani, President of Unilever Asia and AMET (Africa, Middle East, Turkey) operations has received the prestigious CNBC Asia Business Leader of the Year award for 2008. The ceremony was recently held at the South Korean capital, Seoul hosted by business news network CNBC.
The award was presented for effectively capitalizing on global trends and leveraging the global scale of Unilever to deliver accelerated strong growth while significantly increasing profitability in Asia / Africa for the Company. This is largely attributable to Manwani’s ability to align and motivate staff to a common agenda. He has led the way in retaining loyal customers, helping Unilever to remain market leaders in almost every key category. His innovative, visionary leadership has helped build a strong core of local management teams across the 43 operating companies under the Unilever umbrella.
Manwani started his career with Hindustan Unilever Limited in 1976 and has been part of several international assignments for the company, including UK and Latin America. He is also part of the Unilever Executive Committee that runs Unilever's worldwide operations.
