ABN Productions pioneered the annual All Africa Business Leaders Awards (AABLA™) in partnership with CNBC Africa in 2011, after Founder and Vice Chairman of the ABN group Mr Rakesh Wahi attended the European business leader’s awards in 2009 and inspired by the recognition of European business leadership, decided to salute remarkable business leaders for their continuing commitment to excellence in Africa. In 2012 the awards grew into 3 regional segments, namely East Africa, Southern Africa and West Africa – with a grand finale to bring all regional winners together and to celebrate an overall victor. The awards ceremony and gala dinner is presented in a half-hour show broadcast across 48 countries in Africa.
Now celebrating its 7th year, the awards have become synonymous with recognising the best in business leadership on the African continent and continue to grow in boldness and stature.
