Audi partners with Al Mar'a Excellence Awards to recognize achievements of Omani women

Audi Oman, represented by Wattayah Motors, is pleased to partner with Al Mar’a to present the second edition of the annual Al Mar’a Excellence Awards. These awards are a platform to acknowledge the accomplishments and entrepreneurial zeal of women in the Sultanate.

Launched in 2011, the Al Mar’a Excellence Awards aim to recognise and encourage Omani women who have conquered the odds and have reached challenging positions in diverse areas like business, government, industry, education and other relevant fields.

Discussing the strategic partnership, Abdel Karim Awwad, National Sales and Marketing Manager of Audi Oman, said, “The Al Mar’a Excellence Awards are a unique initiative to recognize significant contributions by Omani women. Partnering with them is an excellent way of showing our support for these women who deserve a forum wherein their achievements can be rewarded. As a brand that is committed to innovation and excellence, we are proud to support the distinction of Omani women in every sphere of life.”

The second edition of the awards will be an even wider-format event. The awards range across 12 categories, namely: Corporate Leadership, Fashion Design, Performing Arts, Fine Arts, Educational Services, Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Health Services, Science and Industry, Technology, Sports, Petroleum Services and Social Responsibility. Apart from these, two women will also be the recipient of the prestigious Woman of the Year and Most Promising Woman of the Year Awards. The final ranking process will be appraised by Ernst & Young and winners will be announced at a glittering gala to be held at Crowne Plaza Muscat Gardens on Sunday - October 7, 2012.

Audi Oman recognises the importance of developing Omani talent for the future.In line with this thought, they have recently unveiled their new strategic training programs for employees and potential recruits. It is, hence all the more appropriate to associate with the Al Mar’a Excellence Awards which felicitates outstanding Omani businesswomen or professionals who have rendered unparalleled service as Oman’s ambassadors. As the fastest growing premium brand in the Middle East, it is only fitting that Audi is associated with these prestigious awards
