#BusinessLeader2017: Sagicor's Byles takes Observer Business Leader Award for executive steward

KINGSTON, Jamaica — The Jamaica Observer Business Leader Award for executive steward was a short while ago presented to Richard Byles, chairman of the Sagicor Group.

Byles won the award from a field of 12 of Jamaica's top chief executive officers which Award Selection Committee Chairman Moses Jacksoin described as “an embarrassment of riches” and which gave the committe a tough time deciding.

“All 12 nominees for the Business Leader: Corporate Steward Award not only meet, but far exceed the most fundamental rule for consideration for this singular accolade: that first and foremost they must be the steward of a company or companies that have produced sustainable profits over time,” Jackson said.

Byles in accepting his award, noted that he was truly privileged to have been named as the winner as  anyone could have won.
