The inaugural 2016 European Executive of the Year Awards is set to be one of the most important and prestigious events on the calendar for hundreds of leading European executives. The awards themselves do not focus on a company’s success, as many do, but the spotlight is on the success of individuals who make the corporations tick – namely senior executives such as CEOs, Managing Directors, Directors, and other corporate-level management. The awards recognise the achievements of individual executives over the previous year and the contributions they have made to their companies and industry.

The 2016 European Executive of the Year Awards, to be held on 14 April, 2016, at the Grand Hôtel in Stockholm, Sweden, is anticipated to attract more than 350 guests and nominees from Europe’s most respected and innovative companies.
