LONDON, Dec. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Though not as tumultuous as last year, 2018 still brought its own set of challenges. With prospects diverging across major economies, while financial market pressures have hit emerging economies, global growth is expected to settle at 3.7 percent, according to the IMF’s recent revision. Against this backdrop, trade tensions have had adverse effects on global trade growth, impacting jobs and living conditions for low-income households in particular. The uncertainty of recent years gone by has thus continued for many companies.

It is in these moments of instability that bold and decisive leadership is needed more than ever, which European CEO has celebrated in its latest awards.

Each year the magazine counts down the top 100 companies and business leaders over the year, looking specifically for examples of strong strategy and commitment to corporate governance. European CEO examines a range of sectors, such as transportation, mining, apparel, brokerage and agriculture, among other industries, looking for the best contenders in each category.

Some of the CEOs the magazine has recognised include Noel Moran, who has been named Entrepreneur of the Year in the Payment Solutions Industry (Western Europe). Moran was noted for his ability to innovate and technological prowess in a marketplace that constantly evolves. Filippo Bosco was also recognised for his leadership as CEO of BluSense Diagnostics – a company that aims to provide an accurate and low-cost blood testing system for infectious diseases.

Other winners include Zurich-based Paracelsus Medical clinic, which is renowned for its luxury recovery services. It tailors all of its programmes to the individual needs of its patients, and offers them a relaxed space in which to heal. Another organisation that has been honoured is OctaFX, a forex broker that has been recognised for the secure and cost-effective trading environment it offers.
