(MENAFN - Jordan Times) Ma'an News Agency and Radio has chosen Zain Levant and Jordan CEO Abdul Malek Al Jaber as one of the top five leading business figures in Palestine.
Ma'an said on the list along with Jaber were Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad, businessmen Munib and Sabih Al Masri and Omar Abdul-Razeq. Announcing the survey's results, Ma'an Director General Ra'ed Othman said participation in the online survey's 16 categories was beyond expectations, adding that half a million users cast their votes from around the world.
Jaber, who took over as CEO for Zain Levant and Jordan last July, has a long record of accomplishments in Palestine's economic sector, as well as in social services and development. Before joining Zain, Jaber served as Palestine Telecommunications Group Deputy Chairman and CEO (2003-2009), during which he supervised its restructuring in 2003 - a move which raised its profit from 15 million to 100 million in 2005.
During his tenure, Jaber laid the foundations for corporate social responsibility in Palestine through some of the most important initiatives and projects in support of education and increasing Internet penetration, and in support of excellence and creativity in the Palestinian society.
