Etihad Aviation Group wins three awards at CIPS Middle East Awards

Posted 11 May 2017 · Add Comment

The Procurement and Supply Management team at Etihad Aviation Group (EAG) were the overall winners at the Chartered Institute of Purchasing Supply (CIPS) Middle East Awards, winning three awards including the prestigious accolade of the 'MENA Procurement and Supply Team of the Year.'

The winners were announced following the conclusion of the CIPS Middle East Conference on 9 May. In addition to the ‘Team of the Year’ award, the company also won awards for ‘Best Contribution to the Reputation of the Profession’ and ‘Best International Procurement Project’.

The team demonstrated to CIPS that it is continuing to rapidly evolve capabilities, relationships and effectiveness across all areas of procurement, bringing value to EAG not just through cost savings but also through reputational enhancement. Donations of surplus and obsolete items are made to the Red Crescent while development of local suppliers is made through an active involvement in the Khalifa Fund and the promotion of local SMEs.

Throughout 2016 the purchasing department also shared best procurement practise with organisations in the UAE including the Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre, Emirates Nuclear Energy, ADNOC and Al Futtaim Dubai.

Adil Al Mulla, vice president of procurement and supply management for EAG, said: “I’m delighted and proud that the performance and achievements of the team have again been recognised at the highest level in the MENA procurement profession.  

“EAG has become the only aviation business in the Middle East region to gain such recognition in the procurement field. The CIPS Award is the most prestigious recognition a company can achieve in the procurement and supply chain profession worldwide and is the benchmark against which all procurement departments are measured.”
