His citation and reasoning behind this award:
“In any society the presence of highly successful figures able to create and exercise a wealth of power and influence is a fundamental necessity.
These individuals are leaders, able to steer opinion and action towards the most positive possible outcomes in economic, social or cultural contexts. They are people who, either through position or personality exercise a significant power that influences events and sets parameters in the conduct of their organisation, the climate of political debate and the shaping of new ideas.
The Power 100 recognises the most influential young trailblazers internationally; whose exceptional work makes an enormous and essential contribution to the wealth, health and intellectual well-being of their respective countries.”
