The 2021 PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) CEO Survey has named Georgian businessman Mikhail Lomtadze, co-founder and CEO of Kaspi.kz, as Kazakhstan’s best CEO: the third year it has done so.
“Thank you to everyone for appreciating our work and to PwC for organizing the survey,” Lomtadze told Forbes. “This is another recognition of Kaspi.kz’s amazing management team, which continues to lead from the front, developing innovative mobile digital products that fulfill our mission to improve people’s everyday lives and play a major role in Kazakhstan’s digital transformation.”
In 2020, Kaspi.kz successfully completed its London IPO, firmly placing Kazakhstan on the global innovation map and helping to significantly increase the country’s attractiveness to international investors.
“We promise to continue surprising with innovative, technologically advanced products and services,” Lomtadze said.
PwC surveyed 71 CEOs from major Kazakh companies, active across numerous sectors of the economy. Respondents pointed to the successful IPO of Kaspi.kz, the professionalism of its management team, the company’s innovative technology, and the strategic vision of its CEO.
PwC has been conducting its CEO Survey worldwide for 24 years, and for the past nine in Kazakhstan. The main aim of the survey is to understand CEOs’ views on the global and national economic environment, as well as the opportunities and risks for future business development.
