On Wednesday 20 April 2016, Proximus CEO Dominique Leroy was granted the 8th Leadership Award at the Leadership Congress in Brussels, in the presence of a large number of CEOs and directors of top-tier companies.
For the past eight years, LEAD-IN has been granting the Leadership Award to leaders “who, through sustained integrity, management abilities and inspirational leadership, have forged an exceptional career. This award is special recognition for a personality from the economic and industrial sector of society, who is a role model and also valorizes this socially.”
Dominique Leroy is the youngest winner and first woman to receive this recognition. The previous award winners were Luc De Bruyckere, Julien De Wilde, Herman Daems, Peter Piot, Paul Bulcke, Johnny Thijs and Thomas Leysen. During the award ceremony, people who know Dominique Leroy well and have worked or still work with her, within or outside the company, testified to her leadership qualities.
