Dubai, December 4, 2018:   Quality management and business excellence expert, Dr Flevy Lasrado, was presented with the ASQ-UAE Quality Professionals Award at a prestigious award ceremony in Dubai recently.

The award was presented by Mr Elmer K. Corbin, Chairman of the Board, ASQ and Director and Global Delivery Excellence Leader, IBM Watson Health, USA and Mr Ali Ibrahim, Deputy Director General for Executive Affairs - Dubai Economic Department.

Launched in 2015 under the patronage of Dubai Economy’s Business Excellence division, the award is the first of its type in the Middle East carrying global ASQ brand recognising outstanding quality professionals based on the principles of fairness, transparency, objectivity, independence with high standards and performance.

Speaking at the function, Mr William Troy, CEO, American Society for Quality (ASQ) in the USA, emphasised the importance of quality professionals, their work in the region and the need to recognise their achievements.

Reacting to the award, Dr Lasrado said: “I am honoured and feel blessed to have got this award. I made my humble entry into the realms of quality and excellence years ago, and I believe I have made my journey to mark new ways of excellence, with the boundless learning platform and support of ASQ and UOWD”.

“Quality is about creative thinking and finding endless new means of serving a customer who is immensely engaged and entwined in the crux of the digital era. Salutes to ASQ’s MEA determination in their efforts to drive to shape and build leaders for the future in the region,” Dr. Lasrado added.
Professor Mark Gabbott, Dean of the Faculty of Business at UOWD, underlined the University’s commitment to offer curricula focussed on current and modern knowledge in order to prepare students for their future roles in the global market.
