The awards are organised by the Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce and Industry, under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces. The award was presented by His Highness Hamdan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Ruler's Representative in the Western Region, to Fast Rent A Car partner, Mr. Saeed Omeir Yousef Al Mheiri, during Monday’s presentation ceremony at Emirates Palace Hotel.
The Sheikh Khalifa Excellence Awards are the UAE’s most prestigious business awards. Designed to reward companies for their performance and efforts in supporting the UAE economy by adopting quality excellence principles, they aim to set the benchmark for other companies in the UAE across a variety of sectors and bring business practices in the UAE in line with global standards.
Companies from across the UAE are invited to apply for the awards based on outstanding performance and fulfilment of nine key criteria set by the European Foundation For Quality Management (EFQM), including leadership processes and customer results. Companies are required to detail their execution of these criteria, and once they pass this stage, EFQM trained assessors carry out on-site inspections.
Fast Rent A Car, the UAE’s leading locally owned rental agency is the only vehicle rental company to be honoured in this way. The company first scooped the Certificate of Appreciation award in 2006, before repeating the success again in 2007. In 2009 Fast Rent A Car made history by becoming the first and only rental company to pick up a coveted Silver award in the Service category.
“Against the backdrop of a difficult economic climate over the past few couple of years, providing market-leading standards of customer service and investment in people is something Fast Rent A Car has continued to place as a number one priority,” said Ahmed Abood al Boasy, Group General Manager at Fast Rent A Car. “Being honoured by the Sheikh Khalifa Excellence Awards for a fourth time is a major achievement for the company and all of our employees.”
