Elsewhere in this edition, VX Studio is an award-winning developer-led design consultancy firm, based out of Dubai. Currently managing a portfolio worth over US$5 billion, they are one of the leading design firms in the Middle East, with a well-earned reputation for excellence. Taking time to provide us with an insight into the successful firm is Co-founder and CEO, Hamid Kerayechian to find out how the firm has thrived in this notoriously challenging sector.
Also in this issue, we discover more about Zenith Bank (Ghana), which was incorporated in April 2005 as a private limited company and commenced banking operations in September of the same year.
