In tribute to Charles Chikhani
The Award of Determination and Perseverance
, June 2008

Team spirit is in our culture in GDS and our achievements are the results of the combined effort of each team member.

On September 19 2007, Charles Chikhani’s passing has created a deep shock within the company and GDS team has lost a much liked and respected colleague.

As a tribute to Charles, GDS has decided to dedicate every year an award for determination and perseverance, two qualities that represent Charles very well.

This year, this award has been given to the persons who have worked closely with Charles and who have taken the entire burden after his tragic death: Samar Bou Kheir, Micheline Barakat, Sylva Kachkorian and Adel Yazbeck.
