The ceremony was held at the MetricStream GRC Summit, which took place on November 7-8, 2016 at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London.

The MetricStream GRC Journey Awards celebrate and recognize individuals, customers, and partners who are leading their organization’s GRC Journey, championing GRC programs, and achieving superior business performance through GRC. A total of ten awards were handed out in four categories – GRC Journey Awards, GRC Visionary Awards, GRC Practice Leader Awards, and GRC Partner Awards. Presenting the awards were MetricStream Executive Chairman, Gunjan Sinha, and Chief Operating Officer, Gaurav Kapoor.

The GRC Visionary Award category recognizes individuals who have a passion for GRC and a strong vision for their organization’s GRC journey. These individuals are the driving force behind their organizations’ GRC programs. They envision the road ahead, and work hard to champion the cause of GRC. They are also renowned thought leaders who willingly share their knowledge and expertise with the industry through published insights, webinars, and videos.

Mr. Hussain won the award for his vision and leadership in GRC at Qatar Development Bank. With over 20 years of experience in enterprise risk, credit risk, and other governance functions, he has a deep understanding of GRC. As the executive sponsor for the GRC project at Qatar Development Bank, Mr. Hussain has played a pivotal role in educating business unit heads on the project, driving consensus amongst stakeholders, and ensuring that change management and user adoption is swift and smooth. Today, Mr. Hussain is a strong champion for integrated GRC, and he is a sought-after speaker and active participant in various industry associations such as GARP and the Credit Risk Group.

“I am both humbled and honored to receive this prestigious award,” said Mr. Hussain. He continued, “I accept it on behalf of our entire GRC team who worked with their minds and hearts on this project. Without them, our GRC journey would not have been as successful as it proved to be, nor would it have been possible to reach the milestones that we have. I would also like to express my appreciation to the Head of Internal Audit, Adel Eldesouky, the Head of Compliance, Hamad Haider, and the CEO, Abdulaziz Nasser Al-Khalifa for their complete buy-in and support throughout this project.”

Continued Mr. Hussain, “This award recognizes the maturity of our GRC processes and the seamless integration that we have been able to achieve with our MetricStream GRC platform. We are on the right path in our GRC journey, and look to many more successes in the future.”

Commenting on Mr. Hussain’s win, Gunjan Sinha, Executive Chairman at MetricStream said, “Steering a large organization on their GRC journey is no easy feat, especially when there are multiple stakeholders, functions, and processes involved. It takes a leader like Mr. Hussain, with vision, courage, experience, and dedication to lead the organization in the right direction. As a result of his efforts, Qatar Development Bank is a leader in the region for their adoption of an integrated approach to GRC.”
