From a full field of participants, George Lambros (CHRO – Alghanim Industries) and Dave Peterson (GM - JCB/Fouad Alghanim) emerged as the 1st place winners. Joon Ho Bae (Regional Manager – Tyson Corp.) and Ki Won Yoo (Marketing Manager – Khaled Trading Co.) took second place, while Wael Al Welayti (Manager – Albalagh Press & Printing) and Fadia Emadi (General Manager – Emadi Co.) came in at third. Ayman Mattar, GM – Xerox, and Zahra Sadeq, Marketing Executive – Xerox, presented the winners with the trophies.

The top three teams from the Kuwait qualifier will join other finalists from the region in the Grand Final, which will be held in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE at the end of 2015.
