Obai & Hill are proud to announce that Ma’akum, a 16-member coalition of Bahraini business leaders running in the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) board elections in the 28th session, have walked away with a sweeping victory following the elections which took place on the 15th of February 2014. Ma’akum, headed by renowned businessman Khalid Almoayed, landed 13 seats to make up more than half of the board, securing the most votes with 3,128.
“It’s fabulous news,” said Mr. Almoayed.
“I was confident of victory, but I don’t want to sound too offensive to other challengers. The election went very smoothly and I appreciate the work that everybody put in. Our group will now work very hard for the BCCI and the business community.”
A full PR and social media campaign was delivered by Obai & Hill for the Ma’akum 2014 campaign. Services delivered included branding and identity design, artwork design for all marketing material and promotional booklets/flyers, as well as event management and coordination. From a PR perspective, we handled the day-to-day press management as well as social media management, press releases and distribution. Overall Obai & Hill were able to execute a very successful campaign, cited as one of the most visible campaigns in the 28th session and highly praised for design.
We wish the elected candidates the best of luck for the next session, and are happy to have worked with all 16 of some of the most influential and inspiring businessmen and women in Bahrain.
