PEOPLE POWERED SUCCESS
CIEL’s impressive 2023 financial results are a testimony to our entrepreneurial spirit and the dedication displayed by the invaluable people who work in the Group. Comprised of diverse teams, we embarked on a collective journey towards a common vision. We are proud of what we have achieved.
Our teams have been key in navigating through challenges, effectively transforming them into prospects for growth. The concept of ‘People Powered Success’ eloquently encapsulates this unwavering dedication to exceed expectations and pioneer innovation. Irrespective of individual roles or geographical boundaries, we remained united under the banner of one cohesive entity - the CIEL family.
As we report on another year of strong results, I would like to share some thoughts on the road that brought us to where we are today.
We set about in this report to shine a spotlight on the true engine of our success: Our People
Ten years ago, CIEL embarked on a journey of growth and adapted its structure to upcoming challenges. At the time, we took decisive steps to strengthen our foundations through a major restructuring of our share capital while reorganising our diversified operations into five business clusters across Mauritius, Africa and Asia.
“At CIEL, we possess a powerful asset that holds the potential to drive positive change across our operational regions – our dedicated and talented people.”
In our dynamic operating landscape, the cornerstone of our success remains our strategic approach and how we leverage synergies within our respective sectors and markets.
The recent improvements in economic prospects in Mauritius, East Africa and Madagascar and the impressive growth unfolding in India have presented us with substantial opportunities. Our strategy, centred on deploying our operations across six strategic sectors and investing into these burgeoning markets, continues to showcase its merit. It is not just about conducting business; it is about strategically positioning ourselves to thrive in the markets of tomorrow.
