KUALA LUMPUR, March 17 (Bernama) -- AirAsia Bhd Chief Executive Officer Aireen Omar has been named one of the '25 Most Influential Women in Treasury' by the inaugural Women in Treasury Summit held in Singapore Tuesday.

The award honours Aireen's commitment to improving the fortunes of the company and its finance and treasury operations, said Daniel Flatt, editor of The Corporate Treasurer magazine.

"The award is both a testament to the forward-thinking nature of AirAsia and the drive and energy of the individuals who work there," he said in a statement.

Aireen was the Director of Corporate Finance & Treasury for AirAsia Bhd before helming the Chief Executive Officer position in 2012.

The '25 Most Influential Women in Treasury' list is compiled to inspire more women into the business of treasury and finance, which is predominantly populated by men.

The three-day event organised by The Corporate Treasurer brings together the region's top treasury community officials for a series of panels, roundtables, workshops and awards.
