Garant Holding founder, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Directors Anar Mammadov stated in an interview with The Business Year that 2013 was one of Garant Holding’s most successful years to date.
The company, founded in 2005 under the name ZQAN Holding, rebranded to Garant Holding in 2013. The direction and leadership of Anar Mammadov has helped the company grow and develop over the last nine years.
The rebranding of Garant Holding has resulted in a renewed corporate commitment to responsibility, initiative and the stimulation of new projects. Anar Mammadov believes the name Garant Holding is more easily understood in the many languages of global business, and better represents the diverse companies that operate under Garant Holding’s management.
Several projects and accomplishments contributed to Garant Holding’s success in 2013. The company received ISO 9001:2008 certification from the international certification organisation Tuv Austria Hellas. Upon a thorough investigation of Garant Holding’s activities, Tuv Austria Hellas awarded the international quality certificate in recognition of adherence to internationally recognised quality and corporate management standards.
Last year, Garant Holding opened the luxury hotel Rixos in Quba, an important region in the north of Azerbaijan. In addition to five-star accommodations, the Rixos features a golf course, an amusement park, a spa centre and access to Quba’s popular ski resort.
Another recent success was the efficient completion of the Trump Tower in Baku, Azerbaijan’s capital city. During planning and construction of the tower, Garant Holding worked to ensure sustainability and consistency with the styles of Baku architecture. This project showcases Garant Holding’s excellence in construction and hospitality, and will help promote Baku as an international destination for business and tourism. Garant Holding continues to work on many large-scale construction projects.
Garant Holding aims to be one of the most important economic forces in the dynamic, developing economy of Azerbaijan. To this end, Garant Holding strives to achieve customer satisfaction in all its products, services, and business endeavours. It embraces the corporate values of transparency, reliability and quality in all its work, and is looking forward to continued growth in 2014 and beyond.
The ongoing success and development of Garant Holding can be attributed to the unique characteristics of Azerbaijan, including the country’s young and growing economy, political stability, extensive valuable natural resources, and highly skilled human resources.
