The day we are born is also the day we start dying so make sure you make the most of every day

Take us through your educational and professional background that led to ATUS.
I moved to Dubai in 2007 after my graduation from India. Had the opportunity to work for international corporates like Lutron and Leviton Manufacturing USA in the field of lighting control. Since childhood, I never liked routine and a passionate believer that certainty is a flimsy fantasy and always enjoyed new and different things in life. My interest in sustainability helped me attain LEED AP BD+C accreditation title from the United States Green Building Council. I was curious to learn the science behind food and nutrition which helped me earn the FINEM title (Fellowship In Nutritional and Environmental Medicine) along with 60 medical doctors where I was the only non-medical professional in the group. My love for cooking led me complete the professional pizza making course at the ICCA, Dubai to become a qualified Professional Pizza Chef (Certified by Association of Pizzeria Italia). Now, pursuing my Doctorate program from SSBM, Geneva Switzerland. Life is not about living to build a neat and impressing resume, I believe. So I used to wear many hats through-out my career, but it truly personifies as my life’s work which I sincerely enjoyed. I was always been interested in the ‘creative’ side of things, so, I started to work toward building one. Thus, was born ATUS.

Define ATUS as an organization and its current position in the industrely?
ATUS is truly distinctive in offering creative and unique interior products. The trust built on our brand truth and our strong team with sheer artistry makes us what we are. We envision us to inspire the design community around the world and make ourselves a global choice through our bespoke approach in every project we do. Our USP is that ‘we don’t find customers for our products rather we find products for our customers'.
We pride ourselves as preferred partner of the most luxurious Hotels, Resorts, Luxury private Yachts and some Royal homes with a portfolio that includes a string of high profile projects in the Middle East, Africa, Central Asia and Europe.

What has been your success mantra that constantly helps you arrive at positive outcomes?
The words from my late Father, "If you have weight on your shoulders, you will eventually find a way to place it”. My father, Abdul Majeed Kadhiyar was my biggest motivator and inspiration to look at challenges as what that help us grow. His last words to me before dying was 'Celebrate life and not just survive' and I realize the big difference between living a life and just surviving. That keeps me moving.

Based on your strong professional experience, what advice would you give to the upcoming leaders in the same industry?
The day we are born is also the day we start dying so make sure you make the most of everyday and live a life to impress yourself and not anyone else. Those experiences of going after goals that’s beyond your comfort zones, having relationships that will challenge you, and living a heart centric life that outlive you are some important aspects in the path of success, I believe.
