How has your entrepreneurial journey been so far?
In 1999, I relocated to Indonesia, enticed by a job offer from PT. Polysindo Eka Perkasa, now PT. Asia Pacific Fibers. As Regional Marketing Head, I spearheaded initiatives in the Middle East, North Africa, and East European markets for the company. In 2005, I joined PT Indorama Synthetics as Regional Marketing Head for North America and key European markets. I had
been handling key clients for the company and developed new avenues for the company in markets like the USA, Canada, Mexico, Spain, the UK, and Italy.

In 2009, I bravely left my stable job to establish an international marketing and sourcing organization in ASEAN, serving customers in the Americas and MENA regions. Our network expanded gradually in various countries. We now operate in 8 countries in the Americas, 12 in Europe and Africa, and 10 in South Asia and ASEAN. Our products include raw materials for textiles, chemicals for pharmaceuticals & cosmetics, and spares for palm kernel expellers. We are also venturing into recyclable products & sustainable energy resources.

The journey I embarked upon has been a blend of challenges and triumphs, a testament to the ceaseless pursuit of knowledge that befits any ambitious individual with a vision

I am guided by the principles of KARMA as per Bhagavad Gita. I follow the Heart fulness System of Meditation to stay calm and focused.

You possess over thirty years of experience. How has been your path to success and what is your success mantra?
The journey I embarked upon has been a blend of challenges and triumphs, a testament to the ceaseless pursuit of knowledge that befits any ambitious individual with a vision. I embrace a lifelong commitment to learning, drawing wisdom from industry veterans, peers, and even my sons, who have been introducing me to novel digital technologies. Aligning personal goals with the organizational vision is paramount; an organization is a towering umbrella, providing shelter &solace to employees and their families. When I established Elite Global Group, I was mentally prepared for the Herculean efforts required to forge a new brand from scratch. With strong determination, I persevered tirelessly to establish a solid foundation for the organization. During this arduous process, my family comprising both kin and trusted confidantes stood
unwaveringly by my side. Together, we form a unified and expansive family.

How would you define Elite Global Group as an organization and its current position in the market?

Our offices are staffed by seasoned professionals with a minimum of 10 years of industry experience, emphasizing close collaboration with manufacturers and end consumers to foster mutual growth. We also provide International Marketing Consultancy services to our clients.

What is the future destination you are heading towards?
