Brief us on your educational and professional background
I was born in Malappuram district on January 10, 1970. I completed my schooling at Kololamba and Kunnamkulam where I did my Pre-degree in Unique College. After the studies, I left India and moved to Qatar where I worked with a relative in the retail sector. My first step in the business world was in 1998 with a vision of building my own empire. Starting from the water supply division, I developed the business by launching Alsuwayed Trading & Transport W.L.L in the year 2000 and expanded the business by entering into the Waste management sector.

I could develop the business further by commencing new companies like Sandflower Trading & Project development, Abston Trading & Contracting, Group 10 international, etc. This huge expansion has helped me to compete with big players in the Qatar market. Intending to strengthen my business management skills, I joined a bachelor's degree program in Business Administration and completed it in 2005.
