Sudhir Choudhrie: Heart Transplant survivor and Entrepreneur

Sudhir Choudhrie was born in 1949 and raised by a single mother who was a great caregiver and role model. When he was eight years old, she took him for a medical scan and discovered that he had severe heart disease caused by a leaking valve. Although this health problem made Choudhrie’s life difficult, he didn’t let it deter his success. He completed his high school studies and won a slot at the University of Delhi. While there, Mr. Choudhrie focused on his economic studies to prepare for a rewarding career. After graduating, he briefly worked at a real estate business owned by his grandfather before opening his business.

In his business, Sudhir Choudhrie imported UK TV equipment and sold them to the Indian government. The business generated a lot of profit from the government officials in India, as they opened more TV stations across India. He expanded his business through profit to include consumable goods and farm equipment. He later launched the Magnum International Trading Company Ltd in 1975 to explore the Indian export market. With that move, Sudhir became a prominent figure in the export market across India and beyond. He won the attraction and attention of many businesses and was able to share his expertise in the business sector. Sudhir was able to work with Taj Hotels & Resorts to develop four popular resorts that attracted many locals and tourists. He partnered with Adidas AG to open a local branch known as Adidas Indian Trading. It led to the opening of many manufacturing plants and 200 shoe stores in India.

Sudhir Choudhrie continued to build his name in business sectors by focusing on promoting the growth of other companies across the globe. He joined the Ebookers PLC team as their non-executive director, and through his guide, it experienced tremendous growth. Sudhir also invested in Air Deccan, which grew significantly.
