RAM

As CEO of BDC Holdings, a company that’s grown from four to 450 employees in under a decade, Ram is an unstoppable force in the business world. It’s his dream to build a global conglomerate powered by talent and considered a ‘people’s organisation’. “Throughout my career I’ve been a disciple of the Warren Buffett style of investing – he’s an excellent teacher in showing young entrepreneurs that there are times to accelerate and times to hit the brakes.”

Having arrived in the UAE 18 years ago, Ram describes his path to success as a mix of pure passion, teamwork and a keen sense for unique business opportunities. “Transcending from being an employee to becoming an owner was a life lesson, and scaling it was the reward,” he adds, saying, “I’m proud that the service I provide globally today has its roots in Dubai.”
