Tej B Raj Lohia
Tej Lohia, Managing Director and CEO of Eagle Hunter Security, describes himself as “calm and in control”, probably the two best qualities someone in charge of security for high profile individuals and companies in the UAE can have. After building the business in the Emirates over the past 10 years, the CSI-loving Lohia is now planning to expand his business across the Middle East.
Despite the stresses of being on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, Lohia wouldn’t swap his role for the world. Although discretion in his business is key, he was able to reveal that he provided the security for Michael Jackson when he visited the region, the Miss World pageant and the launch of Virgin Atlantic in India. Celebs like Tom Cruise and Richard Branson have his number on speed dial too, yet he rates being nominated for the Young Achiever in Business accolade at the Masala Awards 2011 as one of the highlights of his year.
