Sudhir Choudhrie-Succeeding in All Aspects of Life
Born in Delhi, India in 1949, Sudhir Choudhrie faced tragedy when losing his father at an early age. This led to his being primarily raised by his mother, who he now considers a tremendous influence and role model in his life. Choudhrie excelled in education and went on to the University of Delhi where he obtained a bachelor’s degree in Economics.
An entrepreneur at heart, Sudhir Choudhrie did not join his grandfather’s real estate business after graduation. Instead, he began to buy television equipment from the United Kingdom and sell it to the Indian government; who were focusing on developing India’s own television network. Evenutally, Mr. Choudhrie was able to develop his business as an export company; which included the selling of farm machinery to India’s largest trade partner of the time, the Soviet Union. The success of his export business led Choudhrie to begin the Magnum International Trading Company Ltd. This company was created in 1975 and became the firm that oversaw the exporting portions of his affairs.
Sadly, through all is success, Choudhrie attained international recognition through a tragic event. Living his entire life with the same heart condition that claimed his father’s life so many years ago, Sudhir Choudhrie suffered a major cardiac arrest which forced him to be helicoptered to a nearby hospital for an emergency heart transplant. After surviving the surgery, and in true entrepreneurial spirit, Mr. Choudhrie turned this tragic story into a success with his book titled “From My Heart: A Tale of Love, Life and Destiny”. It is an autobiographical depiction of his journey living with and almost succumbing to his heart condition.
Through it all, Sudhir Choudhrie still remembers his humble beginnings as well as all the bumps in the road throughout his life and makes a tremendous effort to give back to his community whenever he can. He is the benefactor of the Columbia University Medical Center in New York City; where he had received his heart transplant surgery. Choudhrie is also a benefactor at Green Templeton College at the University of Oxford as well as being an active member of his family charity known as Path to Success, which helps UK citizens that are disabled and homeless.
Currently, he is the Vice Chairman of C&C Alpha Group; a business consulting firm that partners with fellow entrepreneurs and advises them regarding global expansion, investment opportunities and profit potential. Choudhrie’s expertise have afforded him a highly successful career and created a myriad of opportunities to give back to his communities.
