Let’s cut to the chase. The journalistic impulse to find something shocking in the life of Sudhir Choudhrie – the founder of C&C group – is off the charts. Who is this billionaire, one of the richest British-Asians in the United Kingdom? How did he get his start in business? What is his poetry all about? Did you know he has one of the biggest collection of Indian art in the world?
Well the answer to all of these questions starts in India, where in the year 1949 he was born to a family of Indian businessman and entrepreneurs. After graduating from the University of Delhi with a bachelors in Economics, he started his own company rather than join his grandfather in the real-estate business. The enterprises were focused on a variety of activities such as importing TV equipment to India and exporting Indian agricultural machinery to the Soviet Union. Pretty soon Sudhir Choudhrie was very well connected and his enterprises and business experience allowed him to slowly climb the business ladder and he ended up settling in the United Kingdom.
London was not a big adjustment for Sudhir Choudhrie as it is like a second home with its large population of Indian immigrants and expatriates. In fact Sudhir Choudhrie has become an important influencer in British politics. He was awarded “Asian Business Lifetime Achievement Year Award 2013” by Theresa May and is also one of the biggest contributors to the Liberal Democrat party, having contributed over 1.5 million British pounds over the last decade. In fact he was appointed the Liberal Democrat point person on India policy by Tim Farron.
Not only is Sudhir Choudhrie active in business and politics, but he is also a writer and opinion leader. He actively writes in various magazines such as Huffington Post about issues relating to politics and India.
What’s next for this intriguing figure? Perhaps his biggest goal maybe to full handoff his various enterprises to his two sons as they are already quite active in day to day activities. However, if his recent activities are any indication, it is unlikely that Sudhir will be retiring anytime soon, but instead moving on to the next big thing.
