He was nominated by United Research Services and AsiaOne Magazine for the award.



A visionary and entrepreneur par excellence, Sayem Sobhan is the dynamic force at the helm of the Bashundhara Group, headquartered in Bangladesh. With his vision of building an economically empowered and self-reliant nation, he took over as Managing Director of the Group on 16th September 2001. Under his able leadership, Bashundhara Group has become one of the largest industrial conglomerates in Bangladesh, with over 20 major concerns and a global footprint.

His approach has always been underscored by a need to promote community welfare and to accelerate economic growth, especially in the fields of trade, manufacturing, sports, and journalism. Reflecting the ethos of the Group – ‘for the people, for the country’ – his far-sighted blueprint for corporate success has always been intertwined with the future and growth of the nation itself. However, it is his ability to transform the Group from a corporate powerhouse to a transformative force in nation-building and developing human resources that has earned him the mantle of a leader.
