He put his heart and soul into the business to take the firm to where it has reached now.

He has had a tremendous growth and success through his hard work. Coming from a family that had carried out this business for over 20 years prior to his arrival, it was quite natural for him to take the reins and guide the firm through its challenging times to lead to success.
