Dr Rami Ranger MBE, FRSA is a successful businessman who has been honoured seven times by Her Majesty the Queen -six times for Business and once personally for services to the British Asian Community. He was made a Member of British Empire in 2005. Rami is married to Renu and has three daughters.
Rami set up his first business in 1987 with a mere 2 pounds capital from a rented room in Hayes and through his sheer dedication and commitment, he now runs two of Britain’s fastest growing companies with an annual turnover in excess of £170 million. He sustains thousands of British jobs by exporting British supermarket products to over 110 countries.
His company, Sun Mark Ltd, has received the Queens Award for Enterprise for an unprecedented 5 consecutive years in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013, and in the process made British business history as no other company has received this accolade before. Sun Mark has been added to the Sunday Times most profitable 100 companies in Britain in their “Profit Track 100” league table for the past three years running.
Rami won the prestigious Institute of Director’s the Director of the Year Award for 2013.
Rami also devotes his time to benefitting society by launching ground breaking initiatives designed to strengthen social cohesion in Britain.
He is Co-Founder of the British Asian Conservative Link and served the organisation for over a decade as its General Secretary. He works hard to make British Asians more politically and publically spirited. Due to the work done by the BACL, there are now 4 Conservative Members of Parliament of Asian origin where there were none before.
Rami set up the Pakistan, India & UK Friendship Forum soon after the 7/7 and 21/7 bombings of the London Underground by British citizens of Pakistani origin. He realised that we have to make a conscious effort to build bridges with the Muslim community which was feeling isolated and dejected. He realised that Britain could not move forward by leaving any section of her population behind. Rami recruited prominent Pakistanis in Britain and launched the Forum which proved to be an instant success and thousands of British citizens of Pakistani and Indian origin are now celebrating what unites them in Britain. Besides, we now have once country and Queen and as a result, have become one.
He is a Fellow of the Princes Trust and works tirelessly to enable The Prince’s Trust to reach even more of our youth to pass on his experience and expertise in inspiring the next generation of entrepreneurs. His message is that one does not need a rich family or an elite education to succeed in life. However, one needs self-respect, good work ethics, commitment and empathy for others.
