Felt all the way from Bacolod where three generations of his family were born and bred to his base in Dubai, Ishwar Chugani’s unique presence and simple philosophy is a positive force that moves his home, his corporation, and his community. As the CEO and Managing Director of Giordano Middle East, he heads the group’s business in the Middle East, India, Africa, Central Asia and Europe. He is indeed both an influence and an inspiration for all his fellow expatriates.

The 2014 Retail Professional of the Year Awardee remains grounded with the help of his family. He shares his secret, “Always remember to use your three H’s in whatever you do: Your HEART, so you make sure you love what you are doing, your HANDS which requires you to work hard, and your HEAD where you find the common sense and ability to judge what’s best.”

More than his professional success, what is fascinating about Ishwar is his distinct connection with the Philippines and the sense of belongingness he shares with “kababayans” – something that gels with his cosmopolitan Giordano “World without Strangers” philosophy. “For me, the Philippines, India and the UAE are ‘home’.  I am a person with a more holistic view of the world. I am definitely dugong Bumbay, pusong Pinoy.”
