Bhanu Choudhrie also continues his family’s long tradition of philanthropic work. He has been especially recognized for his contributions to Paths to Success. This charitable organization supports people with long-term health concerns and limited financial resources. It also supports individuals with educational opportunities.
Bhanu Choudhrie is proud of his family’s entrepreneurial history. His father, Sudhir Choudhrie, established an import-export business in the early 1960s. This venture bought TV equipment in the U.K. and sold it to the burgeoning broadcast industry of 1960s-era India. His grandfather was chairman of the Punjab National Bank.
Bhanu said creating C & C Alpha was his way of expanding on the accomplishment of his family patriarchs while also seeking to expand into all new areas unrealized by those who came before him.
A trend that excites his interest today is the health and wellbeing sector. He said the up-and-coming generation of millennials is thinking in an entirely new way about their personal health. They want exciting lifestyles supported by optimum diet and physical conditioning. Mr. Choudhrie said that, from a business perspective, this sector holds great promise for investment and the creation of all-new industries.
