Sudhir Choudhrie Work Experience and Organ Transplants
Sudhir Choudhrie was born and raised in India. He is a well-known philanthropist and businessman. He has a Professorship of Cardiology at Columbia University Medical Centre, which he uses to change lives. His passion for helping to change lives started at a young age. At eight, he found out he had a rare condition where he was missing a heartbeat because of a leaking valve. He has had a lifetime of health issues including a predisposition to infections. He did not let it hold him back. He worked even harder, knowing his heart could stop at any moment. Sudhir Choudhrie is an entrepreneur who has worked in international commerce, philanthropy, diplomacy and politics. In 1975, Magnum International Trading Company was his first job in India.
In 1995, he worked at Taj Hotels and Resorts and Adidas AG. With Taj Hotels and Resorts he created Taj Kerala, which is four local India resorts. During that time, he created the Indian Trading branch of Adidas. This opened 180 stores within India. From 1999 to 2005, he was a non-Executive Director at Ebookers PLC. In 2003, he invested in India’s first budget airline, Air Deccan. In 2006, he moved to London to work on various projects such as Alpha Aviation Group and Alpha Hospitals. In 1999, Sudhir Choudhrie had a successful heart transplant. As his health deteriorated and his work schedule remained busy, he eventually collapsed. His heart stopped twice within a few years and required a transplant.
As of 2019, he is one of the longest living heart transplant patients. The surgery discovered that he had the titan gene, which is the gene that can cause heart failure. His brother died in 1997 from similar conditions, and he wondered if his brother had this gene too. Sudhir Choudhrie wrote a bestseller about his journey with a heart transplant. He didn’t want the novel to be a biography. He encourages other transplant patients to speak about life after the surgery. A healthy diet can allow the organ to last longer. The Choudhrie Family Foundation was founded in 2010. It funds health, medical and education projects. He supports #OrgansWill, which has a goal of 62,500 new organ donors.
