Dr. Vikramkumar Naik - CEO & Founder

It was Dr. Naik, an anesthesiologist who started his career in the coalface of African hospitals, that has created a strategic vision which has led to the success and growth of our Group. His vision began with the realization that Africa required better quality affordable medication and supplies and dedicated his life to make sure that this objective was fulfilled. His extraordinary personal leadership approach has brought and still continues to bring people together. It is through our visionary leaders that today, we as Group, are able to implement ideas into results, translate dreams into reality and transform challenges into success, not only with one company or country but across the African continent.
