BEGINNINGS

Dr. Bavaguthu Raghuram Shetty (“Dr. B R Shetty”) was born in Kaup, Udupi in the state of Karnataka, India in 1942. He served as the Vice Chairman of the Municipal Council in Udupi, where he worked towards the cause of providing proper sanitary facilities, building concrete roads, schools, underground drainage and septic tanks for people to lead a better and healthier life.

STEPPING ON TO THE ARABIAN SOIL

In 1973 he set foot in the desert land of the United Arab Emirates to pursue his ambitions. Armed with nothing more than a clinical degree in pharmacy, Dr. B R Shetty commenced his entrepreneurial career in the UAE at a time when the nation was in its formative years. With his commitment, hard work, vigour and dynamic personality, he was able to start, build and succeed at multiple businesses over the years and today, his business empire is spread across the globe.

UAE EXCHANGE, NEO PHARMA AND OTHERS

With his legendary foresight and vision, Dr. Shetty identified expatriate aspirations to contribute back to the loved ones left behind in their home countries. This led to the birth of UAE Exchange. Over 34 years after its inception, UAE Exchange is a leading global money transfer, foreign exchange and payment solutions brand with over 750 direct offices across 32 countries. UAE Exchange has over 9,000 employees representing 40 nationalities. With a rapidly expanding customer base of more than 7.9 million customers, product portfolio, and network, it is one of the fastest growing corporate brands in the Middle East.

In order to achieve his dream of providing services across the entire healthcare value chain, Dr. Shetty founded Neopharma, the UAE based pharmaceutical manufacturer in 2003. Inaugurated by the then President of India, Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam in Abu Dhabi, Neopharma is centred on using the concept of modular manufacturing following global benchmarks in manufacturing technology and putting in place efficient control mechanisms. Neopharma has its own research and development wing and offers quality medicines at affordable prices. At the same time it has contract manufacturing for international pharmaceutical giants across both innovator products as well as generic brands. Neopharma has relationships with Merck, Pfizer, Biocon, Astra Zeneca, Jubilant Pharma, Boots UK, Hetero Pharmaceuticals and many others.

NMC TRADING

In 1975, when Dr. Shetty took to exploring opportunities in store with nothing more than a few dirhams jingling in his pocket, the UAE had just emerged as a fledgling nation. In the 1970s and 1980s, with the rapid expansion and growth of the UAE, Dr Shetty was busy spawning new lines across distribution of pharmaceuticals, medical and scientific equipment, fast moving consumer goods, educational and veterinary products. Established in 1981, NMC Trading is the only distribution business to have a pan- UAE presence across all its distribution categories. In the financial year ended 31st December 2012, the distribution division had revenues of US$271 m. A few leading brands distributed by NMC Trading include 3M, Nivea, Pfizer, Siemens, etc.

FAMILY

Dr Shetty owes his success to the support of the people around him and those who believed in him, especially his better half Dr. C.R. Shetty, who he considers as the pillar in his life. His kindness and selfless spirit is also visible in his 4 children – 3 daughters and a son, who follow his footsteps by contributing towards making the world a better place.

Bavaguthu Raghuram Shetty (known as Dr. B. R. Shetty) is the Executive vice-chairman & chief executive officer of Abu Dhabi based NMC Healthcare and UAE Exchange. The company when established in 1975 was initially interested in hospitals and hospitality, but since then has diversified into sectors including pharmaceuticals, global financial services, retail, advertising and information technology
