UKBCCI Directors, members and their families would like to extend their prayers to Mr. Syed Manzur Elahi, who is currently suffering from Covid-19.
Additionally, it is with great sadness that we report that his wife, Niloufer Manzur, died from the novel coronavirus last week. She was the founder and principal of Sunbeams School.
Mr Elahi who was honoured with a UKBCCI Lifetime Achievement Award in 2019, is the Founding Chairman of Mutual Trust Bank Ltd. (MTB) and Pioneer Insurance Company Limited and currently serving as the Chairman of the Executive Committee of the bank. He is the Chairman of Apex Group, a leading business conglomerate in Bangladesh, and has won various awards for his contributions to trade and industry.
Besides being an eminent industrialist, he was also appointed Adviser to the Caretaker Government of Bangladesh, twice (1996 & 2001), for his leadership qualities, professionalism and non-partisanship.
We send him our deepest condolences for the loss of his beloved wife and we wish him a full recovery.
