WilliamHeinecke chairman Minor International

WilliamHeinecke chairman Minor International

William Heinecke of Anantara Resorts

Founder, CEO and Chairman of the Minor Group
from wikipedia. link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_E._Heinecke

One of the best-known expatriates in Southeast Asia, Bill Heinecke is the driving force behind the unparalleled successes of the stable of subsidiaries under the Minor Group umbrella. These companies add up to an impressive list of leading global brands across the lifestyle and leisure sectors with a proud heritage that is deeply rooted in Thailand. Minor Corporation manufactures and markets a portfolio of leading fashion, cosmetics and leisure brands, while Minor International currently operates 16 world-class hotels and resorts and more than 630 branded food service outlets across Asia and the Middle East.

Born in 1949, William Ellwood Heinecke moved to Bangkok in 1963 with his family. Having previously been based in Japan, Hong Kong and Malaysia, the expatriate life was no novelty to them. His father served 25 years with the US military through two wars and later joined the foreign service, while his mother worked as an Asia correspondent for Time magazine. Bill became a student at the International School and, almost at once, began demonstrating the rare entrepreneurial skills that would become a hallmark of his remarkable career. Passionate about go-karting, he persuaded the editor of Bangkok World to let him write a column on the subject, his wish was granted but on condition that he secured advertisements to run alongside it.

Bill’s first venture proved so successful that, at the age of 17, he took over from the paper’s advertising manager while still attending school. By the time he graduated a year later, he launched Inter-Asian Enterprise to supply office cleaning services, and Inter-Asian Publicity – a radio advertising company – with around US$ 1,200 he had borrowed. The latter he later sold off to Ogilvy & Mather and, in 1967, founded Minor Holdings that would grow into The Minor Group over the next four decades, spanning more than 30 companies. Bill Heinecke was on his way, with an extraordinary series of triumphs and a few setbacks that he met philosophically: “Deals are like buses,” he was quoted as saying. “There will always be another one along the way.”

He married his high school sweetheart, Kathleen, in 1968 and they have two sons, David and John. A fine balance between family life and empire building saw him embark on his first hotel venture in 1978, the Royal Garden Resort in Pattaya. Though his endeavours have included advertising agencies and other hotels in Bangkok, Hua Hin, Phuket, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai and beyond Thailand’s borders, he is probably best known as the man who successfully introduced American-style fast foods to Thailand in the late 70’s and 80’s – brands like Mister Donut, Pizza Hut, and Burger King.

In 1991, Bill Heinecke became a Thai citizen. Still actively involved in a day-to-day basis in the empire he founded – especially overseeing global expansion plans – he now makes time to enjoy hobbies like piloting his airplane, scuba diving or racing vintage cars. A two-time past president of the American Chamber of Commerce in Thailand, he sat on the Prime Minister’s Foreign Investment Advisory Council, and is also a keen supporter of the Thai Elephant Conservation Centre. He authored The Entrepreneur, which has subsequently seen several reprints and has been translated into a number of languages.

Chairman of Villa Group MR. Gasim Ibrahim

Chairman of Villa Group MR. Gasim Ibrahim

In 1969, Mr. Qasim Ibrahim, after completing his education began his career as a clerk at the Government Hospital in Male’. Upon completion of a professional course in Accountancy, he was promoted to the post of Accountant in 1972. In 1973, after he left his job in the Government Hospital, he took up an appointment as Manager at M/S Alia Furniture Mart and subsequently worked for Crescent- a trading organisation, for a short period. In 1974, he joined an outlet of the Maldivian Government Bodu Store (MGBS) presently known as the State Trading Organisation (STO). His business skill as a retail shop manager emerged at this stage and was reflected in the sharp improvement in the performance of this outlet, which was ranked, as STO’s most efficient. This was the first evidence of his inherent entrepreneurial skills.

The experience gained during this period provided the motivation for setting up his own trading business in 1976, with an initial borrowed capital of US$ 2,000, which was then equivalent to 15,000 Maldivian Rufiyaa. He traded in commodities such as rice, tobacco, diesel and kerosene, which proved to be profitable, and the business experienced rapid growth. During the initial stages, the business was a complete one-man-show and it was Mr. Qasim’s perseverance, wisdom, and vision that helped it to grow to its current stature.

As a result of his financial prudence, after only four years in business, Mr. Qasim was able to accumulate adequate funds to purchase his first shipping vessel, an old fishing vessel converted to carry cargo and oil, to facilitate oil imports. By April 14, 1986, Mr. Qasim Ibrahim’s business had expanded to such an extent that a decision was taken to register his business under the name of Villa Shipping and Trading Company Limited (Villa). Thus came in to existence a company, which later went on to be one of the largest in the Republic of Maldives. Since then, the Company has diversified its business to include tourism and inter island marine transport under its umbrella. In addition, the Company trades in an increasing number of products in the Maldives. “Shell” and “Agfa” are two such renowned brand names represented by Villa in the Maldives, as a Sole Agent.

On the Registration the shareholders were Mr. Qasim Ibrahim and Mrs. Rabia Hussein holding 95% and 5% respectively of the share capital. For strategic reasons, Villa Shipping (Singapore) Pte Limited was incorporated in Singapore on December 19,1991 with Villa holding a major interest. The paid up capital by Villa shipping (Singapore) now stands at S$ 500,000.

In October 1996, representative office, with the primary objective of promoting Villa resorts, opened in Frankfurt, Germany. Constraints on the activities permitted through the representative office led to the creation of a company with wider objectives. Villa Holidays Touristik GmbH was incorporated by Mr. Qasim Ibrahim on 23rd July 1997 with a paid-up capital of DM 500, 000. The purpose of establishing this private limited company registered with German authorities is to act as a wholesaler for Holiday packages to the Maldives, an agent for sales of hotel rooms in the Maldives, sale of air tickets, and a vehicle for acquiring and trading of tourism related properties and real estate such as hotels and resorts world wide.

In the year 2001 and 2002 Villa Hotels, Tokyo and Villa Hotels, Hong Kong were established repectively. The objective is to further streghten the flow of tourists to Villa Hotels from the Asia Pasific markets.

In terms of keeping abreast in the Maldives, Villa is in the process of filling its senior cadre with Professionals in their respective fields. Over a period of time, Mr. Qasim Ibrahim has emerged as a well-recognised and respected personality in the Maldives, culminating in his election as a Member of Parliament in 1989. In addition, he has held and still holds various other posts in a number of Government committees and regional bodies. The following are some of the key positions held by him, bearing ample testimony to his business acumen and leadership.

* PRESIDENT SAARC Chamber of Commerce and Industry
* PRESIDENT Maldives National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MNCCI)
* FOUNDER MEMBER Maldives National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MNCCI)
* FOUNDER MEMBER Maldives Association of Tourism Industry (MATI)
* VICE PRESIDENT & BOARD MEMBER Maldives Association of Tourism Industry (MATI)
