"If you’re not a risk taker, you should not get into business"Mr. Sayeeful Islam, Managing Director, CGG
The year was 1983. Bangladesh, still a baby nation on the verge of building its business infrastructure, was working on all grounds to make a space for itself in the world economy. Entrepreneurs were trying hard with their expertise and vision to provide support, infrastructure and jobs for the country to grow.
This is when Mr. Sayeeful Islam took a step that inspired his contemporaries. A chemical engineer by education from Texas A&M University, he took a look at the piece of the Bengal of Gold he had always kept close to his heart. He believed in collective growth and empowerment of the people in general, which would automatically lead to women empowerment and indirectly towards holistic growth of the national economy as a whole.
Leaving his job in the USA as a chemical engineer and returning to Bangladesh with a vision for growth for all, he established the building blocks of Concorde Garments Group. He then formed the 13th foremost garment factory in the country with his trusted partner in life, Sabrina Islam, also a scholar educated at the prestigious University of Dhaka, a woman entrepreneur, and winner of the Outstanding Woman in Business in Bangladesh Business Awards 2008.
Today, the company boasts to be a trustworthy partner of the nation. Through thick and thin, across storms and adversities, the next generation of this uncompromising couple, educated in US and UK, is also part of the business now. What started in a 400 square foot space is touching ground all over the world with a palette full of products, and growing every day, empowering, enabling and engaging those around them every day along the way.
