As the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Sugar Group Companies, Gunawan Jusuf has managed to make a collective of independent companies work together as a single, cohesive unit. Now, that would be an extremely difficult thing to do if everything was under one corporate banner, even under the best of circumstances, but he is actually working with a collective of independent companies, who all happen to grow and refine sugar to make some very popular consumer products. Gunawan Jusuf has managed to make sure all companies have experience phenomenal growth. In fact, many of their products have become enormously popular, like Gulaku, a premium refined sugar product that is a household name all over Indonesia.
Because Sugar Group Companies actually encompasses multiple businesses, for Gunawan Jusuf to rein everything in to the extent he does is a phenomenal accomplishment. Reaching the collective’s goals, as well as the goals of each individual company, is an amazing record of accomplishment on its own, but to produce enviable growth at the same time is even more remarkable. All if this combined certainly represents Gunawan Jusuf’s greatest accomplishment. It is certainly why Gunawan Jusuf is almost universally revered for his executive and management skills. There is much for him to point to.
