Gunawan Jusuf has demonstrated his ability to make sure that every employee, subsidiary company and the various offices and plants are all working together. It is definitely a challenge that would intimidate many other businessmen, but the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Sugar Group Companies, Gunawan Jusuf, faces the challenge of overseeing a collection of Indonesia-based independent companies and making sure they are able to sell enough product to make a profit for the overall collective. In addition to the many plantations and refineries located throughout Indonesia, which Gunawan Jusuf must coordinate and make work together, Sugar Group Companies also operates from nearly a dozen offices located throughout Indonesia.
The companies under the corporate umbrella of the Sugar Group Companies all grow and refine sugar for the purposes of creating their very own sugar products. Keeping all of those disparate elements working together would be difficult for anyone, but Gunawan Jusuf manages everything to the extent that the entire collective makes a handsome profit. Creating growth and increased profits from such a varied set of companies can’t be easy, but then, Gunawan Jusuf isn’t an average CEO by any stretch.
Under the leadership of Gunawan Jusuf, The Sugar Group Companies has thrived. His ability to move this series of companies in a profitable direction, to reach the goals of the overall company, has made him something of a legend. He has helped to drive the enormous growth of Gulaku, a premium, commercial, refined sugar product that has become one of the most recognizable rank names in Indonesia. That is just one product, however; there are actually many other products. His enviable ability to make sure every employee, the subsidiary companies, and the various offices and plants are all working together is likely Gunawan Jusuf’s most amazing accomplishment.
