To rise from a state where people were doubting you to CEO of the year in a huge feat. It is a success story that almost seems too good to be true. For Vijay Eswaran it’s a true story that is just another day in the life of one of Asia’s most successful entrepreneurs.
I must say that I had never heard of Vijay Eswaran until I started taking a marketing class in college. We were studying businesses abroad and there was an assignment to check some of the styles of presidents and leaders in business outside the United States. I came across several leaders that were successful, but Vijay Eswaran stood out to me because he was so uplifting. I read one of this books and soon started following him on Twitter. I find that he would motivate me to greater heights with his quotes and I didn’t even work for him. I could only imagine how great his employees must have felt to have someone that they could depend on to uplift them. There is no one more deserving of the Malaysian Business Award than Vijay Eswaran.

The personal approach Eswaran takes to his business includes the completion of training seminars by the CEO himself and his decision to accept awards in person adds to the love the organization has for the co-founder of QNet and QI.
