Highly skilled in international marketing, business and product strategy, he has developed two highly profitable global companies with exceptional track records of accomplishment. Over the last two decades, he has applied these skills to his many global philanthropic activities; establishing an internationally renowned global think tank, the Institute for Economics and Peace and a private family foundation, The Charitable Foundation, which currently has over 2.6 million direct beneficiaries.
