Earlier this week, the Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO), a peer-to-peer community of entrepreneurs, introduced Vijay K. Tirathrai as its new chief executive officer.
Tirathrai, who brings a wealth of business experience from both corporate and non-profit sectors, will focus on strengthening EO’s impact while driving the organization’s initiative of attaining 20,000 members and further building its global presence. Founded in 1987, the Entrepreneurs’ Organization has grown its global footprint to 147 Chapters in 48 countries.
Blair Assaly, EO Global Chairman, stated:
“EO’s global community speaks one universal language— entrepreneurship. Our members are part of an entrepreneurial ecosystem that celebrates diversity, rewards innovation and engages the world through business leadership, and Vijay is the leader to take EO to the next level.”
Tirathrai has notably made an indelible mark in a variety of businesses, spanning numerous industries in Southeast Asia for more than 30 years. As a business owner, Tirathrai has led numerous multinational business ventures, ranging from manufacturing, trade and distribution to fashion, marketing, retail, events and association management.
“In this role, I will continue building on the intrinsic value of, and need for, a peer-to-peer network of entrepreneurs who yearn to engage, share experiences and become stronger leaders in business and beyond.”
