OUR team

NASAR AV | Chairman

Mr Nasar A. V, inherited his business acumen and entrepreneurship from his father (Late) A. V. Kunhi Kuttiali who was a prominent merchant in his native Panoor village in Kerala, India. Nasar started out on his business career at the young age of 18 and in a career spanning over 40 years since then has built up a sizable portfolio with diverse business investments in India, UAE, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. 

Mumbai, or Bombay as it was called then, was his chosen city to start his retail businesses in and where he picked up his prowess and leadership skills during the first 20 years of his career. He still has many business interests in India’s commercial capital. Around 25 years back, Nasar expanded his business to the UAE and has since diversified and entered into partnerships with several business groups in the Middle-East.

Apart from all entities under his chairmanship – these include 7 supermarkets and a cafeteria – Nasar is a partner in other businesses like Ain Al Madina Hypermarket LLC, Ajman; Al Madina Supermarket LLC, Sharjah; Radio Restaurant, Sharjah; Al Madina Supermarket LLC, Khor Fakkan; Fakhamat Al Madina Supermarket LLC, Sharjah; and Meena Centre FZE, Jebel Ali.

With his family engaged in the retail business for generations, a career in business was natural for Ashraf.
