Tipu Sultan Shikdar

President, 2021
JCI Chittagong

Our emotions have the potential to impair our judgment and our capacity to lead. All the famous leaders must have the ability to control their emotions, sometimes known as the ability to remain calm under pressure. When we talk about this potential in a leader the first example that comes into our mind is our Immediate past local president (IPLP) and National Director of JCI Bangladesh Mr. Tipu Sultan Shikdar.

On his quest to find fulfillment, Mr. Tipu Sultan Shikdar became self employed as a proprietor of a successful business which is known by all of us M/S Universal Agro Corporation. The success story of this great leader doesn’t stop here. He is also successfully fulfilling the respective role of a managing director by leading a large number of employees at Fit Well Sweater Pvt Ltd.

He believes in placing more value on perseverance than chance and the best work will produce the best results. His phenomenal journey to success inspires us nothing but only to move forward.

Shahidul Mostafa Chowdhury Mizan

President, 2020
JCI Chittagong

Today, Chittagong is a very cosmopolitan, affluent, and wonderful city. However, while we were growing up here, it wasn't nearly that way. All of this social development is now possible for the contribution of people like our respected brother Shahidul Mostafa Chowdhury Mizan, the current president of Lions Club of Chittagong Cosmopolitan. He also had an unforgettable
contribution to develop our JCI Chittagong as a former president back in 2020.

I believe that a director has a significant impact on the outcome of a business, thus he deserves praise if it succeeds. And here Shahidul Mostafa Chowdhury Mizan is successfully fulfilling his responsibility of a director for four successful companies such as Bangladesh Shipping Agents Association, Banshkhali Salt Mills LTD, Mizan Salt Mills LTD & K.R Ceramics LTD.

Consistency is the key to success that is what we learn from him. His never-ending success story expands of his other responsibilities of working also as a Managing Director at Spectrum International S.M Chowdhury Food and Beverage, S.M Chowdhury & Brothers (Clearing and Forwarding Agent) Chittagong Custom, CTG Airport, Dhaka Airport, BENAPOLE Custom.

Industry.

Ashim Kumar Das

President, 2019

Finding a mentor who will take the time to get to know users and company brand is important and to represent JCI as a brand we have our leader Ashim Kumer Das, President of 2019, JCI Chittagong who just didn’t work in the wellbeing of JCI Bangladesh nationally but also globally as well.

This multitalented leader of us played a vital role for JCI Bangladesh as a national director in 2020 and also as a national vice president at 2021. However, when it comes to contribute for the well being of JCI he didn’t took a step back to work for JCI globally as a JCI APDC development officer from 2019 to 2020 in Vietnam and further continued to work in the same position from 2020 to 2021 in Thailand.

Mashfiq Ahmed Rushad

President, 2018
JCI Chittagong

Integrator who have a shared vision with others and who inspire others to realize how that goal might benefit the community in the long term are characteristics of good leaders. Responsible leaders distribute the workload among their team rather than taking everything on alone. Among all the JCI leaders the
achievement of Mashfiq Ahmed Rushad is exceptional.

With a remarkable academic career, he graduated from Queen
Mary, University of London rated 125th in the QS World University Rankings by top universities in the world, as a mechanical engineer. In 2010, from the same university also he achieved Masters in
Sustainable Energy Engineering with Merit.

Between success and achievement, there is a critical difference. There are many successful people whose accomplishment doesn’t have any effect in our society. They only acquire highly sought-after credentials, land prestigious jobs, develop enviable careers, and bring in top-tier wages and incomes. But there are just a few examples of the accomplishment of actual contribution of a successful career that contribute to the society. Mashfiq Ahmed Rushad is one of those examples. In 2011, he launched the Qubee Wimax Internet service, which is owned by Augere Wireless Broadband UK, in Chittagong. He worked in the largest transport company in the world, First Group UK, for a brief period of time before he decided ultimately returning back to Bangladesh. After returning back to his hometown, he began working for his
family's business at Dong Bang Group in the textile industry, where he first held the position of AGM Maintenance before rising to the position of Executive Director and shareholder of the group's businesses in the trading of textiles, fertilizer, and basic commodities. Continuing his successful movement in career
he entered the engineering industry as the CEO of the company, representing the Atlas Copco Group in Bangladesh and several other MNCs under the name and brand GEN AIR Engineering.

His influential career achievements have a huge impact on his work for JCI Chittagong as a President in 2018. He represents a ultimate career success, something that very few people ever achieve in their career and a role model for the society to look up to.
