Lord Raminder Singh Ranger CBE, the founder and Chairman of Sun Mark, an international marketing and distribution company is my mentor and a true motivator who encouraged me to go ahead with the idea of zozter. As a highly successful British businessman and social and political reformer he has made a mark in this country.
When I came to London from India, I had left my family behind and the challenges of settling in a foreign place had intimidated me. My initial days in London were not that great. I had to do odd jobs and I was running low on confidence as well as finances. My intellect, creativity and innovative ideas found no gratification either. It was in that tough phase I met Mr Ranger (as we call him) who not only encouraged me to give my best at work but also helped me leverage my brilliance in this country. Impressed by my commitment at work, he gave me work in his business organization and continued to guide me in every phase of my new life. He motivated me to go ahead with entrepreneurial ideas. I can honestly say he really helped me settle down in the UK.
He has always been a father figure to me. The best thing about him is he motivates everyone and takes care of the community coming from India. He nurtures the energy and enthusiasm of young people and guides them to go ahead and experiment in life.
Mr. Ranger spent his childhood in Patiala and has studied from the famous Mohindra College, and also from the Govt. College, Chandigarh. He came to London in May 1971 to study Bar at Law. He has been a self-made man and that’s the reason he has supported the dreams of thousands of Punjabis and Indians who come to UK seeking a better life and putting their ideas into action.
Mr. Ranger has done a lot of social and humanitarian work as well. He was also appointed the Member of the Order of the British Empire in the 2005 and again, the Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the 2016. He has also been created Baron Ranger of Mayfair in the City of Westminster in 2019.
I dedicate this venture, zozter, to his business acumen, vision and ever-helping nature. People like him create success stories with their support.
