Please join us for a Global Update from CEO and Founder of Sannam S4 and U.S. Business Centers, Adrian Mutton. Mr. Mutton will report on global market opportunities, in particular India. India is showing particular promise under the Modi government’s various initiatives.
Sannam S4 enables globally-ambitious organizations to explore, enter and expand into dynamic, high-growth markets – India, Brazil and China. Sannam S4 has helped over 135 international organizations in India.
The U.S. Business Centers initiative is designed to provide a unique and comprehensive platform for U.S. organizations seeking to explore, enter and expand in India. Operated by Sannam S4, with support from leading partners in the U.S.-India corridor like the U.S.-India Business Council, Citibank N.A., JLL and others, the U.S. Business Centers are a direct response to a request made by Secretary Kerry in January 2015 to create a support platform for companies, higher education institutions and other organizations in markets like India.
Adrian’s international experience began with launching his first business in India in 1993. He has worked in the country since then and lived in the sub-continent for a total of eleven years. Through leading the international expansion of a fast growth tech company in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, Adrian also developed a first hand understanding of doing business in China, South Africa, Taiwan, Singapore and the UAE amongst other markets. Serving clients from around the world, Adrian has been active both in establishing international sales and support offices, as well as implementing local development and manufacturing facilities.
Recognizing a local need, Adrian established Sannam S4 in India in 2008, to provide a trusted and fit for purpose trade support platform for organizations seeking to explore, enter and expand in the country. This initiative led Adrian to be appointed as the Founding Country Director of the UK India Business Council in New Delhi in 2008, where he led the design and local implementation of a new UK India trade support approach.
In 2015 following an engagement with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry in India, he was invited by the U.S. India Business Council to join President Obama and Prime Minister Modi’s U.S. India Business Summit in New Delhi. Inputs he provided were tabled for discussion in the historic U.S. India CEO Forum that followed. This engagement led to the initiation and launch of the U.S. Business Centers (www.usbusinesscenters.com) in India, a groundbreaking initiative pioneered by Sannam S4 and supported by the U.S. India Business Council (USIBC) and Citibank India. The U.S. Business Centers provide highly effective market entry and business expansion support to U.S. companies, institutions and non-profit organizations in India.
Based on Sannam S4’s success in India, Adrian has led the expansion of the business model into China, Brazil and the UAE and is driving the strong growth and ongoing success of Sannam S4 and the U.S. Business Centers internationally.
