His expertise lies in conceptualizing, strategizing and setting up new businesses. His philosophy on management, innovative and lateral thinking helps him in strategic planning, and developing brands from scratch and turning them into successful profit making ventures. He has been responsible for many firsts for the group.
The group’s philosophy of Better People, Better Planet and Better Profits has led it to become one of India’s top conglomerates. Today the group has one of the widest distribution networks in India. It’s philosophy, culture and way of working has led it to be over a billion US dollars and is growing at a steady pace of 30% year on year. The group firmly believes that the customer is the best judge of its products and It is crucial to understand the customer’s stated & unstated needs, and accordingly develop the latest technologies that are applicable across industries and cultures.
During his college days after school he worked at International Tobacco Company. Here, he was able change the culture between management and workers. His philosophy of treating each man as an equal put him in good stead, which later helped him to negotiate better terms with the unions of the factory. He was able to bridge the gap and create harmony. He was also instrumental in starting a literacy program for the workers.
After finishing college in India he started his new career working for Philip Morris U.S.A first as a trainee working in the Tobacco fields of North Carolina and then it’s plants in Richmond, Virginia. He then joined the international division of Philip Morris and was responsible for creating the Marlboro Index. Moving from here he became the brand manager of Marlboro cigarettes. He was part of the team that revolutionized the way Marlboro was marketed and how to make it relevant in today’s context by launching the first and biggest marketing program called ‘The Adventure Team’.
Armed with knowledge and experience he came to India in 1994 with a global perspective and a multicultural approach to work that gave rise to his new philosophy of management, and his innovative and lateral thinking style of working.
His first task was to revive the Group’s consumer goods business, which used to have collaboration with S.C Johnson from the U.S. Thus he had the upheaval task of re-evaluating the portfolio of products, their properties and the geography and market they operated in. In a short span of time he was able to turn around the group company, Modern Home Care Products Pvt. Ltd. and also gaining substantial share of cleaning products market in India.

With this idea Colorbar Cosmetics was born in 2004. The products he has created are developed in the best facilities and R&D centers in the world. This along with his innovative idea of creating brand stores similar to the ones for prestige cosmetics was created. His company offers the same quality, performance and experience at par with International brands like M.A.C, Bobbi Brown etc. but at a better price. With its innovative products and wide color palette, Colorbar has emerged as a favorite with the women of urban India. This has helped him in garnering a substantial share of the market in India. He is now set in taking the brand internationally.
He also is the brain behind India’s first of its kind convenience store – Twenty Four Seven Retail Stores that are open 24 hours, 7 days a week throughout the year, launched in 2005. These stores offer Indian consumer a complete international shopping experience with a wide range of products from ready-to-eat food, beverages, groceries provisions, over the counter medicines to various convenient services from Bill Payment, International & Domestic Courier, and a lot more round the clock. This has changed the way the new generation of India in New Delhi lives. Thousands of customers visit the stores daily to experience the American style hot dogs, the Indian thali or the chicken biryani or that thirst for a soft drink that you wanted to quench at 2 a.m. This international experience and round the clock offerings is becoming very popular youth of today. He plans to open over 1000 stores in the next 5 years.
Samir’s strength lies in his extensive Leadership and management experience coupled with excellent analytical and interpersonal skills. His new philosophy of management, innovative and lateral thinking, helps him in conceptualizing new ground breaking ideas which when combined with his excellent public speaking skills, make him a dynamic leader.
HIV / AIDS is a cause very close to Samir’s heart, for he believes that HIV / AIDS is something that will affect India in the near future. In 1996, he established the Modicare Foundation to prevent the spread of AIDS, enhance awareness and erase myths and misconceptions surrounding the disease. In 1998 he published and compiled a book called ‘The Positive Way’ that would raise awareness about HIV/AIDS is a interesting and empathetic way that would touch anyone who reads it. It also made the bestseller list consecutively for 2 years. The foundation won the President’s Award for their exceptional work in gender related issues in India. They have also been the case studies for many organizations worldwide. Today the Foundation does extensive work in the field of HIV/AIDS Awareness and Prevention as well as Gender related issues.

In early 1980, Wah Shing Sports Trading Co., Ltd, was first established to primarily engage in the import and wholesale of sports goods. With only three staff employed at the inception of the company, the focus was to service local sporting goods retailers and department stores, providing products such as rackets and balls, fitness equipment, swimming gear, and camping supplies.
As the domestic business developed, Nikko Sports International Co., Ltd. was established in 1987 with the purpose of broadening the range of business, and subsequently in 1991, the first manufacturing facility in Huizhou, Guangdong was established. As higher production capacity was required, it lead to the purchase of a 50,000-square feet land in Qing Hu Industrial Park in Zhuhai, China, and the construction of the 30,000 square meter production plant and facilities in 2003.
Nikko Sports International (China) Co., Ltd. was established in 1993, specializing in the Chinese domestic wholesale and retail market. “NIKKO” Camping and Leisure products are sold in 200 stores in the major cities across China. To service these stores and local distribution partners, regional offices have been founded in Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Hangzhou, Chongqing, Shenyang, Changchun, Jinan, Fuzhou and Tianjin.
