CFO Profile: Suren Singh | Morvest Group

Suren Singh | Chief Financial Officer | Morvest Group

Surendranath Singh - current CFO of Morvest Group - started working for Simeka Business Group in 2005 as the Chief Financial Officer. When the company changed names in 2011 and became Morvest Business Group, Singh was still serving as the CFO. Later on, the company changed its name again and became Morvest Group. Changing names is not the only radical change Morvest Group has been through, as the company also went from being an ICT company to a global diversified investment holding company.

According to Singh, a big passion for the job is the key ingredient to his succes. "I want to know more about my craft and the work I do than anyone has ever done in the history of the World." For his work as CFO of Morvest Group, Singh has been nominated for the CFO Awards 2015.
