Forbes Asia;3/24/2008, Vol. 4 Issue 5, p68
The article explores how Mukesh Jagtiani built a giant retailing empire in the Middle East. Jagtiani was considered a prodigal son. He had flunked several exams and eventually dropped out. With $6,000, he bought baby merchandise to sell to families, particularly expatriates. Starting modestly, Jagtiani focused largely on the thousands of Asian immigrants, mostly Indians and Pakistanis, who were moving to the Gulf for better jobs. Today, Jagtiani oversees the Landmark Group, one of the largest retailing empires in the Middle East.
