Our CEO wins the 2018 Asian Achievers’ Award in the Professional of the Year category

Dr. Ohri, who was born in India and arrived in the UK at the age of three has won the 2018 Asian Achievers’ Award at a gala event in London.

The awards ceremony took place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Mayfair on Friday 14th September, 2018.

The award citation described Dr. Ohri’s category as one of the toughest as it was reserved for professionals in the field of medicine, law, education, banking and finance “who have scaled the heights of their chosen profession”. Given the large number of people of Asian heritage with professional jobs in the UK this is therefore always a highly competitive award according to the organisers. He was praised for his distinguished professional career as well as his hard work and personal courage in moving from medicine into business. He was also given recognition for his entrepreneurial flair in growing a healthcare company which is making a demonstrable impact on UK society. The award was presented to Dr. Ohri by Vice Admiral David Radakin CB, Chief of Staff, UK Joint Forces Command and Mr. Raghavendra Rao, Chief Executive State Bank of India UK.

“(British Asians) continue to excel across all spheres of society…I am determined to ensure the government looks more like the country it serves, and to see a new generation creating opportunities for people across the whole of the UK,” Prime Minister Theresa May noted in her message for the awards night.

Among some of the other key winners, selected by a panel of judges made up of academics and entrepreneurs, included Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, who is the Metropolitan Police’s National Lead for Counter Terrorism and the Head of the Met Police’s Specialist Operations, who won the Uniformed and Civil Services category award for his contribution to policing in the UK. Rishi Khosla, the CEO of unicorn start-up OakNorth, valued at 1.5 billion pounds after just three years, who was named Businessperson of the Year, and Adarsh Radia, the founder of the popular Dishoom chain of Indian restaurants in the UK who was named Entrepreneur of the Year.

“The awards have grown in stature year after year and once again we received an overwhelming number of nominations, which is an indication that the success of the British Asian community in various fields continues unabated,” said CB Patel, the founder-chairman of ABPL Group and Editor and Publisher of ‘Asian Voice’ and ‘Gujarat Samachar’ – the weekly newspapers which invite its readers to nominate achievers for the annual awards.

“Our awards recognise all those unsung heroes within the Asian community – many of whom arrived here as migrants. They have made great strides, not just within their communities and professional sectors but have made huge contributions to British society and the UK economy,” added Patel, who presented a special Editor’s Award to leading NRI hotelier and Chair of the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan in London, Joginder Sanger, for his contributions in the field of business and philanthropy.

The Asian Achievers Awards has helped to raise around 1.5 million pounds for various causes and charities since its launch in 2000. This year’s chosen beneficiary was Oracle Cancer, a leading charity funding research into head and neck cancer, which attracted nearly 100,000 pounds through donations and an auction hosted by the British author Lord Jeffrey Archer.

The high-selling auction lots for the night included a shirt signed by the Indian cricket team, which went under the hammer for 5,000 pounds, a seven-night luxury tour aboard India’s ‘Deccan Odyssey” train clinching 10,000 pounds and a signed drum from a recent tour of the Rolling stones that reached the giddy height of 30,000 pounds.
