Because the Sugar Group Companies is actually a collection of businesses that must work together as part of the larger group in a way that reaches the financial goals of the company, their CEO Gunawan Jusuf has demonstrated a strong ability to ensure that every employee, subsidiary and the various plants and offices all work together in a way that makes everything move together in perfect harmony. What Gunawan Jusuf is required to do every day is rather remarkable. In addition to many plantations and refineries throughout Indonesia, Sugar Group Companies also operates about a dozen offices located throughout Indonesia.

What Gunawan Jusuf does as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Sugar Group Companies is actually quite amazing, when you think about it. You see, Sugar Group Companies is actually a collection of businesses that operate independently, at the same time they work as a crucial part of the larger group. In other words, Gunawan Jusuf actually oversees a varied collection of Indonesia-based companies that grow and refine sugar to create a wide variety of very popular consumer products. One of these, Gulaku, is a refined sugar product that has grown to become a household name throughout Indonesia.

It is clear that Gunawan Jusuf thinks about everything, which is why it is no surprise that Gunawan Jusuf wrote and published a book a few years back. Entitled “Blue Gold,” his book discussed very honestly the importance of sustainability, especially as it pertains to the use of water. Gunawan understands better than most how precious and valuable all natural resources can be, even that water is not just the key to human life, but also a crucial element of his business model.
