Dr. Thomas Alexander, the name synonymous to the growth and success story of Al Adrak. He has been the founder and investor at its inception 28 years ago, the visionary and mentor for its transformation from a small group to an advanced engineering flagship, and currently steering the firm to its mission at its helm as the Chief Executive Director. The vision and mission set by Dr. Alexander were quite common to everyone i.e., growth, success and money. But, it was quite distinct and appealing on the way he became successful and how he utilized the benefits of success to serve and inspire a vibrant thinking group of colleagues.
He had left behind the conventional concepts of entrepreneurship and business development, and got hold of his strong principles on relationship, commitment and trust in nurturing his organization. He developed strong relationship with his colleagues and developed a sense of togetherness and belongingness among them. He emphasized and imparted the value of his principles to his colleagues and the whole team speaks and acts loud the power of commitment and trust, which is truly and solely the thrust for Al Adrak, propelling it to higher altitudes of success.
His virtue of commitment to clients, vendors, bankers and colleagues on delivering the promises had cleared the way for building a strong relationship based on trust and reliance, and they have been the unofficial ambassadors for Al Adrak's mission all these years. His business model has always been admired in the industry and was quite impossible to recreate or follow upon, with the current trend of hire and fire policy in the job market. His focus on the market is primarily to engage the current resources to its maximum utilization and to ensure job satisfaction to his team. This model of employee oriented business development had gifted him with a rare collection of highly motivated and performing colleagues, spending their long and fruitful career spans with Al Adrak, some even since its inception. It has helped Al Adrak assert an impressive growth rate of 40% year over year with the current annual turnover at $350 million.
