As the Founder of C&C Alpha Group, Bhanu Choudhrie has helped to shed new light on emerging markets throughout the Philippines and India, while also creating and developing positive financial trajectories for startups, as well as, established companies. Since launching the international private equity firm in 2001, the renowned entrepreneur, and philanthropist has continued his trailblazing efforts across the financial plane, dabbling in various sectors, including hospitality, real estate, healthcare, and banking, while creating a diverse portfolio for C&C Alpha Group. Over the course of his career, he has participated in a number of philanthropic efforts and received a myriad of awards and honors.
Bhanu Choudhrie attended Boston University where he studied International Business and Marketing, and after completing his undergraduate studies, he was accepted to the Harvard Business School’s Owner Management Program. Once Mr. Choudhrie’s collegiate career came to an end, he decided to build upon the entrepreneurial foundation laid by his family in India during the 1970s. This decision resulted in the formation of the C&C Alpha Group, which he viewed as a natural progression to the family business. In addition to heading C&C Alpha Group, Bhanu Choudhrie is also a member of the Board of Directors with Customers Bancorp and was previously a board member with Atlantic Coast Financial Corporation.
Despite his strict work schedule which generally consists of a 12 hour day, Bhanu Choudhrie also stresses the importance of taking time away from his many business endeavors. Taking time away from the office allows him the time to exercise his creative mind, bringing forth new ideas that can potentially elevate the company. He also enjoys physical exercise, in particular, boxing, as well as leisurely reading – each of which plays a significant role in his ability to remain productive amidst the volatility of the financial markets.
