It is with great sorrow that we share the news of Latifur Rahman’s passing. Honouree Rahman won the Oslo Business for Peace Award in 2012.
The late Mr Rahman was the Chairman and CEO of the Transcom Group. The group’s growth took place under adherence to ethical and responsible business practices that serve as a guideline for other businesses in the region. Mr Rahman was renowned for his leadership as well as his guidance and integrity, ethical standards and business acumen – well illustrated by Mr Rahman’s reelection as chairman of the Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce and Industry for a total of seven terms.
The scope of his work and his impact both in Bangladesh and world-wide were only matched by his unwavering commitment to ethical business practices. Mr Rahman exemplified the core of being businessworthy and was a true inspiration to business leaders worldwide.
