Founder of the UAE-based Regal Group of companies, Vasu Shroff is a regional icon in the business world. The 60-year-old group, which was established in 1952, has grown quickly to cover a number of different sectors, from technology and real estate, to garment distribution and luggage.
It all started when Shroff set up Regal Traders on the banks of Dubai Creek, to deal in wholesaling and indenting of fine fabrics from India and Asia. Since then, Regal has emerged as a household name, and is best known as one of the UAE’s largest fabric retail chains. The firm offers a range of fashionable fabrics from all around the globe and is now a supplier to top couture houses in the Arab state.
