Mr. Kutubuddin Ahmed is considered to be one of the leading businessmen of Bangladesh, successfully running the conglomerates of Envoy Group and Sheltech Group with his visionary leadership, strong principle and self motivation. Having graduated from Bangladesh University of Engineering & Technology (BUET), he started his business with only a single garment manufacturing unit which has flourished to be the thriving conglomerate of today. His proactive skills drove him towards his successful tenure as President of BGMEA. Owing to his successful and dynamic entrepreneurship, Mr. Ahmed was honored as 'The Business Person of the Year 2016' by Daily Star-DHL Business Awards. LEED Platinum Certification in 2016 for Envoy Textiles was a striking success, adding another feather to the crown.
