Anil Patel

Newworld Limited CEO

After completing a Bachelor of Business from the University of New England (Sydney) in 1990, Anil returned to join the family business in Fiji.

Starting from grass roots at store level, he worked his way up through the organisation assisting with the expansion of the business into new cities and locations as a Store Manager. Post his time at store level, he had the opportunity to grow the business further, through roles in Marketing, Operations and later Buying. This eventually led to the role of Director and CEO of the company. His successes are not limited to the Supermarket chain, being the director of two other companies and most recently being appointed to the board of Directors for Walesi (Fiji’s new digital television service)

Throughout his career he has experienced and adapted to the constantly-changing environment of the retail sector in Fiji. Anil’s leadership drove the acquiring of the IGA Master Franchise rights for the Fijian Islands as the CEO of the Newworld group allows him to further contribute to the growth of the family business into one of the largest and fastest-growing retail chains in the country. His passion for success extends outside the business sector, being passionate about giving back to the community, driving sports like Netball and rugby at grass root s level and entering partnerships with Fiji Cancer society to raise funds and awareness through our “Pinktober” and “Movember” Campaigns.

Hear Anil speak at the Retail Commerce Forum on 6 April at Commonwealth House.
