HEM RAJ DHAKAL
He had the vision to globalize the remittance services and expand the business in South Asia. This was in order to help the millions of migrants in the Middle East and Malaysia to send remittances home in the most efficient and cost effective way. This mechanism changed the dynamics of remittances in South Asia in general and Nepal in particular, where historically, it has been difficult to give financial access to all its citizens especially in areas outside the main cities.
Today, IME Conglomerate consists of a number of companies with business interests in banking, remittance, digital finance, trading, IT, communications, energy, tourism, automobiles, insurance and infotainment and together has generated more than 45,000 jobs (including more than 5,000 direct and 40,000 indirect jobs).
Mr. Dhakal lived in Japan, Malaysia, the UK and the USA for more than two decades and established money service institutions in the countries including South Korea. He took the IME Conglomerate to the global marketplace and successfully completed the merger & acquisition of a few companies that are listed in the NASDAQ Fortune 500 Companies. It was Mr. Dhakal’s vision that contributed to evolving the family business into a corporate one where his team members now align with the group’s slogan Pioneering Spirit, the driving force of the team. His vision is to empower the youth by creating opportunities for them and making them the owners of the group.
His team members not only work for the company, but also own it. The IME Conglomerate promotes social entrepreneurship and has already invested in various startups to explore the business potential of Nepal and create opportunities for youth. In 2009, he co-founded the IME Foundation that conducts philanthropic activities.
The IME Foundation has been building schools and it also has a tie up with the Nepal Children’s Organization “Bal Mandir” to provide full-fledged scholarships to Orphan children, many of whom have been granted scholarships and have been enrolled in schools through the IME Foundation.
