George V Nereaparambil, an Indian mechanic-turned-businessman, is the proud owner of 22 incredible apartments in the world’s tallest building Burj Khalifa!
The founder of Geo Group of Companies – that is said to be one of the largest business firms in the Middle East holding a diversified portfolio, George believes that impossible is possible through dedication and hard work, and he proved it by making the Cochin International Airport a reality.
He is a gentle philanthropist who has contributed massively to various social causes and charitable organisations in Kerala.
George, born into a traditional business family in Thrissur, used to help his father in running the business of trading cash crops.
At the young age of 11, he started making money by selling disregarded seeds, and was making almost 90% profit by it. In 1976 he came to the Middle East and started working as an automobile mechanic. Looking at the hot climate of the region, he realised that there was big scope for an air conditioning business. He got into the business of trading and maintenance of air conditioners and spare parts in 1977 and floated the Geo Electrical Trading and Contracting Company and there was no looking back for him thereafter.
