A Bangladeshi family story
The story of DIRD begins with Mr. Itemad Ud Daulah, the founder and current chairperson of the group.
After earning his degree in Civil Engineering from BUET – the premier engineering university in Bangladesh – Mr. Daulah spent most of his early career working in South East Asia for multinational engineering firms.
In 1983 while he was heading up the south-east Asian operations of GKN KELLER GMBH (now Keller Foundation), Mr. Daulah made the bold decision to return to his homeland and contribute to the development of Bangladesh.
35 years of experience
DIRD GROUP started operations in 1983 with its engineering company DIRD Private Ltd.
In 1984 DIRD GROUP moved into the garments sector with DIRD Garments Ltd., one of the leading woven bottom manufacturing companies at that point in time.
Today, DIRD GROUP has branched out into a number of diversified industries and has grown into one of the leading conglomerates in Bangladesh.
Family members working together
Mr. Daulah’s daughter Shejuti Daulah joined the organization in 2004 and his son Nabeel Ud Daulah in 2010.
Shejuti obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Finance from the University of New South Wales, Australia and her MBA from Syracuse University, New York, USA. She is currently serving as Finance Director.
Nabeel studied computer engineering at Columbia University, New York, and also completed a Masters degree in Economics at Cambridge University and UCL. He is currently serving as Managing Director.
