Director

Director, Gill Capital, 30

By the time he was 14, Sanveer Gill had played football with Andy Cole, tennis with Michael Chang and basketball with Shaquille O’Neal — all thanks to the fact that his family ran sports retail empire Royal Sporting House back then. Having divested in 2007, the family now spearheads Gill Capital and manages a diverse portfolio of fashion, dining and lifestyle concepts including iwannagohome! and Candylicious. “Being able to meet the incredible people that my family worked with was the best education I could have asked for,” says the 30-year-old. “It moulded my mindset in a different way.” Presently a director at Gill Capital, the younger of two children spends most of his time running H&M franchises in Indonesia and Thailand through the family’s holding companies Mthai and Hindo. Gill considers himself an entrepreneurial capitalist as well, with investments in a wide variety of start-ups across Asia, Europe and the US. “A lot of start-ups have great ideas, but sometimes need guidance on how to structure and grow their businesses — this is something that I have experience in and would like to pass on both professionally and socially,” says Gill who has also just returned from volunteering at an orphanage in Chiang Mai.
