Mohamed Jinna

Director, MES Group, 31

He may be in charge of managing the logistics and warehousing division of Mini Environment Service (MES) and overseeing operations at The Leo — the first purpose-built housing facility for foreign workers to receive the Green Mark Gold Plus award — but Mohamed Jinna has bigger dreams. The group founded by his father Mohamed Abdul Jaleel has a portfolio that provides integrated property and facilities management solutions, of which he hopes to strengthen and broaden. Entering F&B and hospitality, land acquisition and new fields of logistics are various projects and ideas he has underway. One of which is The Daulat — a 16-room boutique hotel in Little India — which he manages. He is also developing a 100-room serviced apartment project and is looking into buying a magnesium mine in China. With so much on his plate, what is his guiding philosophy? “In both business and my personal life, I always make it a point to treat people with honesty, sincerity and loyalty,” he shares — principles he inherited from his father, a well-known philanthropist.
