A. Norman Sabga, Executive Chairman of the ANSA McAL Group of Companies, has been selected for induction to the T&T Chamber of Industry and Commerce’s Business Hall of Fame for 2020.
Sabga took control of the group as Managing Director in 1996 and, upon the retirement of his father, the late Anthony N. Sabga (Dr. h.c.), he was appointed Group Chairman in 1999.
He was able to transform the Group’s approach to remain relevant and competitive while delivering exceptional returns to investors. As a leader, he placed emphasis on innovation and new business models while remaining true to an intuitive approach to business.
The ANSA McAL Group’s portfolio of businesses includes the construction, media, manufacturing and distribution sectors. In 2013, the Group crossed the Billion Dollar PTB threshold. The Group’s strategy of acquisition and expansion, which he piloted, still prevails. Today, the ANSA McAL Group operates in St. Kitts, Grenada, Barbados, Jamaica, Guyana and the United
States, and has been an exporter of lager to Cuba since 2018.
Perhaps best known for its flagship Carib brand, the company’s distribution of alcoholic beverages include brands such as Coors Light, Heineken Blade and Smirnoff.
He joins the ranks of 35 other iconic businesspeople who have been inducted into the T&T Chamber’s Business Hall of Fame since 2005 at the Champions of Business Awards ceremony to be held on November 20 at 8 pm.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions on gatherings, this year the Awards ceremony will be conducted virtually. The event will be broadcasted live on television on CNC3 and live-streamed inclusive of the induction, as well as presentations to recipients of awards in the three other categories. Champions of Business is one of the T&T Chamber’s Signature Annual Events.
