Chief Executive Officer

Mr. S.K. Agrawal

Mr Santosh Kumar Agrawal is a self-made entrepreneur recognized as a thorough industry professional in the field of Pharmaceuticals. Mr Agrawal was born to a poor family in a small village of Bakhri in Bihar. He ventured in the field of pharmaceuticals with his retail outlet Agrawal Pharmacy in the year 1971. Thereafter in 1975, the village saw its first wholesale store by the name of Jyoti Pharma. Jyoti Pharma made huge strides in the small village and was soon recognized as one of the pioneer stores in the entire district of Begusarai. In the year 1990, Mr Agrawal took a huge leap and shifted his base to Ahmedabad, the hub of Pharmaceuticals. He purchased Acron Pharmaceuticals Pvt. Ltd., a debt ridden company in huge distress.

His hard work ensured that the turnaround took just 2 years wherein the company was turned from a debt ridden company to one of the well recognized names in the Pharmaceutical circuit. In the year 2000, Mr Agrawal purchased another manufacturing unit by the name of Brussels Laboratories Pvt. Ltd. in Changodar, Ahmedabad. Brussels Laboratories was a state of the art manufacturing plant with separate B-lactum and non B-lactum facilities (one of the initial companies to have that).

Brussels manufactured wide range of pharmaceutical formulations including tablets, capsules, syrup, dry syrup, ointments, etc. Mr Agrawal was also a partner at Intracin Pharmaceuticals Pvt. Ltd. (Nadiad) which involved itself in the manufacturing of Injectables. Owing to unfair taxation policy which demerits domestic production in the state of Gujarat (due to excise duty differences), Mr Agrawal sold the manufacturing unit in the year 2010 but retained all its brands under Brukem Lifecare.

Today Mr Agrawal involves himself in designing customized sales models along with different franchisee partners across the countries. Having worked in almost every part of the pharmaceutical supply chain (retail, wholesale, manufacturing, marketing), he understands various needs of the market and hence is well suited to deal with any problems faced by the franchisee partners. He is an active member of pharmaceutical associations like IDMA (Indian Drug Manufacturers Association), DMMA (Drug Marketing & Manufacturing Association) and is also a business consultant and advisor to various pharmaceutical companies of the country.
