Dr. Binod Chaudhary

Chairman of CG Corp Global, Honorable Member of Parliament, Nepal (February 2018–Current)

Binod Chaudhary is the chairman of CG Corp Global, a multi-dimensional conglomerate with a complementary business portfolio that comprises over 80 businesses on five continents and in 30 countries — including the United States, Rwanda, Serbia, the United Arab Emirates, Singapore, India and China. He has controlling shares in the largest bank in Nepal and numerous hotel investments, joint ventures and brands worldwide — like Taj Hotel and Resorts, Zinc Hotels and the ultimate wellness destination, The Farm at San Benito.

He is a global player in Fast-Moving Consumer Goods and the brain behind Wai Wai, CG’s iconic brand that earned him the epithet “Noodle King.” Thanks to Wai Wai, he has 2 percent of the world’s shares in the noodle market. His other business interests include Telecom, education and financial services, which are among the 11 business verticals he runs within CG. His drive and dedication is his intrinsic strengths. And contrary to popular belief, he proved that an entrepreneur can do business in Nepal and still emerge a billionaire — the only one from the Himalayan republic listed by Forbes.

In 1995, he established the Chaudhary Foundation for philanthropic activities that focus on improving the lives and strengthening the communities of Nepal. Through the Foundation, he is dedicated to creating socially responsible businesses and the sustainable development of Nepal. After the 2015 earthquake, the Chaudhary Foundation provided immediate response and aid to the communities most affected. They have committed to providing homes and schools around the country. He is also the Honorable Member of Parliament, Nepal.
