When Tan Sri Shamsuddin Abdul Kadir started Sapura Holdings in 1975, he hoped that hard work would be enough to build a business that would provide for his family. The company grew to be something else entirely: an international corporate giant that made Shamsuddin one of Malaysia’s most successful Malay entrepreneurs.
The circumstances of Shamsuddin’s early life gave no hint of what was to come. Here he reveals, in his own words, how he lived through poverty and wartime hardship, his years in the Civil Service and how he navigated his way to the top of the business hierarchy.
A Driver’s Son documents more than just a legacy of business; it is also a story of family, humility, loss, gratitude and one man’s richness of spirit.
