Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - 31st December, 2006
This year has seen some major developments in Celframe and fortunately it has been good news all around. Firstly they acquired a CRM company for $16.75 Million, then started their operations in Australia, launched their first product in the market which has received rave reviews and raked in millions in revenue, then Arun Pudur buys over the company stake of Celframe to become it's sole owner and now to end the year with Billion Dollar revenue and thereby making it's sole owner Arun Pudur effectively a Billionaire in his own right.
When asked what he feels now that he is a Billionaire, Arun Pudur said "Well, nothing has changed for me, i am still the same old guy who started his business life at the age of 13 in a scooter garage. I will always remember where i came from which helps to stay grounded". When asked to elobrate on his business life, Billionaire Arun Pudur added that he started the scooter garage after borrowing $50 from his mother on interest with his sibling and started a scooter garage and in six months the main mechanic left the garage so he and his sibling started to service the vehicles and in few years they became the No.1 garage, then he sold it for a multimillion dollar profit to it's competitor when he finished his degree and in between also put his hands on champion dog breeding followed by selling computers from home. He added "even though we come from a very powerful and well to do Priest clan and movie financer household my parents never gave me even 0.10$ without me begging my mom, so i decided to earn on my own. My education and all my needs was taken care by my earning since i was 14 years and i thank my parents for teaching me the value of money".
Visibly emotional looking Arun was seen hugging his parents in the press meet, which clearly indicates he is very close to his family and also he treats his employees as his family members as well.
