Given his background, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that Gunawan Jusuf published a book entitled “Blue Gold” a few years back, especially given the subject matter.

It is likely Gunawan Jusuf’s proven ability to make sure every employee, subsidiary company and each of the various offices and plants are all working together that marks his greatest accomplishment as Sugar Group Companies' Chief Executive Officer . As CEO of the group, Mr. Jusuf oversees a number of independent Indonesia-based companies that grow and refine sugar for many popular consumer products, including some of the most popular product in the country. Because his isn’t one single company, it is clear his role as CEO means managing a number of plantations and refineries throughout Indonesia, as well as the dozen or so offices located nationwide.
