Galana Team

In 1991, Mr. Iqbal Rahim – a seasoned oil trader and entrepreneur – founded Galana Petroleum Limited (GPL). GPL has now become the supply and trading arm of the Galana Group (Galana), that consists of several downstream business units. Prior to starting Galana, Mr. Rahim spent the first twenty years of his career working in an International Oil Conglomerate.

Mr Kumar Gunness, Galana Vice Chairman, joined the company as an investor and shareholder in the year 2000. The Group’s Port, Terminal & Storage business units as well as the Madagascar Distribution Business are managed by a seasoned and accomplished CEO, Mr. Manoj Ramdin, who has been with the Group for over 13 years.

The GPL team is led by Gary Ellis. Gary is an accomplished leader, with a track record of working with Oil companies like Mobil Oil (currently part of ExxonMobil) and Abu Dhabi based Star Energy. At the heart of each of our business units lies a thriving, multi-cultural team comprised of highly qualified, experienced and motivated individuals. Galana remains committed to nurturing a ‘Culture of Excellence’ by continuously supporting training and development programs that promote a knowledge community within our own organization.

Together, the Galana team works in seamless synchronization to supply refined oil products across its established and new-growth markets.
