As someone who has built, and continues to build, ‘attacker’ businesses and lead teams from startup to IPO, Azran passionately believes that organizations and corporations can deploy similar structures, focus and creativity that single-minded entrepreneurs have used to create breakthrough business models and innovative products and services.
Prior to iflix, Azran led AirAsia X, the long-haul division of AirAsia, to become a USD$ 1 billion company in annual revenue. Before that, he spent 3 years at Astro leading the startup and operational launch of Astro’s international investments and joint ventures all across Asia Pacific.
He brings hands-on experience in revolutionizing traditional ‘old economy’ industries and developing ‘new economy’ media and technology businesses to proof that world-beating breakthrough innovation need not be high tech or complex. He shares practical ideas to infuse an entrepreneurial spirit and an innovator’s mindset to any organization.
In addition to leadership roles in the aviation, media & technology, and capital markets sectors, Azran is a former McKinsey & Company and Booz Allen & Hamilton management consultant. An Ironman triathlete, Azlan is a travel adventure addict and a proud Stanford alumnus.
