Truly a wunderkind of his generation, Dr. Andy Adhiwana made the switch from medicine to management with the ease and panache that distinguished him in both fields. After graduating with honours from medical school, he gave up a promising career as a physician to pursue his interest in business. At 31, he is now Group CEO and Executive Director of Auric Pacific Group Limited. Be inspired by other investors at the Singapore Exchange by following them on the Spiking app today.

In Pursuit of Passion

The Asian Entrepreneur recounts how Dr. Adhiwana broke away from a path that seems to have been laid out for him by destiny — the eldest son of an esteemed cardiologist, he completed his Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery and Doctorate in Medicine, cum laude at Germany’s prestigious Heidelberg University in 2011.

Dissatisfied with the routine of his profession and finding his calling in business, Dr. Adhiwana entered the National University of Singapore, where he earned his Master of Business Administration degree. In 2013, he first joined Auric Pacific as Business Development Manager, and became Executive Director the following year. Upon the good doctor’s appointment as CEO last May, Auric Pacific hasn’t looked back since. Check out super SGX stocks like Auric Pacific with the Spiking app now.
