In 2005, Anar Mammadov founded Garant Holding, a company based in Azerbaijan dedicated to building a world class portfolio based on integrity, social responsibility and ethical business practices. This portfolio has been created and amended through the acquisition and mergers of numerous other businesses, and continues to grow positively on an annual basis.
With nearly 30 brands now under the ever-growing Garant Holding banner, the company’s prospects are flexible and promising. Anar Mammadov has overseen the exponential growth of Garant Holding in a wide range of industries including:
- Hotel and Leisure
All of these industries have been explored and developed by Garant Holding with one important goal: to create products and services of the highest quality while helping develop and invest in the infrastructure of Azerbaijan.
Further expansion into other fields is ongoing, and has even recently resulted in a foray into publishing. One of the world’s leading educational magazines, National Geographic, has signed an agreement to allow Garant Holding to produce an Azerbaijan edition of this highly regarded publication. This is in line with Anar Mammadov’s commitment to increase sources of education in the country, as the Azerbaijan edition of National Geographic will report on issues, not just from around the world, but local to the Azeri people. The first issue is expected to be released in September, 2014, and this may mark the beginning of a trend as the company looks for future publishing opportunities.
Alongside this ambition to invest and engage with all forms of industry within Azerbaijan, there is also the aim to help promote and nurture the national values which have made the country a stable, resourceful, and forward-thinking country within the Caucasus region. Garant Holding works tirelessly with the country’s political leaders to help secure infrastructure and growth, while providing employment opportunities aimed at benefiting all Azeri people.
Unlike global conglomerates, Garant Holding has been organised in such a way by Anar Mammadov, that it takes a keen interest in each of its subsidiaries. All aspects of the company’s assets and brands are observed and appraised on a regular basis ensuring that ethical business practices are in place at all times.
Investing heavily in innovative technologies, and the phenomenal human resources of the Azeri people and beyond, Garant Holding has become an integral part of the Azerbaijan economy, encouraging political leaders, successful businesspeople, and all Azerbaijan citizens to forge a bright future for the entire country.
