Benny Manuel, the Director of Currency Exchange Intl P/L, is an ex-naval pilot (one who takes great pride in having served his nation) who came to Australia in 1999. It is interesting that a man who conquered the skies during his tenure as a naval pilot in the Indian Navy from 1986 to 1995, having flown from all classes of Naval Ship decks, today helps people conquer their financial challenges by providing them a viable, safe and reliable platform for money transfer and exchange.
“Australia is a beautiful land of opportunity that helps you dream and realise those dreams,” he says.
Benny began his career post his Navy stint in Dubai as a business development manager for a real estate company and then took on a similar role at Singapore Exchange and Finance Sydney, before starting his business in 2012. “I define growth as a component in the calculation of value,” says Benny.
Benny is a realist and takes life one day at a time, probably a trait he cultivated during his time as a navy pilot. While many people dream of success each day, Benny believes that a person can make it happen when he wakes up each morning.
He believes in a healthy mind in a healthy body, and therefore keeps himself active playing squash. Benny is a successful businessman, for, according to him, “You don’t learn to walk by following rules, you learn by doing and falling over.”
